What a nice boat!  A master mechanic and craftsmen bought this Denali in 2006 and put a lot of love, labor and money into this baby, and it shows. Countless hours have been extended to make her beautiful from her walnut shell beaded, then sanded, then compounded, then waxed, bottom, new graphics, cushions and canvas.  But the good really stuff starts with brand new  Volvo crate motors with custom painted exhaust, outdrives, blue printed props.  A new windlass, anchor rode and chain with a custom wash-down forward.  An over the top air compressor system that runs not only to blow up enormous water toys and tables, but a freight train horn that will make sure everyone hears you from miles (maybe states) away! Updated electronics (Raymarine E80 GPS, dual frequency fishfinder and 24 mile radar), digital tachometers, gauges and hour meters for the new motors, all panels custom installed in fiberglass trim and a pretty Edson wheel with power knob top off the helm, while a new fridge and head update the cabinet. An incredibly clean boat throughout, her bilge and motors are the most impressive.  Seller is looking to make a move, so compare this to any other 28 Denali and search can end here.

Vessel Walkthrough

From the Powerboat Guide:  

The Pursuit 2860 is an upmarket sterndrive pleasure boat whose practical layout will appeal to anglers and day cruisers alike. Only a few 28-footers can claim the built-in versatility of the Denali this is a boat equally well adapted to fishing, swimming, or leisurely weekend cruising. Built on a seaworthy deep-V hull with moderate beam and an integrated swim platform, the focal point of the Denali is her spacious bridge deck with its posh L-shaped lounge seating, wet bar, and well-designed helm. The aft cockpit is large enough for several anglers and their gear, and the transom contains a freshwater sink, insulated fish box/cooler, and raw- water wash-down. Below decks, the Denali’s well-appointed cuddy cabin contains berths for two with a teak-and-holly sole, removable table, galley with sink, refrigerator and stove, and an enclosed head with shower.
