Mid-size family cruisers have always been a popular breed in the American market, and with so many to choose from its often difficult to tell one from another. Chaparrals Signature 350 stands out, however, thanks to her above-average finish and innovative helm layout. Chaparral has always built good boats and the 350 is certainly no exception. Constructed on a beamy modified-V hull, the cherrywood interior of this Signature is one of the most luxurious to be found in a boat her size. In a departure from the norm, a pocket door separates the forward berth from the salona privacy feature of genuine value to most cruisers. The galley is also well designed with plenty of counter space, and the aft cabin is very spacious with a dinette and privacy door. The 350s elevated helm platform, with its U-shaped settee and double-wide helm seat, is unique. Additional features include a walk-through windshield, a transom storage locker, excellent engine access, foredeck sun pad, and a cockpit wet bar. Among several sterndrive or inboard options, twin 315hp Volvo I/Os cruise in the low 20s (mid 30s top). An updated 350 Signature came out in 2010.
