Chaparral’s wildly popular SSi Series is the talk of the water with boats from 19”-23. These boats are “equipped, not stripped” with quality features you’ve come to expect from Chaparral, like a molded fiberglass dash, cockpit drainage system, composite seat bases, and stainless steel hardware to mention a few…all of which adds to long term durability and better resale.
Chaparral’s exclusive “Extended V-Plane” hull utilizes an extended “in water” running surface creating a superior ride and better stability under nearly all conditions, along with the comfort and ride comparable to a larger boat. This highly awarded hull also provides a quicker planning time, and then keeps your boat on plane at a much lower RPM creating one of the most fuel efficient boats in their class…translating into less time at the gas dock, and more money in your pocket. Another place you’ll notice the benefits derived from this hull design is in the high freeboard…..you sit deeper in the cockpit, giving you a drier, safer ride.
With the standard Mercruiser 4.5 liter MPI (200 hp) V-6 engine, you get crisp low-end, controlled mid-range and exciting full throttle performance. The 21 SSi Sport has wraparound seat backs in the bow, an anchor locker, stainless steel grab handles, recessed stereo speakers and a 12 passanger capacity. There is plenty of room for cargo, with under-seat compartments, floor and console storage as well as an ice chest built into the rear seat base. New for ’21 is the “tri-position lounge” with flip up side and rear cushions for walk-thru boarding, lounging, and an aft facing seat, perfect for staying involved with in water activities.
The SSi gauges provide a wealth of information at a glance. The aluminum faced, fog resistant gauges are accented with stainless steel bezels and are easily legible in all kinds of lighting conditions. The dash is also equipped with easy-access circuit breakers, no fumbling with fuses…simply reset the breaker and you are back in business!
In a world where we’re taught that price dictates quality, the Chaparral SSi series of boats offer a breath of fresh air!
