Sea Vee 270z’s high-tech, cored, uni-body construction results in reduced VOC emissions. They are able to achieve this using a state-of-the-art manufacturing process where the hull, stringers and bulkheads are fabricated using a vacuum assisted resin transfer infusion (VARTM) process, which also makes a higher quality laminate, and a practically indestructible boat. A patent-pending hull design allows for minimum resistance regardless of speed or sea conditions, and the cross-ventilated twin stepped hull of the 270z has greater speed and more fuel efficiency than ordinary stepped hull boats. This boat offers superior handling to increase the safety of everyone on board while producing a fun ride.
For functionality, there are two 6-foot-long, 75-gallon insulated fish boxes built into the forward casting platform, with all fish boxes draining overboard to keep the bilge space clean. A 1″ toe kick runs the perimeter of the forward casting platform, aft raised deck and gunnel for a safe 360-degree fishing experience from an elevated position. A 107-gallon storage compartment between the fish boxes features a removable floor that hides three group 31 batteries for a high-thrust trolling motor. A 25-gallon livewell is integrated into the forward area of the cockpit as a convenient step to the forward casting platform. The forward deck hatch in the cockpit provides storage for a five-gallon utility bucket, eight life preservers and a safety kit.
The customizable console has every upgrade imaginable and the 270Z can be ordered with a hardtop. Ample storage for toys, rods, and personal and safety items can be found in the 9-foot-long storage lockers, and the boat can be customized with optional leaning posts or folding chairs. The 270Z is available with single or twin outboard engines and can handle up to 450 hp on the transom. Its 110-gallon epoxy coated aluminum fuel tank is mounted on the boat’s center of gravity to help prevent trim angle changes as fuel is added or consumed. All light fixtures are LED and the cup holders, rod holders and cleats drain overboard or onto the deck and out through the scuppers. A LE version will be available that includes additional family-friendly features.
