Throttle Down And Experience
The Extended V-Plane Difference

 

LOW SPEED STABILITY

Our hull design utilizes an extended running surface, allowing the "v-plane" to continue aft of the transom. This creates superior stability under nearly all driving conditions.

 

EFFICIENT FUEL ECONOMY

Less time at the pump means more time in the water and more money for bait. The hydro-lift provides a quick plane time, creating one of the most fuel efficient boats in their class.

 

FEATHER SOFT RIDE

A fishing trip feels like a day cruise when you're out on a Chaparral. Engineered by the best for the worst of conditions, you will feel the difference that hydro-lift provides.

PRECISE CORNERING AGILITY

The extended running surface coupled with the tight aft hull corners delivers everything you need when you're taking sharp turns. These hulls drive like a luxury automobile.

 

DRY RIDING FREEBOARD

Enjoy dry comfort aboard any Chaparral due to our high freeboard. Feel secure in the deep cockpits. You'll be amazed at the size, all while maintaining a sleek profile.

 

FULL THROTTLE EXCITEMENT

With a forward keel designed to cut through the water like a knife, high-octane pleasure awaits. Quick acceleration delivers the ride of a lifetime each time you leave the dock.
