Boarding through the portside entryway made it obvious the 270 is built to entertain and impress. The cockpit is spacious, accentuated by a beam nudging 9 feet in width. Roaming around, we discovered luxurious extras normally found on larger Sundancers, such as a cockpit wet bar and the electrically actuated engine hatch. Adding to the entertainment appeal of our test boat was a curved, portside L-shaped lounger with interior storage. In the cockpit and the cabin, we found ourselves pulling handles, opening to storage compartments or features adding more livable space topside and below. A notable example is the aft seat that unfolds into a two-person transom platform, adjacent to the swim deck with its four steps. Below, a head and galley with full appliances and berths for four impressed us for a boat in this category. Day-trippers or overnighters are fully accommodated with all the comforts of home. Space and functionality are just part of the 270's appeal.
