Falling in love takes less than a minute when you step onboard the remarkable 287 SSX. The difference between Chaparral and rivals is crystal clear the instant you grab the wheel and roll the throttle forward. Award winning Extended V-Plane performance lets you cruise the shoreline or pursue distant horizons in a big water sportboat that mixes excitement with high class elegance. Inside, if you thought the bowrider area was spacious, the enormous U-shaped cockpit layout is even more inviting. Chaparral's high tech dash exudes power and sophistication. The instrument panel comes to life against a black panel display and signals our passion for advanced technology and innovative luxury. Attention to detail is so exact, even the windshield cap, ski pylon and drink holders are stainless steel. Chaparral's arsenal of performance upgrades includes standard trim tabs and optional Quick and Quiet exhaust.
