Manufacturer Provided Description

The Chaparral Signature 27 is the choice of young upscale families and veteran boaters alike. She features a soft ride in swells, fuel efficient performance, ease of operation, common sense layout, versatility and well engineered appointments. The three-tier instrument panel has a woodgrain finish and precision Teleflex gauges with stainless bezels. The topside dinette is elevated to provide a panoramic 360-degree view around the boat. The helm has a flip-up bucket seat which is ideal for stand-up or sit-down operation.
In the cabin, twin deck hatches, opening side windows and a white sliding cabin door keep the mood bright and airy. The sound system is mounted at the entryway for easy access. Reading lights, screened opening side windows, plush backrest cushions and Scotchguarded fabrics highlight a main cabin area that does double duty as a dinette or full-sized V-berth. The galley is conveniently laid out with a pressure-water sink, alcohol stove and a refrigerator. The private head has a light, porcelain toilet, sink and three large storage compartments with sliding black plexiglass doors. A true bluewater cruiser, the 27 is built with AME 4000 resin, XL plywood and balsa core construction. Across the Signature series, user-friendly helm stations feature non-glare dashboards with attractive woodgrain. Signature dash consoles have plenty of legroom and built-in drinkholders. All gauges are backlit and the tech comes standard with a built-in hour meter. All instruments are surrounded by stainless steel bezels for a polished look. Located in the dash, the power plug provides convenient access to the 12-V power system, to activate a cellular phone or other electronics. Chaparral uses individual circuit breakers for each switch on the dash. Clearly identified for quick access, each circuit breaker is fitted with a rubber waterproof jacket to help protect onboard electrical systems from the harsh marine environment. Behind the dashboard, all Chaparral wiring is color-coded, routed, secured and properly channeled.
Water-resistant speakers are strategically positioned throughout the boat for optimum clarity and stereo separation. Ergonomic helm seats feature a new flip-up front cushion so the Signature cruiser can be comfortably piloted seated or standing. One-piece, heavy-duty stainless windshield supports maintain rigidity far better than aluminum or plastic braces that can break over time.
Galleys are designed for easy meal preparation at the dock or underway. Signatures are fitted with drapes that include stitched white fabric linings for a neater look and more privacy. Lined drapes hang true, hold pleats longer, are easier to retract and help minimize light.
The doors are framed and flush mounted, which eliminates rattles and creates smooth, custom lines. The shorepower panel comes standard with AC gauges, which allows voltage received from any shorepower source to be monitored. A DC gauge is standard on the Signature 27. Chrome-over-brass through-hull fittings resist potential cracking better than standard plastic fittings and enhance the boats exterior appearance. Chaparrals cleats, running lights, bow - stern eyes, bow rails and ski tow eyes are high-quality 316L stainless steel so they wont corrode.
