Chaparral took many of the styling and design cues used on their biggest cruisers and fashioned them into the Signature 280 - a boat that many experts consider the ultimate cruiser under 30 feet on the water today. Seaworthy freeboard and a comfortable 10-foot beam means owners can chart big water destinations without concern. The innovative cockpit layout includes a mini-gallery, expansive storage, contour wrap-around seating, and a beautiful at-a-glance control center. Aft, the hideaway rear cockpit bench folds up for fishing and diving. A transom storage trunk is ideal for water toys and bulky items. An extended activity platform is included as standard equipment. The 280's Camper Canvas with it's "Bubble Tent" design has curved stainless steel poles that mean added headroom in the aft section of the boat. The dual-wide helm station has lots of room for optional Ray Marine electronics. Belowdecks, the 280 is equipped with the standard Overnight Package which includes shore power, a 50-foot cord, a microwave, a coffee maker, a hot water heater, a porcelain head, and a battery charger. The cedar-lined closets keep clothes fresh, the suspended vinyl headliner doesn't retain odors, and the premium JBL CD sound system with hideaway speakers creates the perfect ambiance.
