216 SSi - BoatTest.com (2011)

The Ultimate In Family Values

Turn low-key weekends into exciting adventures with a 216 SSi that delivers Chaparral innovation at its family bowrider best. Wide Tech™ engineering provides a smooth, dry and confident ride with more space in the bow. Stainless steel hardware, premium vinyl and molded recessed side panels add a touch of class and are engineered to last. A large Bimini, front windscreen, full height windshield and a hinged bow door combine for all season comfort. Time-tested Quad Radial lamination with Kevlar® reinforcement keeps the strength up and the weight down.

Everywhere you look there's cargo space including convenient lockers under the bow seats. Upfront you'll find one of two onboard ice chests. The bow ice chest is insulated and drains overboard.

LOW SPEED STABILITY

Our hull design utilizes an extended running surface, allowing the "v-plane" to continue aft of the transom. This creates superior stability under nearly all driving conditions.

EFFICIENT FUEL ECONOMY

Less time at the pump means more time in the water and more money for bait. The hydro-lift provides a quick plane time, creating one of the most fuel efficient boats in their class.
