It'll Make Your Blood Boil

Our new top of the line 243 VRX jet rates as one of the finest sport boats ever introduced in Chaparral's 50 year history. The boat is that special. Twin engine power excites and delights. Buyers can select from twin 200 or 250 Rotax 4-TEC ECT engine options. No matter how you dial in the power, when the throttle goes down you'll enjoy G-forces rarely experienced on the water. Throttle response is right now. Control, particularly in demanding turns, is pin-point accurate. Weekends will be a non-stop party on the water. U-shaped seating says "welcome aboard." Extensive storage space keeps everything tidy. An enclosed head is a welcome plus on long-distance jaunts. The standard high-tech dash can be upgraded with a new optional 6.5" Medallion color touch screen panel. The boldest graphics in the jet boat world are even more striking when they stretch across the boat's 24' centerline. A standard black or white Folding Arch Tower adds the perfect high performance accent. One thing is certain...nobody will doubt that you're in a Chaparral.

We Thought Of Everything

...Including A Trailer

When we say hassle free we mean it. That's why Chaparral's No Haggle, Real Deal pricing includes a trailer. Both 20-footers (single-axle) along with the 22 and 24-footers (dual-axle) come standard with disc brakes. All of the trailer feature a swing-away tongue with folding jack, submersible LED lights, a winch stand and side guides.* Optional aluminum rims are available for all models. You can also upgrade the standard black powder-coated trailer to aluminum on all models. Optional spare tire kits are available for both wheel and trailer choices.

We Back What We Build

How can we prove we build the world's finest boats with nothing but premium quality components? Chaparral's Limited Lifetime Hull Warranty sends a clear signal we do it right and stand behind the boats we build. Chaparral owners take to the water with the confidence of knowing their investment is well protected. Chaparral's warranty also has provisions for transferring coverage and includes limited cockpit upholstery, canvas, components, gelcoat and blister protection.
