CHAPARRAL LAUNCHES TWO NEW MODELS AT MELBOURNE BOAT SHOW
The new Chaparral Vortex series are jetboats powered by Rotax engines.

A new Chaparral jetboat and a Robalo bay boat are the standout displays in a 13-strong new boat line up for Chaparral Australia at the Melbourne Boat Show.

The Chaparral 203 Vortex VRX Jet boat is the first of three new jet-powered models by Chaparral featuring Rotax engines.

Scott O’Hare from Chaparral Australia said he was deeply impressed with the new jetboat after he drove the 203 Vortex. "It handles better, it is quieter and has a better layout than any jetboat I’ve ever seen," he said.

Chaparral Australia also imports American-made Robalo boats and has a new category of bass boats which has been called the "Cayman" series on its Melbourne debut. The Robalo R206 Cayman is designed to handle rough bay and inshore coastal cruising, acting as a fish boat while also doubling as a dayboat.

The Chaparral lineup included Xtreme saltwater wakeboats, premium SSi bowriders, H20 entry-level sports and ski/fish bowriders and a large selection of Robalo, centre-console, walkaround and crossover models.
