Our 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. Chaparral makes anchor storage easy thanks to a dedicated compartment complete with a cradle and room for a line and chain. The forward compartment also houses a ladder that makes re-entry from any beach super easy. Additionally, the forward bow cushion can be removed, creating a huge non-skid step during high traffic boarding. Upfront you'll enjoy adult-sized legroom and reassuring freeboard. Carry-ons stow under the seat cushions with molded drainage channels that help route water away from the storage areas. Plush tri-tone upholstery showcases detailed stitch work. It doesn't get any better than this. The 243 VRX features a huge low profile swim platform that is big on extras and even bigger when it comes to the fun factor. A three step telescopic boarding ladder easily handles adult weights and features a top-rung grab handle. A protective swim platform mat is standard. Platform-mounted stereo speakers are a stroke of brilliance because there's always so much going on in the water. Stainless steel drink holders and grab handles surround the side-by-side aft facing seats which have storage underneath.
