Additional Information

The 297 SSX features the classic great look of a contoured bow, with beautiful flowing lines that will grab the attention and the respect of those around you. Chaparral went to great lengths to create a powerful and agile boat that carves through the water with minimal noise. Designed with an open cockpit to provide plenty of space to entertain, the 297 SSX features all of the amenities that you need for spending long summer days on the water. It’s the perfect blend of sportboat, luxury day cruiser, and family sized bowrider. Its list of standard features are unmatched in the industry, and perfectly executed as only Chaparral can do it. For instance, the upholstery is hand stitched in house to assure you the the fit and finish that only comes from craftsmen with years of experience, and the award winning “Extended V-Plane” hull will provide you with unmatched ride, performance, and impressive handling, regardless of where your boating takes you.

To keep you and your boat connected, Chaparral designed the 297 SSX ergonomic “command station” with the most up to date, advanced technology available in the industry. Check out the dual touch screen “Glass Dash” helm…its functions include navigation, engine management, a full complement of gauges that can be customized for your personal preference, and the switches are “one touch” controlled and back-lit for easy identification.

A starboard side walk-thru makes for easy boarding from the large activity platform, and a hinged gate adds security and peace of mind with little ones on board. Once you enter the large cockpit, you’ll find oversized “double wide” bucket seats for the captain & first mate. At the stern there’s a large seating area, along with a large powered multi-position chaise lounge/sundeck with “back to back” seating. For entertaining, there’s an Igloo “carry on” cooler that stores under the starboard side bench seat, along with a table that can be used either in the cockpit or bow area. To help you extend your time on the water, you’ll find a large enclosed head compartment with vanity and an opening port light.

At 29’ long, and sporting a 9’ beam, you will find plenty of room for all of your family, and friends, so if a large bowrider is in your future, your future starts here!

You can pay more for a new boat, but why would you want to?
