257 SSX SE

257 SSX SE

257 SSX SE Boat

Engineered Like No Other

All new for 2015, the 257 SE offers the same award-winning performance, styling and quality as our runaway best-selling 257 SSX with a completely redesigned “side-entry” cockpit layout. More affordable than its 257 sistership, the new SE layout features modified L-shaped cockpit seating with an adjacent bench. The cockpit feels big, wide and roomy. Aft, the 257’s dual lounge seats are replaced in the SE by a more conventional full-width sun pad that converts to a chaise. Under the cushion there’s storage space for equipment and towels that is easily accessible from the platform.

We Back What We Build

How can we prove we build the world’s finest boats with nothing but premium quality components? Chaparral’s Limited Lifetime Hull Warranty sends a clear signal we do it right and stand behind the boats we build. Chaparral owners take to the water with the confidence of knowing their investment is well protected. Chaparral’s warranty also has provisions for transferring coverage and includes limited cockpit upholstery, canvas, components, gelcoat and blister protection. Your Chaparral dealer can provide specific warranty details.

Customer Satisfaction That Matches The Quality of Our Boats

Chaparral’s dealer network is trained to provide first-rate customer service. The process starts by building the boats right. Then your Chaparral dealer takes over. Our network is dedicated to making both the buying process and regular maintenance effortless. Then, when the day comes, they’ll handle your trade as you step up. Chaparral has earned the prestigious NMMA CSI award for excellence in customer satisfaction seven years in a row, and we have won these awards for every category of boat we make, a claim that most rivals cannot make.
