Chaparral 223 Vortex VR


Blast off with the new Chaparral 223 VR. Designed to put some zip into your weekends, the 223 redefines what a family-minded jet boat is all about. Power options include twin 150, 200 or 250-4-TEC ECT 1.5L Rotax engines. Bred with innovative styling and unmatched quality, the 223 features a super-sized cockpit layout. U-shaped seating is highlighted by a clever Oasis lounge that features a reversible seat-back for either forward or aft viewing. We can't emphasize enough that Chaparral quality is what really sets the 223 apart. Luxury appointments include a hand-stitched helm brow, stainless steel appointments and more storage space than you ever thought possible in a 22-foot boat. A powder coated tandem axle trailer is part of the 223's No Haggle, Real Deal price.
