Thread: Chapparral??

  1. #1

    Question Chapparral??

    Don,t throw rocks at me but, I have a friend who has a marina and sells Chaparral, and he gave us a really great deal on a 285 SSi the one with the 9.3 beam Like a Formula 280SS.

    What do you guy,s think of the Quality of these boats?

    I remember years ago they made a Villian , This is just a big hang out boat, anyone have one?

    This quote from Chaparral should say it all:

    'Amongst our 22 awards we've earned eight Boat of the Year trophies and are the only company to hold the distinction of winning Powerboat's top prize an unprecedented three years in a row when our 285, 230 and 220 SSi models won back-to-back-to-back awards.'

    Sounds like you made a great choice. I bet you can't wait for spring. You can see some of the Chaparral reviews on Powerboat's web-site.

    A good friend of mine has the 28' bowrider - 280ssi, I think? He loves the boat, and can't say enough good about Chaparral. This boat makes either his 2nd or 3rd Chaparral now.
    I've driven this one, and I really like the boat myself. The twin 350 mags in his move it pretty well.

    My parents have a 235 and really enjoy it. It's been problem free. I think they build a good boat.

    Thumbs up

    From what I have seen, Chaparral makes a great boat. Their upholstery work is top notch. Good choice!

    I've had both a Villain II and a Villain IV. Had the Villain IV for 10 years with no major problems.
