Forward Drive gives you versatility.
The Forward Drive is a new propulsion system that leverages Volvo Penta's forward facing technology to deliver amazing results.

The Forward Drive is a new propulsion system that leverages Volvo Penta’s forward facing technology to deliver amazing results. This innovative system provides versatility, added passenger comfort, efficiency, flexible trim and a host of performance benefits. It is the most versatile propulsion system available.

Versatility
Forward Drive gives you versatility, enhancing just about every use of your boat, from cruising, to performance, to all types of water sports.

Comfort
Because the Forward Drive is under the boat, there is less noise and exhaust, meaning more comfort.

Efficiency
The Duoprop produces better bite, acceleration and speed in a more efficient, smooth way, that also increases fuel economy.

Flexibility
As opposed to a fixed inboard, the Forward Drive’s variable trim easily adjusts upward to enhance watersports action, cruising or docking.

Performance
Variable trim angles provide the right thrust for leisure cruising as well as top speeds, which are higher than an inboard. Speeding to plane is much faster than conventional inboards too. Turns are tighter and faster thanks to directional thrust.

INNOVATION

On a boat equipped with Surf Gate.
The hydraulically operated Malibu Surf Gate transforms watersport wakes into the most surfable and customizable waves possible.

The 246 SSi Surf edition is equipped with the patented, hydraulically operated Malibu Surf Gate™ which transforms watersport wakes into the most surfable and customizable waves possible. On a boat equipped with Surf Gate, there’s no need for passengers to pile up and lean the boat to affect the wave.

Endless Fun
Spend more time on the water with the ability to transfer from side-to-side without having to change ballast weight.

User Friendly
Fun for the whole family - control the direction of the wake easily from the touch screen controls or from the optional wristband.

Competition Level Wake
Unlike other stern drive companies that only use a forward facing drive, the Malibu Surf Gate™ allows Chaparral to produce competition level surf wakes.
