27' Chaparral 2005 - 270 Signature - YS200157  Video is available for this item

General Description

It’s surprising what luxuries manufacturers can pack into a 27- foot boat. The Chaparral Signature 270 with high freeboard to provide standing cabin headroom, the Chaparral has a sleeping capacity of six in a floorplan that few will find cramped. With a generous 9-foot beam, Chaparral designers used the space well. The layout is similar to most boats of this type with a convertible dinette forward, U-shaped cabin dinette (also convertible), and a double berth in the aft cabin.

Galley storage is very good due to the large storage locker in the galley, and the decor is a blend of cherry joinery, designer fabrics, and vinyl wall coverings. Note that the cabin entryway is very narrow. The cockpit has wraparound seating aft and a spacious storage locker under the portside passenger seat. Additional features include a transom storage locker, walk-through windshield, and an extended swim platform. Twin 4.3L MerCruisers deliver a top speed of 34–35 knots.

Actual Condition

It was reported that the starboard engine on this Chaparral is seized. The portside is suspected to function with about 450 hours. However, it is unknown as to the cause of starboard seizing, only note mentioned from the previous owner is after winterizing and sitting for the season, it seems to have locked up and wouldn’t start this spring. Otherwise, she will need an exterior buffing and the interior seems to be in order, good condition with typical wear for her age. Check out the walk- through video provided and send in your bids!
