Does anyone own a 307 with twins yet?

Recommended Posts

I know I was kidding. As far as the 307 goes, it's already obsolete. Four Winns came out with the H290 that blows that thing away, even has a cuddy. Fully optioned with twin 380's it's almost 40k cheaper.

That's a really sweet looking boat. So it's around 110K deer?

Always nice to have a cabin and bow seating. Would've been very sweet if the 307 came with a cabin.

Word on the street is around 2009 they totally revised their wiring department. The new boats are good now. I'm shocked the 307 does not have a cabin, what a waste. It's not like it doesn't have the room.

My thoughts exactly. It's a lot of boat for no cabin, seems like a missed opportunity. It would make me seriously consider it, for sure.

Bowrider/Cuddy Hybrids are the latest trend of 2014. Why Chaparral isn't on this list just cements their policy of having boat designs that are 10 years behind the pack.

Well, Chaparral does have the 327. And she's a mighty beauty!

This is true and it's beautiful, but why couldn't they do that with the 307 is what I'm wondering.

Agreed....that Four Winns looks like someone's backyard restore project, all the square bunks...really? :)

I've always been a fan of the Ebbtide 2600/2700. It's an amazing design built by a company that has no idea how to style a boat's cushions. Too bad.

I had an Ebbtide 2100 prior to purchasing my Chap. LOVED that boat. It was sleek and quick and great quality. I considered the 2600 but finding a dealer is next to impossible. More like totally impossible to find any of them to actually look at and climb on. That was my main reason for looking at Chap. But I always really liked the Ebbtides.

The Four Winns are actually looking very much like the Cobalts with the square lines and all square cushions. Not my thing at all!! I like sleek and curvy. In boat design too!!:)

Am I the only person seeing all the front end wasted by the extremely sloped back bows & sterns ? Like there is really not much more cockpit area between a older 19' boat & a new style 30' ish boat. The additional 10 ' are lost to the offshore racing look.

I really need to visit some dealers. But I am happy with my older cruiser.

I was on the 307 in the Ozark's, it had a 8.2 HO in it. Salesman said it was about 20k cheaper than twin 300 mags. An 8400# boat with a single in it. It was marketed to the slow cruiser group, stated it wound make 40 mph easy. Ideal boat for the Ozark's big enough to cut threw to waves small enough to park just about anywhere.

But I'd opt for twins you never want to be the last one to the next bar :drink-buddy:

Also was on the Formula 290, 310 & 350.

If and when I grow-up and settle down on one Lake I'd opt for one of these (290,310,307)

I only make 65 a year. None of these boats are for me lol. If and when I win the lotto I'd be happy with a horizon 290 unless Chap makes aa hybrid that size.
