For Families On The Move

If you didn't believe in love at first sight before, with the introduction of the incredible 223 VRX you certainly will now. Chaparral put all the savvy we've learned about boat building in the last 50 years into the 223 VRX. The end result is a masterful family jet boat that's priced right, built right and exactly right for you. Twin engine performance speeds you to new levels of excitement. Talk about an adrenaline rush. Heart-pounding acceleration. On demand power. Efficient cruise control. Eye-watering top-end. Onboard, you'll bask in the spaciousness of a bow area that allows you to sit, dine or recline. At the opposite end of the spectrum, the best-in-class swim platform area is designed for the kids to blast off no matter what water sport is on the agenda. A huge 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. What distinguishes the VRX? Standard equipment extras include an arch tower and a wide assortment of sun-kissed color options that are certainly not for the faint of heart.
