The inspiration for outfitting the Chaparral Signature 240comes from the top-of-the-line Signature 350. "Keep the options list to a minimum by including everything owners ever want or need as standard equipment !"
Amazingly, even with all the extras, the 240 is price-competitive against rivals. Recessed trim tabs and convenient dock access to the battery on / off controls and main circuit breakers show the attention to detail. Aft, the walk-through transom leads to an activity platform that is ideal for water sports and includes a three-step stainless steel telescopic ladder, ample storage and a freshwater wash-down.
