I am shopping for a used boat, my first boat, and many people have recommended chaparrals to me. My price range is pretty low, under $8k for sure so my options are somewhat limited. I was trying to stay year 2000+ but have started to see a few mid to late 90's Chaparrals, mainly 1930 ss models that have caught my eye. What are your thoughts on those, good boats, too old, good deal for the right price? I have my eye on one right now that is a 1996 with a 5.7L in it. I still haven't seen it in person yet, am waiting for additional pics from the seller. -thanks
Here's the dilemma: Do we buy the brand new 246 SSI or the used '07 236 SSX? '07 has the 5.7L GXI with 135 hours (seldom used for the age) and 246 has the 5.7L 350 Mag Bravo 3. With all the dealer incentives right now, the cost difference is about . Any help on finding someone to inspect the used boat? It would be a sight unseen purchase which makes me nervous. How much to expect for cost of inspection? Seriously leaning towards new but wouldn't mind putting an extra in my pocket either. Any pros and cons you would like to share with a Newbie? Thanks in advance! Can't wait to join the owner
