Chaparral 257 SSX (2013-)

1 x 380-hp Volvo Penta V8-380



Brief Summary

Here’s a classy sportboat that not only feels great to be in, but handles extremely well. She quickly became a favorite with our test captain, and got placed at the top of the short list of boats he hated to walk away from. She has an innovative layout and some of the most eye-catching external styling in class.
