"Willpower" is a beautiful, extremely well cared for 280 Signature. She is powered by twin 265 hp GXI Volvos with newly rebuilt Outdrives. Her cabin is gorgeous and includes a 5 kw Kohler generator and air conditioning. She is equipped with a roomy engine compartment. 

Chaparral’s 280 Signature series achieves a truly unique combination of livability and performance with its contemporary styling and a long list of features. Great for day use, entertaining, overnight stays and even extended cruising. The economical Volvo Penta’s sip gas and deliver 1 mile per gallon fuel economy. The cabin arrangement emphasizes spaciousness and organization. The forward V-Berth doubles as a lovely sitting area for entertaining while the guest stateroom offers a large double berth and hanging locker. The head compartment includes a molded-in vanity, manual toilet and shower. The salon features a large entertainment area with lounge and on the same level is a fully equipped galley. Large aft deck has a beautiful dining table, sink, shower and seating for at least 8 adults in the cockpit. 

(It became the 290 Signature starting with the 2004 model year.)
