Brief Summary

We recently tested the 270 SLX on Lake Tellico in Tennessee on a cool spring day. By the looks of things the team at Sea Ray has been busy ratcheting up the eye-appeal and substance of the new 270 SLX. This boat clearly has the style and looks, but does she have the bones?

Fuel consumption (gallons per hour) measured with Floscan digital fuel-flow meter or by on-board factory-installed diagnostic instruments. Range is based on 90% of published fuel capacity. Sound levels determined using Radio Shack digital decibel meter on A scale. 68 dBA is the level of normal conversation. Time to plane is measured from start of acceleration to formation of rooster tail behind boat.
