Miss Chaparral

The Chaparral Signature 330 is as popular for its deluxe amenities as it is for easy single-handed operation and sharp lines.

The Chaparral Signature 330 has plenty of space to claim as your own, but Jessica’s favorite place is the plush sun pad on the foredeck: “I could lie out there all day.” Jessica felt right at home on the 330 — her lifelong boating experience was apparent, and her preference for the Chaparral was founded on careful observation of boats in its class.

Belowdecks, a teak and holly sole combined with a finely crafted wood dinette table adds romantic warmth to the roomy salon. Opposite the galley, a second raised settee served by an ample table accommodates more crew. The aft stateroom pampers captain and partner with a double berth, TV and private entry to the head with shower. If that’s not cool enough, the 16,000 Btu standard airconditioner makes it so.

Designed for ease of operation thanks to joystick docking using either MerCruiser or Volvo Penta propulsion, plus an anchor windlass, the 330 is a cinch to operate single-handedly. The forward-facing radar arch and integrated sun top shade the spacious cockpit. The only added feature recommended by Jessica? “I’d get the gas grill for the cockpit. There’s nothing better than a cookout.”


Seasoned boater Jessica raved about her blue snakeskin print White Sands shipwrecked Noemi bikini. “I loved the material and the way the top tied,” she says. “It was unique — that’s what sold me!” Jessica was also taken by Pink Shell’s full-service spa. “I could’ve spent an entire day being pampered there.”
