Chaparral and Robalo Boats are all set for next week’s Gold Coast International Marine Expo with an impressive line up of boats covering the entire range.
With boats on display including cruisers, big bow riders, entry level H2o sport, ski/fish models and Robalo centre consoles, there is something for everyone.
'The feature boat for us this year is the amazing 327SSx Bowrider,' says Dylan Lopez from Sirocco Marine North, Chaparral’s QLD dealer. 'This is the perfect Gold Coast fun machine' he says. 'Licensed for 17 passengers, powered by twin 380 HP Mercruisers pushing her up to 60 MPH, overnight accommodation and legendary Chaparral quality; what more could you want!'
SSX 327 HERO
The saltwater tough range of sports boats on offer from Chaparral are well suited to the QLD boating lifestyle, with leading designs and use of industry best materials.
The H2o range has been a phenomenon in Australia with over 100 boats ordered since their 2012 debut, the clever Ski/Fish and feature packed Sports models selling in equal numbers. Features such as high freeboard, a deeper and wider bow for a safer & dryer ride in rough water, 316 grade stainless fittings throughout, loom wrapped tinned wire with triple sealed connectors, battery isolators and float switches on bilge pumps have set the H2o range apart in the entry level stakes.
'We are also very happy to have a 310 sports cruiser on show this year', says Lopez; 'we are keen for our stunning cruisers to get the exposure they deserve; they truly are a step above in every way and we know that our local customers will agree.'
Added to the Chaparral line up is this year’s hot debutant brand, Robalo; with a range of 16 outboard models developed for serious offshore fishing. These well thought out and super tough boats are at the next level of smart, but at realistic prices. Built right alongside Chaparral you just know that the quality and innovation will be spot on and are definitely not to be missed!
Now in their 50th year Chaparral and Robalo have a solid reputation worldwide for quality, innovation and performance; they have over 45 models in the range from 18 to 42 feet and offer a complete dealer network across Australia.
