Versatility is key in the 270’s cockpit. At the helm, a double-wide seat allows the captain to invite company when underway. When not, pivot the backrest forward and the seat becomes part of a starboard, L-shaped lounge. The port seat features a similar split personality. With the backrest pivoted aft, it’s a comfortable, forward-facing perch for one. Pivoted forward, it becomes a place for a passenger to comfortably face aft and spot for water sports or to join the party on the L-shaped lounge that runs 6 feet down the port side and another 4 feet across the stern. Behind, a 4-foot-7-inch by 3-foot-2-inch sun pad is positioned overlooking the swim platform. Pull the backrest forward, just like you’d do on the helm and passenger seat, and a cleverly designed hinge allows it to serve as an aft-facing backrest for the now expanded sun pad while simultaneously lifting the cockpit bench for access to the insulated storage below. Even the bow cockpit serves multiple masters, with forward-facing seats in front of each console quickly converting to a wraparound lounge with the addition of two filler cushions.
