Chaparral put all the knowledge we've learned about boat building in the last 50 years into the 223 VRX. The end result is a family jet boat that's priced right, built right and exactly right for you. Twin engine performance creates a quick to plane, agile and solid ride. An open concept bow area allows you to sit, dine or recline. At the opposite end of the spectrum, swim platform area is designed for the kids to enjoy no matter what water sport is on the agenda. An integrated platform features hinged aft-facing seats, a slip-resistant non-skid mat surface and a three step boarding ladder that stows in a hideaway compartment. Standard equipment includes an arch tower and a wide assortment of color options that offer a wide variety of options.
