Manufacturer Provided Description

Imagine a sportdeck so advanced nothing in its class can match its features, style and quality. A boat so advanced it ran away with Boat-of-the-Year honors the first time it hit thewater. The exceptional 284 Sunesta is by far the most advanced sport deck Chaparral has ever built. From the multi-purpose bow area, to the entertainment-minded cockpit, to the most functional transom design on the water, everything that makes Sunesta world class gets bigger and better on the 284. One look at the equipment list and you'll see we've left nothing to chance. Key options on other Sunestas that are standard on the 284 include a Power Slide aft seat, Premium Package, docking lights, a Garmin 530C GPS, dual batteries, trim tabs, a side mount table and a stereo upgrade. In the head, teak flooring and the cabinet with sink are also standard.

Boat Information

Chaparral is widely known for building high end boats that also add great looks to the package. They are more expensive than many similar boats, but that means owning one carries along with it a hefty dose of pride of ownership, because they’re not for everyone. Even a casual look will tell you that the 284 Sunesta was not thrown together, but when we looked closer we found some surprises. When we were taking our initial look around the hull of our test boat, we counted four innovative factors, and we weren’t even onboard yet. This is one boat we recommend you see for yourself.
