NEP TUNE’S PL AYGROUND
(Clockwise from top left) Jack Hendrix ascends from the abyss during dive testing. At just 17, he’s already an accomplished spearfisherman. The S 408’s versatility and panache make her a wonderful choice for an expedition yacht’s tender. A freediver follows the safety line toward some sweet oxygen. Photographer Marc Montocchio, an experienced freediver, shot every image on these pages sans scuba tank. Here he shows us what the surface looks like to a diver coming up from depth. Spearfishing isn’t the only fishing the Pursuit S 408 can do. She has two 61-gallon in-sole fish boxes, a transom livewell and, as you can see, plenty of good spots for rods. (And her 44-knot top speed can get her out to the fish fast.) The structure provided by the reef attracts baitfish, which in turn attract bigger fish, which in turn attract even bigger fish, which in turn attract, well, us.
