Escape, great question. We are looking at the same boat. Here is our issue: In the bow, there is not much hull distance between the seats and the top of the bow. We like everything about the boat EXCEPT this fact. If you sit in a Cobalt 262, you will see what I mean....there just seems to be more protection for the bikini folks. IMHO!!
The boat is very smooth riding and offers a lot of entertaining space and storage. The only complaint any of my customers had was the ease of acess to the trash can. (It's under the cooler which is under the wet bar.) I sell Cobalts now but the quality on the Sea Ray is much better than most; other than Cobalt. After that it basically boils down to the layout and needs of the customer.
Try www.searayowners.com and find Roy he has one as well and equally loves it. Sea Ray is the only boat builder to have made a modified deck boat bow rider hybrid. No stubby noses for flat hulls there. I love my 220SD but in a couple more years I will be moving up to the 270SD.

Just FYI, they don't make the 270 SD anymore. But there are nice used ones out there! I think mine (2001) is the last year they made them. And yes, we love the 270 SD!!! Right in the middle of the 260 and 280, DAAAAAAAAAAAAaa!
