Chaparral's reputation for quality, innovation and performance has gone from strength to strength since its humble beginnings in a small fibreglass workshop in Florida back in 1965. With over 50 years of boat building experience Chaparral Boats is arguably the best managed and most highly regarded production sport boat builders in the world today. Chaparral offers an award winning line up of boats including the SSI, SSX, Vortex, SunCoast, OSX and Surf models. From 19 to 35 feet, with sterndrives, outboards and jet power, no matter where you take to the water, Chaparral is your boat of choice.
Quality is everywhere in Chaparral's DNA. Much of a Chaparral is built by hand by the finest craftsman in the world. Chaparral's Quad Radial Lamination System features Kevlar and is time-tested to deliver the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio. Chaparral spare no expense in selecting materials. Chaparral Boats are all built salt water tough with only the best materials available. All gelcoat, vinyl and stainless steel hardware used is top-tier. Chaparral's Limited Lifetime Hull Warranty sends a clear signal that they do it right and stand behind the boats they build. Chaparral owners take to the water with the confidence of knowing their investment is well protected.
Chaparral Boats perform like no other on the water due to their Extended V-Plane running surface. Chaparral's Extended V-Plane running surface is a no-nonsense approach to hull design. Unlike rivals that come up as much as two feet short in the critical area where the fibreglass meets the water, Extended V-Plane stretches full length. Especially in demanding water conditions, a longer and wider running surface means smoother, more controlled performance. Extended V-Plane moves the propulsion point, where the sterndrive or outboard meets the transom, forward of the aft running surface. Consequently, every inch of fibreglass you paid for is at work delivering the best possible ride. The added length acts like trim tabs, allowing Chaparral boats to stay on the plane at lower speeds with improved fuel economy. Extended V-Plane has the power to move you.
