Leon Slikkers left his job at Chris Craft in 1955 to build a new brand of wood runabouts. Six years later the company began building in fiberglass. By 1977 Slikkers and S2 Yachts began the Pursuit series of boats. Since that time Pursuit has rapidly built a strong legacy of high-quility center console, walkaround, and express fishing boats. Fewer brands can offer the vast array of models and styles Pursuit presents as its fleet of fishing and cruising boats.
“Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about building boats. The most valuable lessons have been the most basic-solid concepts of quality construction, durability and styling. It’s the combination of applying these very basics and the latest technologies that’s allowed us to create boats that have been the flagships of the Pursuit fleets. This has enhanced the experience and pleasure of families who enjoy fishing and the outdoor environment in which pursuit boats are the most comfortable.” -Leon Slikkers
