Year: 2007

Brand: Chaparral

Model: 204 SSi

Length: 21′

This boat provided several years of ‘fast fun’. With a 350 magnum engine it was fast! Was also functional and evey well built. Had our share of repairs over time, but would buy the boat again.

Family Fun in a Chap!

By: Jeff Reese on January 16, 2023 at 12:31 pm

Year: 2019

Brand: Chaparral

Model: H2O

Length: 23′

Subtype: Runabout

Purchased: New

Full Review:

Love our 2nd Chap! Great Family boat for entertaining, dragging kids on skis/floats, cruising, going fast / going slow and just hanging out. Pluses include nice layout, dependability, quality and handling + ease of use. A few general ‘boat issues’ with wear and tear, but overall very happy and consider this Chap a part of our family! Happy Boating!
