Chaparral Introduces 280 OSX and 257 SSX Outboard at the Miami International Boat Show


Building on a legacy of innovative and new products, Chaparral is pleased to introduce the 280 OSX and the 257 SSX OB at the Miami International Boat Show from Feb. 13-17.

“Every feature on the newest models is designed with innovation and comfort in mind while keeping the eye-catching styling, exceptional storage space, amazing ride comfort and the quality that Chaparral makes standard in every model,” said Buck Pegg, Founder. “No matter where life’s adventures take you, you’ll be glad you chose Chaparral.”

Creating an entirely new class of boats, the Outboard Sport Luxury (OSX) is a blend of sport boat combined with the functionality of a center console with outboard power. The dynamic oversized helm seat system in the 280 OSX offers comfort for long-range cruises and dockside entertaining. Moving aft seating on the 280 OSX utilizes Chaparral's new Vista View lounge that can change position to allow full length lounging in the aft position. This, along with the dual-position helm seat, gives the 280 OSX one of the most innovative cockpit interiors available.

The 257 SSX Outboard features a large bow forward with an open seating arrangement at the stern. The convertible sun lounge can be set up in 2 configurations. The all-new electric folding tower is a popular option. The interior of the 257 SSX was designed with an open concept atmosphere. The perimeter seating has luxurious contoured upholstery lines around the cockpit with storage beneath. Stereo speakers, stainless beverage holders and grab rails are concealed but still easily accessible. On the port side, an L-shaped settee can also accommodate a cockpit table 

All Chaparral boats come equipped and ready for action; however, there are a number of upgrade options and premium packages available. For more information and pricing, please visit
