I'm looking at a 2006 Chaparral 255 SSi. It has approximately 615 hours on it. The seller indicates it was well maintained each season and a freshwater only boat. I spoke to the mechanic I use and he told me that model engine and drive, properly maintained is good for at least 2000 hours. He also said they often have charter boats with Mercs that they don't even consider tired until 4000 hours. What do all of you think? Just trying to avoid shelling out some deer on a boat that the engine is on it's way out. Thanks in advance.
