Large bowriders are for people who like to go first class when they go boating and not be cramped when inviting a gang of friends aboard. Also, it takes a fairly large boat -- and a commensurate amount of horsepower -- to handle the weight of 7-10 people aboard and still have decent performance. There is no magic about it. Where the "magic" comes in is in the styling, design, overall look, and finish work. That's what makes the heart go pitter-pat. Sea Ray's 270 SLX is a prime example of a large bowrider that is built to provide a spacious floorplan, good performance and fit-and-finish that is synonymous with Sea Ray.
