Chaparral’s 300 OSX exudes luxury while defying convention, with a delightfully unique layout for entertaining and cruising. An ultra-wide central command console includes twin standard Simrad NSS9 Evo3 multifunction displays and accessory panels. The deluxe wheel, binnacle, and optional joystick control for twin Yamaha F300 outboards are set into a rich padded dash and protected by a full-width windshield. The deep-V hull is designed to handle with precision and slice smoothly through rough seas.
The double-wide captain’s chair is complemented by a single co-pilot seat to starboard. Both offer flip-up bolsters and armrests. When not needed for piloting, the seat base cleverly pivots to starboard to serve as cockpit seating. The Vista View lounge is also innovative; it can change from seating to lounge to sun pad with the push of a button. Add a table for snacks and drinks. You might consider the optional wet bar abaft the helm chairs, but this negates the ability to rotate the seats.
A starboard transom gate offers easy access to the walk-across swim platform and outboards, and the starboard-side door permits safe boarding. To access bilge rigging, the Vista View base hinges upward on a motorized strut.
The portside walkway leads to the bow, where you’ll find an inviting lounger for two or more guests. It features an angled backrest and fold-down armrests. Add optional filler cushions to create a sun pad.
Back on the helm deck, slide open the starboard-side pocket door and step down to a surprisingly roomy cabin replete with a fiberglass liner, wood cabinetry, teak flooring, portlight, vanity, sink, freshwater faucet, and a flushing marine privy that cleverly slides into a cabinet and out of view when not in use. A cozy forward berth will accommodate two adults for overnighting.
The 300 OSX’s hardtop melds seamlessly with the sleek lines of the boat, and incorporates a sunroof and telescoping SureShade to protect and cool guests on sunny, sultry days. It also features overhead LED lighting to illuminate the interior at night. To set the mood, the 300 OSX comes standard with a six-speaker, SiriusXM-ready audio system with Bluetooth connectivity.
