Chaparral announces new outboard and surf Models

Chaparral have just introduced their latest for the 2020 model year with 3 exciting new boats now available for order in entry level,  Crossover and Surf categories.

19 Outboard Bowrider

The long awaited 19 Outboard is here, which should put smiles on a few faces. Chaparral were not prepared to just add an outboard transom to the existing 19 inboard hull as they weren’t happy with the handling and performance in testing. So, they’ve redesigned the hull to make it work and have come up with the goods.

The deck is basically the same as the inboard boat, but with added storage and still a decent swim platform set up around the motor.  Of course the DNA from the premium boats is still there with Chaparral’s salt water heritage at the forefront of all of their thinking. Available in both Sport & Ski Fish models.

Price is anticipated to start at around $75,000 for boat, motor & trailer (BMT) with a few extras, so pricing is spot-on for a boat of this calibre.

257 Surf

Complete with Malibu Surf Gate, Medallion surf computer, built in Ballast, Volvo’s forward facing drive, unique surf hull design, surf racks and graphics, the 257 Surf is now the 5th Surf boat in the 21 – 29 foot line up.

Borrowing from the 257SSx Premium sports boat, the 25 Surf does everything right. Big on volume, big on quality, big on features and especially big when it comes to the size of the surf waves.

Chaparral says that ‘real surfers surf salt’ and when you see the 257 Surf this makes sense. With all of the salt water tough design and built quality synonymous with Chaparral, their surf range offers the only legitimate surf boat ,with proven surf technology,  that is equally at home in fresh or salt water.

280 OSX

The award winning 300 OSX now has a smaller sibling with the introduction of the 280 OSX.  The twin outboard boat is a brilliant day boat that captures the true meaning of crossover.  With plenty of luxurious lounge seating throughout, deep 21 degree dead rise hull for comfortable and dry rough water cruising, big fuel capacity, side door for diving , fishing and easy marina access, small cabin with head and sink, hard top option and unique clever swing away helm seating to expand the social space – this is as versatile as it gets!

The OSX is arguably one of the best looking boats on the water and with the outboards and self draining decks, you have a low maintenance boat with plenty of performance that will happily handle living on a swing mooring over summer, but with the right motor and trailer combo is still towable.
