Brief Summary

With the introduction of its 243 VRX, Chaparral now has six jet boats in its lineup ranging from 20’ to 24’ (6.10 m to 7.31 m). This largest version is naturally our favorite as she’s not only the roomiest of the series, but her size lends her to longer trips while straying from landlocked or protected waters. Her Chaparral DNA means that she takes waves with the same agility as the sterndrive and outboard models. At the dock, she’s extraordinarily maneuverable.
