1984 Chaparral 278 XLC Cruiser in West Palm Beach, Florida

Stock #150162

Located in West Palm Beach Florida This 26 foot 6-inch Chaparral 278 XLC is a one of a kind express cruiser.

Chaparral boat history goes back to 1965 when the company was founded by William"Buck" Pegg in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The company's bellwether boat at the time was the 15-foot tri-hull with a sticker price of $675.

By 2000, Chaparral had grown to become the fourth-largest independent sport boat builder in the United States.

Chaparral currently builds a wide range of bow riders, performance boats, deck boats, and family fishing boats.

The 278 XLC was for a time the largest boat in the Chaparral fleet. Also a very popular model, A mid-cabin cruiser that was still trailerable with an 8-foot 2-inch beam.

The current owners of this boat realized the great bones and features of this boat and decided to make it better.

Powered by twin Mercruiser 190 HP gas engines that were completely rebuilt in 2011. This Chaparral has plenty of power to get this boat to a cruising speed of 27 mph and a top speed of upwards of 35mph.

This Cruiser also has a totally rebuilt 5 kw Westerbeke generator to power anything you need when you are away from shore.

If you can't stand the heat there is a Zypher 16,000 BTU AC centrally ducted throughout the cabin. This will ensure a cool place to hang out and sleep when you want to get-away.

One very amazing feature of this boat is the watermaker. Yes, this Mid cabin trailerable cruiser has a LWM Series Modular Water Maker. That is capable of producing 6 gallons per hour into a 20 gallon water tank.

For waste instead of a black tank you have that can stink up your boat. The owners of this boat have thought of everything! Yes, this boat has a Lectra San waste treatment system. This system sanitizes every time and gets rid of the waste.

There is also a brand new state of the art Garmin Ecomap CHIRP 94SV. The transducer installed on the transom.

Included in the sale of this boat is a Hudson Bay Dinghy with a 15hp Mercury gas engine. The dinghy also attaches to the swim platform so you can pull it wherever you go.

Of course, this is a trailerable boat and there is a trailer included. The trailer is a 2003 Continental tandem axle trailer with 2 spare tires.

The sellers have many additional accessories that they will include that make the sale of this boat truly a boat you need to put your eyes on. There is even an additional Mercruiser 470 engine block they will throw in.

For a full grasp of this one of a kind deal and what is really included please look at all the photos and watch the incredible video.

For a showing or to place an offer call or text the number below or email the email address. Or call your personal representative.

Dinghy included: Hudson Bay

Information On Condition

This boat is in Very good condition for its age. The boat is stored indoors so has no sun damage.

The boat has a little bit of rub rail damage and a slight ding on the starboard side corner of the swim platform but really nothing for a boat that has been used as much as the sellers have used it over the years.

The boat has so many upgrades!

Watermaker makes this such a great boat to have weekends away. Then the Custom Texalean sun shield lets air pass through but not the sun!

Trailer the boat to a location and save time then go on an adventure!

The boat was put into a Freshwater lake and run after every use. Makes it like it was used in fresh water only

Engines totally rebuilt in 2011 Westerbeke generator totally rebuilt

all maintenance done on schedule
