XO 270RS Cabin
With a slender deep-vee aluminium hull, vertical stem, bolt upright wheelhouse and heavily curved screen, the 270RS looks like a boat from the future. On board the wheelhouse is very practical. A central door forward gives access to the starboard helm position, the dinette lies aft to port and converts to a double berth to augment the single berth running forward under the cockpit seating. Large sliding overhead deck hatches, a sliding cockpit door aft and a panoramic curved screen add light and air, while the D4-300 under the flat aft deck adds plenty of power. On the move it feels unstoppable, the aluminium hull proving both extremely quiet and very capable, almost to the point of sensory deprivation as it eats up the miles at a steady 30 knots. Marketed as a fast transport or commuting boat, it has a sense of purposefulness that few can match.
