Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

This is a MUST SEE boat. This beautiful Chaparral is the perfect summer weekend getaway. Enjoy sipping on your favorite cocktail listing to some Buffet with your friends in the roomy cockpit/helm. While underway you can make it to your destination in no time at all with her quick plaining ability.

Below you'll find plenty of room to eat your meal in the cool a.c. or warm heat. You have 2 saloon tables which can easily seat 4 adults. The forward table colapses to a v-berth and the aft cabin is perfect for a great nights sleep.

Seller is willing to negotiate w/ a trade (bowrider about 25')
