New Chapparral 307 Bowrider

Chaparral has released its new 307 SSx Bowrider, a sister ship to its award-winning 327SSx bowrider.

The Chaparral 307 SSx is available in twin or single-engine configurations, with Chaparral describing the boat’s handling and top speeds as “more akin to its smaller SSi stablemates.”

Scott O’Hare from Chaparral Australia was one of the first people in the world to drive the new boat.

“The first thing that struck me was the crisp, clean lines of the boat. The interior was very modern with no wasted space with a simple, practical layout,” he said.

The trim was gorgeous; it oozed style and class and felt very rich. The best bit though was the performance. This boat was quick, quiet and soft in the choppy conditions, with minimal bow rise, accurate handling and very dry.

The new boat does not include accommodation and although muted is (not yet) available with a hardtop like the Chaparral 327SSx.
