Take a gander at the Glastron GS 279 Sport Cruiser, a 27 foot, 5 inch midcabin model that combines the amenities needed for overnight accommodations with the fast planing, impressive speed and handling of a runabout.
Better yet, the GS 279 is trailerable. This vessel comes with a double axel trailer. The boat measures a highway-friendly 102 inches in beam and weighs in at a trim 5,375 pounds (equipped with a 5.7L GL Volvo Penta stern drive).
The GS 279 is the largest of Glastron’s Sport Cruiser Series, which also includes 22 and 24 foot models.
Through the transom hatch, we find a spacious cockpit, designed to be proportionately larger than the cabin, because, most owners spend the majority of their cruising time entertaining. The one-level fiberglass floor has seating for up to nine people, including a dual helm chair/rear-facing seat that folds down into a sun lounge. There’s also a removable transom settee and a portside chaise lounge.
The captain’s instrument panel includes all the usual gauges, plus switches for the bilge pump, blower, navigation/anchor lights, panel lights, interior lights and horn. Standard topside amenities include a wet bar with a sink and icebox, and a full cabin cover.
The main cabin features a hanging clothes locker, V-berth/dinette combination, courtesy lights and an Audiovox four-speaker CD audio system. The head offers a fiberglass shower stall, a sink, a china head and a hot water system. The galley has a microwave oven, a refrigerator, a sink and an alcohol/electric stove.
