Captain’s Report: Chaparral 277 SSX (2013)
Chaparral may have opened the doors to some interesting innovations on its 277 SSX but we think the real story is in her performance and handling. This model seems to show that the molds have been tweaked for the better as she turns as if on rails showing no chine walk or tendency to fall off the turn. And we’re just getting warmed up.
Her relatively high freeboard helps keep occupants dry and her 22.5-degree deadrise at the transom will make the ride almost as smooth as possible in a rough chop at speed.
