Manufacturer Provided Description

It is no coincidence that the Chaparral Signature 280 has design similarities with it's 350 and 300 sisterships. Chaparral has incorporated everything learned while engineering the next generation Signature Series and added a few twists along the way. The end result may well be the best cruiser under 30 feet on the water today. Seaworthy freeboard creates a dry ride and extends the boat's capabilities into big water destinations. The radar arch accents a cockpit layout that includes a mini galley, hideaway storage, contour wrap-around seating, and a beautiful at-a-glance control center.
