'Of course the boats themselves are the real hero’s; with such a brilliant selection of boats now numbering 44 models across the range, Chaparral have given us plenty to work with.'

Chaparral Australia have a complete dealer network servicing Australia and offer boats ranging from the new entry level H2o ski/fish and sport bowriders, SSi premium bowriders, saltwater wake boats, cuddy’s, high performance sports cruisers and the flagship 42 Premiere.
