||1999 Chaparral 260 Signature, 26 feet
Bravo 3 Drive
Overall a great Cabin Cruiser, great fuel economy.
Needs nothing. Ready to go. A lot of time and money spent so you don't have to, just keep her maintained and she'll last you for years to come.
Engine and Drive run perfect, no noises, no leaks, no problems. Runs like new
Ive upgraded to a bigger boat. I've put in a lot of work to have her running like new. I used only quality parts and good equipment did not cheap out for cheap aftermarket parts.
The 26 foot boat is a perfect starter boat, big enough to enjoy and small enough to easily drive and dock. My friend's 26 foot SeaRay Sundancer cabin feels a bit smaller.
