Sea Ray did away with the concept that an outboard powered boat had to have a large engine well cutting into the usable space in the aft seating. Instead, it went with a full beam swim platform with an outboard bolted right to the center. In this manner, the SDX 270 OB features a fully usable platform with storage to one side and a concealed reboarding ladder to the other. Sure, we may not be able to jump off the center of the platform, but one step to the side isn’t going to kill anyone and it still has more usability than virtually any other outboard boat we’ve seen. It’s a distinguishing feature that we are surprised we haven’t seen before, but we won’t be surprised when we see it from now on. And the smart money says we surely will be seeing it a lot more.
With a single 300 Mercury Verado XL Pro outboard turning a 19-pitch Enertia prop, we reached a top speed of 47.5 mph at 6000 rpm. At that speed we were burning 29.8 gph giving us a range of 93 miles. Best economic cruise was measured at 3500 rpm and 27 mph. That speed reduced the fuel burn to 9.4 gph, which increased the range to 168 miles while still holding back a 10% reserve.
