2004 GLASTRON GS 279 Your spouse's mind is made up: It's time to trade in the flashy sportboat for an overnight cruiser the whole family can enjoy.The thought of getting behind the wheel of one those floating condominiums makes you cringe. Maneuvering such a beast will be cumbersome, you assume. And the thrill you once felt catching air will surely be replaced by mind-numbing scenic cruises with the in-laws. You couldn't be more wrong. Take a gander at this 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. 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). Hauling such a load shouldn't be a problem with today's full-size tow vehicles, which boast towing capacities of 7,000 to 9,000 pounds. When we saw it sitting there at the dock, our first reaction was, "How can a boat this size perform like a runabout? The main cabin features a hanging clothes locker, V-berth/dinette combination. Through the transom hatch, you are led into 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 Bimini top. The galley has a microwave oven, a refrigerator, a sink and an alcohol/electric stove. Although, it's a bit cozy, Glastron's designers worked their magic belowdecks to make it pretty darn comfortable. 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 trailer seen here is included in the price
