I couldn't find anything on a 270 sunsport. They have a 240 and 290, but no 270. I can't really recommend anything to you at this point, since I don't know exactly what you're looking to get out of boating down here. If your only fishing will be tossing a rod off the back, then any boat will work. If more serious, then you might consider a walk-around cuddy to give you more fishing flexibility. Overnights?? A small cabin can get pretty tight if staying aboard for a weekend. Lots of guests aboard? You will have to sacrifice cabin space for extra cockpit/entertaining space. A full head is nice to have if you will be out for a whole day and/or night. Pump-outs are free down here (and you get 5% off gas if you get one!!).
Summary: there is no perfect boat

I used Don Eiler of Eiler Marine Enterprises in Punta Gorda. He did a thorough job for me.

I've heard him recommended before. We have a lot of boaters here, and many buy and sell their boats all the time. I'd recommend getting it surveyed too, especially if you are buying one that is used.
