Hot on the heels of a stunning Sydney Boat Show performance, Chaparral Australia has taken out Top International Dealer at the 47th Chaparral Dealer Conference held on Table Lake in Branson, Missouri.

Over 200 dealers attended the four day conference, with 41 International dealers making the trip from around the globe.
'We are incredibly honoured to have even been in the top five International dealers, let alone taking out top spot' says Chaparral Australia’s Scott O’Hare, 'the award is primarily based on sales but also other criteria such as marketing and commitment to the brand, so it is nice to have achieved some recognition for our hard work.'

'We have had an amazing few weeks with a huge number of people over our award winning stand at the Sydney show, followed by 46 groups test driving our Chaparrals on the harbour, selling nearly 20 boats as a result and then picking up an international achievement award; we are exhausted but loving it!'



Chaparral Australia is the importer for the brand in Australia and New Zealand and support a network of dealers around the country. Chaparral Boats range from 18 to 42 feet with award winning bow riders, sports cabins, wake boats and sports cruisers.

The Chaparral Sydney Boat Show display won an award for excellence and included the world release of Chaparral’s new 225 Sports Cabin, the first time in the company’s 47 year history that a new model has been released outside of the U.S. The new 327SSx and 330 Cruiser also featured in Sydney in a Southern Hemisphere debut.
