Weekends will on the water will never be the same. The cockpit features open concept U-shaped seating. Extensive storage space keeps everything tidy. An enclosed head is a welcome plus on long-distance cruises. The standard dash can be upgraded with a new optional 7" Medallion color touch screen panel. The bold graphics 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.
