First boat purchase engine question

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey all,

I am currently on the hunt for my first boat and came across this 2006 Chaparral 276 SSi from https://www.boattrader.com/boat/2006-chaparral-276-ssi-7422852/

 

it has pretty low engine hrs but I am not experienced in these engines or out drive.  Can anyone say yay or nay on this boat simply by looking at the stats?  Motor: 8.1 Liter Volvo OSi DuoProp
HP: 375
Outdrive: Volvo Penta 1.78 DPS-B (Installed New in 2015)

Again, I’m new to boats and welcome all advice.  I’ll be using it in salt/ brackish water.  TIA

Get a GOOD mechanical survey. All boats look good on paper. My only question would be, why did a 190 hour boat need a new out drive?  Perhaps it was a replacement of the XDP drive which would be a reasonable excuse.

That drive has been replaced from XDP to DP, not a problem there.

Just make sure the defective XDP series outdrive was replaced...
