2017 243 Vortex VRX

Twin 1.5L Rotax 4-TEC 250 ECT

Our new top of the line 243 VRX jet rates as one of the finest sport boats ever introduced in Chaparral's 50 year history. The boat is that special. Twin engine power excites and delights. Buyers can select from twin 200 or 250 Rotax 4-TEC ECT engine options. No matter how you dial in the power, when the throttle goes down you'll enjoy G-forces rarely experienced on the water. Throttle response is right now. Control, particularly in demanding turns, is pin-point accurate. Weekends will be a non-stop party on the water. U-shaped seating says "welcome aboard." Extensive storage space keeps everything tidy. An enclosed head is a welcome plus on long-distance jaunts. The standard high-tech dash can be upgraded with a new optional 6.5" Medallion color touch screen panel. The boldest graphics in the jet boat world are even more striking when they stretch across the boat's 24' centerline. A standard black or white Folding Arch Tower adds the perfect high performance accent. One thing is certain...nobody will doubt that you're in a Chaparral.
