Overview

Manufacturer Provided Description

Although the hull of the 3000 Express is only slightly more than 30 feet in length, the molded, integral bow pulpit increases the overall length to 32' 8". The beam is a modest 10' 6"; draft is 2' 10"; fuel capacity is an adequate 210 gallons; water capacity is marginal at 30 gallons; waste-holding capacity is only nine gallons - hardly enough to get through a weekend without a pumpout.

 Large cockpit with fold down transom seating. Large bait well and in deck fish storage.  When your not fishing it will do double duty for all your fun needs, weather it is cruising or cocktail party. 

The cabin has a large face to face dinette. Galley to Port with under the counter refrigerator and stove top. Teak and Holley flooring. Large double bearth. The Dinette converts to a 6' 6" bed as well.  Inclosed head has a vacuflush toilet. vanity and sink with a shower head.  Great storage through out with a hanging locker as well. Teak woodwork gives the traditional feeling with low maintenance.

The materials and construction quality of the 3000 Express ranks among the best of production boatbuilders. The bottoms are constructed with solid fiberglass and resin strengthened by a stout fiberglass composite grid system. The hull sides are fiberglass composite with a balsa-wood core for strength, rigidity, and light weight. Attachments are neat, without the jagged edges found on lesser quality boats. I've yet to find failures of structural components even on several boats used in some extreme conditions. The only potentially serious problem I've encountered, and on more than one occasion, is elevated moisture in the hull sides below the engine room ventilators. In at least one case, the balsa core was found to be separated from the outer fiberglass laminate. The problems result from the manner in which Pursuit mounts the engine-room ventilators through the hull side without removing and sealing the balsa core at the penetration. Depending on the model year, either 3-M's 5200, or Plexus, a structural adhesive, was used to mount the ventilators. If the seal is not perfect, seawater spray can get into the balsa core. If this happens, the repair is further complicated by the 5200 and Plexus materials used in the factory. The bond is so strong that ventilators are likely to be destroyed in the process of removing them. Although Pursuit has shown a willingness to work with owners to solve this problem, the molds for the ventilators were destroyed by one of the five hurricanes that struck Florida in 2004; matching ventilators are not available for replacement.

The cockpit arrangement is likely to satisfy cruiser and fisherman alike. Although not huge, it will accommodate three or four anglers easily with the transom seat stowed out of the way. There's a large fish box across nearly the full width of the cockpit at the transom, a bait-prep center, tackle storage chest, sink with icemaker below, and very sturdy transom door for bringing in the big ones. Visibility is excellent from the bridgedeck, which features a lounge seat to port and helm seat to starboard. The arrangement for engine instruments and available space at the helm for instrumentation is very good. Below deck is a comfortable, albeit small, cabin with more than six-foot headroom. There is an enclosed head and shower to port followed by a counter with single-burner galley stove, small sink, and microwave oven. Forward is a double berth offset diagonally across the forepeak. Along the starboard side is a traditional dinette that converts to an extra berth for a single adult or two children. There's a small hanging locker forward of the dinette. The quality of craftsmanship and materials used for the interior is as good as can be found on production boats.

. There doesn't seem to be much of a difference in speed between the various power options with a cruise speed between 23 to 25 knots and a top speed around 30 knots. The boat is quite dry and the 21-degree deadrise hull provides a smooth ride.
