Featuring a fully enclosed helm station, the new 270 Hard Top from World Class Catamarans shares the smooth ride and stability of the popular 270 Express Cabin thanks to the patented Vectorflo hull. The 270 HT was created by adding a fiberglass hardtop, tempered-glass windshield and center pop-up glass and sliding side panels closed in with a rear curtain made of Sunbrella with Eisenglass windows. The enclosure and cabin offer protection from the elements and excellent cross ventilation, along with a full six feet of cabin headroom, a queen-sized berth with storage for rods and gear, and a porcelain pump-out head.
The cockpit includes dual captain’s chairs, a 300-quart insulated aft fishbox, a 25-gallon bait well, a tackle station, raw-water washdown, a fresh water shower, wraparound cockpit coaming pads and a molded-in toe rail. Other features include a self-bailing cockpit, stainless through-hulls, stainless hatch hardware and lifting rams, and dual-ram Teleflex hydraulic steering with Kevlar hoses. The 270 HT is built utilizing advanced composite materials and construction processes, all backed by a ten-year transferable, limited hull warranty. Typically powered with twin 225-hp Honda four-strokes, the 270 HT is also available with a pair of the new Volvo D3 160-hp diesel sterndrives.
