Where practicality and performance meet
The 270 Centre Console is Striper’s newest model of their largest boat. Measuring out at a full 27’ along the centreline, this is a full-sized watercraft that is capable of taking you just about anywhere you’d want to go. The high bow and deep-v entry give it a very seaworthy shape, allowing the 270CC to handle all sorts of conditions safely and comfortably. The 718 litre fuel tank gives it the endurance to match the performance, providing an excellent platform for all kinds of fishing trips.

As far the layout, there is a v-bench in the bow, and another bench across the stern for your passengers. At the large and well-designed console, there is a seat wide enough for the Captain, plus one. There aren’t perhaps as many or as spacious seats on the 270 as you would see on other boats, but copious guest seating is not the intention of the 270. The Centre Console is designed for fishing. You can walk the full way around the boat, without obstruction. This generous interior layout allows for plenty of space to land the big catch, and more than enough elbow room for you and your fishing buddies to spread out around the rail. There are lockers and storage throughout the boat for your tackle, rods and other gear.
The construction standards that Striper applies are top of the line. Closed-cell foam used throughout ensures high levels of reserve buoyancy, as well as significantly reducing the vibration onboard. There is no wood used anywhere in the construction, meaning no worries about rot to degrade your boat. Striper is so confident in their methods that all boats come with a five year warranty on all the factory installed components, and a lifetime warranty on the construction.
The Striper 270 Centre Console is an excel-lent platform for fishing, whether you want to go ten minutes down the lake or thirty miles out to sea.
