Upfront, the anchor locker has a secure cradle and space for a line and chain.
Chaparral's Wide Tech design pays off especially in the bow, with more legroom and seating capacity than traditional V-bottom layouts.

Dry riding freeboard is a plus everywhere, but when your family is pulled up on a sandy beach and wants to transfer people and gear shoreside a four step boarding ladder makes access easy and has a sure-handed top-rung grab handle. A wide non-skid bow area is a confidence builder under foot. Upfront, the anchor locker has a secure cradle and space for a line and chain. Chaparral’s Wide Tech design pays off especially in the bow, with more legroom and seating capacity than traditional V-bottom layouts. Flow foam and Starlite composite bases combine to keep water moving through the upholstery which increases seat life. A boat load of people means a boat load of gear. Bow seat storage areas are key on a 22-footer that has more cubic feet of storage than comparably sized rivals.

Low Speed Stability
Chaparral’s 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.

Full Throttle Excitement
