Boating Review by Randy Vance, Feb. 10, 2010

Chaparral 310 Signature

The 310 Signature sports a unique and striking look and excellent use of cabin space.

By Randy Vance February 10, 2010  

For the past few model years, Chaparrals engineers have been developing their WideTech line of speedboats, capitalizing on forward space provided by proud chines married to a tri-point look at the bow. Already strong in the express cruiser lineup, Chaparral needed to fill just one gap in its lineup to complete its catalog of sporty and luxurious cruisers. Enter the 310 Signature, with that remarkable WideTech look.

On test day, we had models on board for photography and a chopper overhead, and our wind-swept open water was about as friendly as the Rocky Mountains. These were not the conditions for forcing 35 mph photo runs, yet we did them, and our crew enjoyed a comfortable though athletic ride while it smiled for the camera. That revealed more than a chart of GPS numbers and fuel flow statistics could. The 310 is built to cruise comfortably, capably and with the guts to handle crummy waters.

Later, with notebook in hand, I stepped through, over and inside the new boat, jotting observations.

For operating convenience, the helm is equipped with smoothly operating digital throttle and shift and is complete with digital instruments that give fuel-flow information to help manage the boats efficient cruise speed of 2.6 mpg at 30 mph. Getting it cranked up is easy too, because Chaparral put the battery switches and distribution panel in the same place conveniently located as you enter the cabin meaning you dont have to climb into the bilge or open a storage locker to wake up the boat.


Convenience of ownership was further addressed by offering good access to the engines I could easily reach around to the spark plugs and oil filters of both. Sea strainers are comfortably reachable, even for the optional genset. Accessing the engine compartment itself is eased by way of a power lift, a necessity on cruising boats that enjoy the benefits of lounge components and hatches molded into a single unit to optimize cockpit utility and maintenance access.

Live-aboard convenience is nicely seasoned with luxury, both in the cockpit and the cabin below. Aft cockpit seating is ample, though I prefer a starboard positioning of the cockpit galley and portside arrangement of the lounges. On the other hand, the layout nicely accommodates the portside transom boarding location something many captains prefer for aft visibility when coming alongside the dock on that side. Regardless of your preference, like us, youll be impressed by the power slide aft lounge that lies flat as a sunning station at the touch of an electric switch. Instead of copying Sea Rays popular cockpit grill station, Chaparral left the grill off the galley, opting for a stanchionmount arrangement and dedicated storage at the transom less convenient at dinnertime but also less expensive and less obtrusive when cruising, not cooking. The cabin entrance is via a molded sliding door with sliding screen. Steps to the cabin sole are easy to navigate due to their size and the placement of rails. The steps, of fine hardwood, add still another touch of elegance to the cabin. Complementary wood tones are found throughout in the high-gloss dinette table and galley cabinetry. Though the cabin sole is covered in faux teak and holly, it is natural-looking, warm and inviting so much so that we had to kneel down to spot the faux.

There is an aft cabin, as in most cruisers this size, but its first function is to enjoy DVDs on the 20-inch flat-panel TV while reclining in the conversation-pit seats. A pr

    With twin 260hp MerCruiser V8s, the 310 can race to 35kts, with a champagne cruise of 23kts. With twin 260hp MerCruiser V8s, the 310 can race to 35kts, with a champagne cruise of 23kts. Hatch in the T-top and opening windscreen centre-pane, along with inbuilt steps in the helm bulkhead and handrails assist in going forward to the bow. For al fresco dining, just clip the table with handy cupholders to the sidedeck. Cockpits starboardside wetbar maximises well the available space. Courtesy of the Wide Tech hull is a great feeling of space below in fact eight can sit on the lounge that meanders around the saloon. Galley is minimalist but has all the essentials. Nicely moulded bathroom will be an easy-clean propostion.    


Chaparrals 310 Signature is either a big-little boat or a small cruiser. Whichever way you look at it, this sporty conveyance will suit a wide range of activities for families looking for something extra.

The Chaparral 310 Signature has an overall length of 9.45m and a 3.05m beam, taking it out of the trailerable category but still small enough to be handled by entry-level boaties with a waterfront property or access to a marina or mooring.

In this part of the world Chaparral isn't among the mainstream brands, being more of a boutique name with a reputation for higher build-quality and innovative design. Much better known in its home country Chaparral claims to be the world's largest independent builder of sterndrive powerboats, with a list of industry awards spanning its 50-year history and a production run in that time of more than 300,000 boats.

Chaparral 310 Signature

This style of midrange sportscruiser is generally considered a great dayboat and entertainer but the owners of the 310 we tested saw potential for the boat as a coastal cruiser and embarked on an extended voyage over several months.



The full-width boarding platform is 0.75m wide and has a removable stainless steel safety rail in the centre, leaving clear sections each side. A recessed swimladder is built into the starboard platform floor and there is a storage locker and rear-facing seat on the transom that is a pleasant place to relax. This seat converts to a sunpad over the enginebox at the flick of a switch and lifts to reveal a monster storage locker for water toys, fenders and lines.

A small step up to the cockpit deck is where I found front and rear-facing lounges to starboard forming a roomy space that converts to a dinette with the addition of a table that fixes to the sidedeck. More storage is found under each lounge and there is a step to the non-slip gunwale for boarding from the side.


Access to the bow is via stairs moulded into the bulkhead and through the windscreen. An opening hatch in the hardtop means crew won't be banging their head every time they go forward to the sunpad on the front deck.

Three steps lead down to the cabin from the cockpit through a sliding door. The wide, timber steps blend with the teak floor and dark cabinets and complement the rich cream leather upholstery for a quality, classic feel below.

It's in the cabin that the benefit of the Wide Tech hull is most obvious; it's a great feeling of space, especially for a 31-footer. Up to eight people could cosy around the deep-gloss mahogany dining table on the lounge that meanders around the cabin aft of the bed.

To port is a minimalist galley with granite benchtop, sink with stainless steel mixer, 240V cooktop, small microwave and a 12/240V Isotherm fridge. Appliances can run from shorepower or two house batteries connected to an inverter. Opening ports over the galley and to starboard, as well as a hatch in the roof, give good airflow, while the generous 1.9m of
