2018 246 SSi


Exceeding Expectations

Some may say we're obsessed in our pursuit of perfection, but frankly, we can't imagine building family bowriders any other way. Case in point is the 246 SSi. Our SSi flagship puts a premium on seating and on-the-water entertaining. With engine options from 280 to 350 horsepower, enjoy the freedom of a go-anywhere, do-anything family bowrider that is efficient and responsive. Loaded with standard equipment, the 246 also lets you select from an options list that includes snap-in carpet, a bow filler cushion and a velocity tower.


 

Chaparral's Ordinary is Extraordinary


Anchor Locker

Bow Filler Cushion

Bow Seating

Bow Storage

Chaise lounge bow seats are relaxing while cruising. Wraparound stainless steel grab rails are mounted topside for easy access while pulling up to a dock. Stainless steel drink holders and stereo speakers are recessed. Add a bow filler cushion to create the perfect place to catch some sun. You won't find a boat in this size range with more bow storage capacity. Enormous compartments under both seats feature molded drainage channels to prevent water penetration. Forward, the integrated ice chest is the biggest in our SSi Series. An overboard drain minimizes the problem of melted ice clean-up at day's end.

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.
