MIAMI — Brunswick Corp. debuted the all-new Harris pontoon V series at the Miami International Boat Show, a new center console fiberglass pontoon boat that is designed to appeal to high-end buyers.

The V270 features a unique interpretation of a center console design.

The boat comes standard with a full pumpout marine head compartment with a freshwater shower, molded-in sink, vanity compartment and stainless-steel faucet that is supported by a 24-gallon freshwater and 15-gallon blackwater tank — all recessed below deck level in the center tube.

Adjoined to the center console is a galley with a faucet, sink and a stainless steel refrigerator.

Debuting at the Miami show, the V series is shown in the only available length, the 270, and is powered by the Mercury 400R Verado.

“Simply said, the V270 is built to perfection. The V270 will make your days on the water fun and stress-free because it offers what boaters have been asking for — the stability and ease of boarding of a pontoon with the conveniences found on off-shore center console boats,” Harris president Nick Stickler said in a statement.

The double-helm seats feature slider bases and powered backrests that are designed for reversible seating configurations.

The console utilizes large touchscreen displays, chrome gauges and a built-in speaker system to improve the user experience. The aft fiberglass door serves as an additional passenger seat.

The V270 has an optional hardtop; the optional teak table converts into three pieces — a full size, a partial size or a slide-away.
