New 227ssx owner

Recommended Posts

I’m just about to pick up our new (used) 227ssx. For the last 3 years we enjoyed our first boat, a Regal 1900. Used it so much we decided to step up in size and class and I loved the Chaparral brand and layout. We were between a 257ssx and the 227ssx. I had found a used 2013 257 model with 90hrs, and a used 2017 227 model with 25 hrs. Both fully loaded with all the options. I opted for the 227 on the basis of it having the folding arch (the 257 had an arch but it was fixed); it being a practically new boat still under warranty; and it being almost 20k cheaper to buy used than the 257.

I did love the bigger look of the 257, and the rear loungers. But the 227 layout with the way the passenger seat folds to create a lounge really opens up possibilities when you have more friends on the boat.  Hopefully it’s the right decision. 

Any 227 ssx owners out there that regret not going for the 257?
