Sea Ray 270 Sundeck
By Tom Richardson on March 31, 2015
The new 270 Sundeck from Sea Ray is available in both sterndrive and outboard configurations, with numerous options for further customization. The roomy boat boasts seating for 15, as well as large “social zones” that invite gathering. Meanwhile, cleverly designed storage areas can accommodate almost every type of boating and beach accessory imaginable. An optional cockpit wet bar and a standard head make the 270 Sundeck a natural for entertaining, and well suited for long days on the water.
Sea Ray put a lot of thought into the seating on this boat. The transom features an articulating aft-facing lounge that lifts and lowers to accommodate a multitude of positions. The cockpit features convertible port and starboard helm seats that allow conversation to flow freely, while the bow has comfy twin lounges with armrests. Rich, diamond-pattern upholstery, available in 2 color schemes (Cognac and Ivory), lends a touch of luxury.
Boarding and exiting the boat is easy, thanks to well-placed grab rails, an unobstructed starboard walkthrough from the swim platform, ladders in both the bow and stern, and a handy side-access step. A new submersible swim step option gives boaters an additional way to connect with the water.
For watersports enthusiasts, a forward-facing, folding tower with integrated Bimini top can be ordered as an option. The 270 Sundeck is available in a wide array of hull colors and graphics.
In terms of performance, the 270 Sundeck has a top speed of 47.5 mph when powered by a 300-hp Mercury XL Verado Pro outboard. Fuel burn at that speed is 29.8 gph. At 3500 rpm, the boat will do 27 mph while burning 9.4 gph and getting 2.9 mpg. At 4000 rpm, speed is 31.1 and fuel burn is 11.8 gph (2.6 mpg). The above numbers were provided by Sea Ray.
