Recommended Posts

I purchased my first boat last night 96 2330, it is supper nice cosmetically, but needs engine work, I am hoping to tap into your wealth of knowledge to get me in the water this spring

Hi

I've bought a 2008 CHAPARRAL 264 Sunesta. Looked through the pros and cons on the forum and later on the CHAPARRAL Sunesta official site in the section Boats. It's rather cheap in comparison. Trying to redesign it and make it look better, it's trully a monster by the engine, but looks strange.

We took it out twice this weekend, it runs great, nice and smooth. But hac a lack of power. Rpms won't get over 3600 and it tops out at 35 mph, it feels good but I thought it would perform a little better than this. I installed a Jasper 350 supposed to be 260 hp, any help would be appreciated
