2015 Chaparral 223 Vortex VRX

North Wales, United Kingdom


Chaparral broke away from its conventional ski/family image when the company teamed with BRP to bring out its first jet-powered bowrider, the Vortex VR range. The boats were designed to fill a number of criteria; they were to carry on the Chaparral traditions of comfort and build quality, while taking the company forward into the realms of modern, innovative board sports like wake boarding and wake surfing. The 223 Vortex VRX designation is the top-of-the-line board sports boat that features ballast tanks on either side as well as in the bow and Chaparral’s Aerial Surf Platform (ASP) that earned the National Marine Manufacturer's Association Innovation Award in the U.S. This technology means that you can ‘customise’ your wake to suit the style of surfing or boarding that you want to do. All this technology is controlled by a touch screen in the centre of the dash which is the ‘brains’ of the boat. Called Intelligent Throttle Control (ITC), the Rotax system is certainly high tech at its best. It provides different modes for different uses of the boat. Ski Mode provides pre-programmed acceleration curves so anyone in the family can be an expert tow sports driver. Eco Mode dials in the most efficient cruising speed, taking the guess work of maximising fuel economy. While Docking Mode re-scales the throttle for precise manoeuvrability in tight docking situations. This particular Chaparral 223 Vortex VRX looks to be in excellent condition, having only had light use. If you're looking for a watersports boat then look no further - this is a fantastic piece of kit! These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
