Priced To Get Your Attention

The game changer 203 VR was the first in a new line of Vortex jet boats from Chaparral that also includes 223 and 243 models. Unique in every way, the 203 VR crafts a sleek, classy profile with dry-riding freeboard and Chaparral quality to speed jet boat design to a whole new level of innovation. Up front, the adult-sized bow area comes standard with a filler cushion and storage under all the seats. Ultra roomy U-shaped cockpit seating features a clever multi-position Oasis port lounge and a swivel captain's bucket seat with a flip-up bolster. The 203 VR's standard wide band gelcoat is accented with a sport graphic and is available in Biscayne Blue, Black and Fire Red. A color-matched interior is highlighted with detailed embroidered logos. Under the hideaway engine hatch cover, a supercharged Rotax power plant and jet propulsion drivetrain deliver exciting low-end pulling power, efficient cruise and plenty of excitement on top-end. A Raptor-coated folding arch tower is optional with board racks also available as an added extra. Available with Chaparral's No Haggle, Real Deal pricing, the 203 VR also comes standard with a black powder coated trailer that features 15" tires, a folding tongue jack and submersible LED lights.
