Polar 27 Walkaround First Glance

The Polar 2700 qualifies as pretty luxurious for a 27-foot walkaround. But just as big custom sport-fishing  boats don't let luxury compromise fishability, neither does the Polar. A large bait-prep station abuts the freshwater washdown and sink. Built into the helm seat you'll find a 50-gallon lighted baitwell and a storage compartment for removable tackle trays. A great and functional feature allows you to easily adjust the level of water inside the baitwell. Two 8-foot-long insulated fish boxes with macerators hide under the deck, as does capacity for 200 gallons of fuel.

Accommodations consist of two comfortable Pullman-style berths that in the down position double as seat backs for the salon settees. Behind the bunks hides copious storage space. Rounding out the accommodations is a stand-up head with shower.

The Polar 2700 holds 200 gallons of fuel, and amazingly, despite its roominess, it can still run quite nicely at 43 mph with a pair of 150-hp outboards. Lenco electric trim tabs come standard as do a transom door, heavy stainless-steel  pop-up anchor cleat, flush-mount hinges, in-gunwale rod holders and a low-profile bow rail. Each Polar boat is built with all-fiberglass construction for superb longevity.

In case you have an aversion to a plain white hull, Polar offers colors such as Flag Blue, Sky Blue, Fighting Lady Yellow, Sea Raider Red and Polar Platinum.
