Memories of microwave brownies, Disney movie nights in the forward berth with Mom and Dad, the onboard board game bin, hours of UNO, and countless marina boat friends pretty much sums up a decade of our boating life with kids.

That’s why models like the new Crownline 270 CR are popular.

As part of the brand’s Cruisers line, the 270 CR offers great livability onboard. A well-appointed cabin with a galley, custom countertops, a ceramic-top electric stove, a fridge and more makes weekending so liveable. Standard features like air conditioning and heat, the newest digital high-tech monitors, an aluminum arch with Bimini top, a fully appointed head compartment and a dockside water receptacle ensure that the boat is well-equipped from the get-go.

“The 270 CR is the perfect pocket cruiser to sleep a family of four and head out of the home port for a weekend getaway, or a great on-water condo,” says Hall’s Sport Center’s Hayden Hall.

It’s a trailerable cabin cruiser, so bring it to your favorite lake or body of water. A beautiful cockpit arrangement features a power swing-back lounge to catch all the sun in the stern, or throw on the bow cushion and catch the sun from the bow. A power radar arch, dual Garmin screens and a windlass anchor — these are all standard features that are usually a pricey option!

“Only a few manufacturers make cabin cruisers under 30 feet, however, none with as many standard options and features as the 270 CR does,” Hall adds.

Sterndrive power is still a popular propulsion choice on the Great Lakes. Owners seem to like the unobstructed full swim platform. From watching the kids splash in the water to sitting on the aft bench to toast one of those lingering northern sunsets, the seating arrangement is meant to bring you together for quality time and family conversations, all bundled in the luxuries of home.
