We gleaned this rendering and some details about the Stingray Boats 273CC.

One reason we’re hot to sea-trial the 273CC is that it represents another -opportunity to run Stingray’s exclusive Z-Plane hull. Simply put, the Z-Plane hull design creates three separate deadrise-angle zones: steepest between the keel and first strake; a bit less angle between the strakes; and even less angle between the outboard strake and chine. In years of testing Stingrays, the result has always been an easy-planing, efficient boat with excellent handling.

This boat will also boast a high-tech build. For example, it is a fully resin-infused hull, which minimizes weight and maximizes stiffness. It offers a carbon-fiber-reinforced deck, and it is a composite boat. The Coosa transom and composite main stringer grid provide rot-free strength and rigidity. With a standard hardtop, the 273CC will be Yacht Certified. Our sources say twin outboards, probably up to 500 hp total, will power the boat. Neither the price nor the displacement is available yet.
