Manufacturer Provided Description

The Chaparral Sunesta 263 blends sportboat styling with the features and cockpit space that only the ultimate deckboat can provide. Its an unbeatable combination. The Extended V-Plane hull ensures top-notch performance. A center walk-through transom door means easy access to a U-shaped cockpit thats designed to accomodate plenty of family and friends.

Overall Description

The 263 Sunesta has a semicircular cockpit seating design that provides plenty of seating for up to 12 guests and makes a great conversation pit. The seat cushions are made from heavy, comfortable 40-ounce vinyl, stitched with weatherproof Gore-Tex thread, and stretched over high-density foam backed by breathable Kelron plastic panels
Passengers can grab a drink from one of the five built-in drink holders and the entertainment center, aft of the captains chair, has a counter, a 12-volt blender plug, lift-up trash access, a cooler, and a small sink. A removable table is also included.
Located in the port console, the 41 head has a molded-nonslip sole with a large drain, a small shelf with sink, a stainless-steel grabrail, and a screened port. A portable toilet comes standard.
On the water, the 263 Sunesta pops onto plane in three seconds with very little bowrise, and its deeper V (compared to most deckboats) gives it a nice bite in turns and a comfortable ride in small wind chop.
There is an enormous amount of storage throughout the vessel.
