Chaparral Boats have an impressive line up earmarked for the upcoming Sanctuary Cove Boat Show including two stunning Queensland debuts.
Following up from last year where Chaparral had the biggest display at the show, the 2013 display will include two new boats from the SSX range that have not ventured North before, with the 257SSx bowrider and the 285SSx Sports Cabin taking centre stage.
Scott O’Hare from Chaparral Australia said 'we had such a great show last year with outstanding sales across the range and we especially enjoyed re-introducing our boats to discerning Queensland buyers; this year we have an exciting line-up with the brilliant 327SSx bowrider, the two new SSX models, Xtreme wake boat, Sunesta deck boat, premium bowriders, the ever popular 225SSi sports cabin and of course our fabulous entry level H2o sports and ski/fish models'.
'Over the last few years Chaparral have undertaken an unprecedented R&D program resulting in 25 models across the range with all new designs from the hull up', says O’Hare; 'being in such a strong financial position, with no debt and nearly 50 years of innovative and progressive industry leadership, Chaparral have well and truly come of age and now hold number one position in the U.S. for 18 to 35 foot sport boats', he added. 'We always enjoy Sanctuary Cove; we love the village atmosphere, catching up with industry colleagues and our current owners, but mostly we enjoy the test drives after the show; particularly last year when we went out on the Broadwater in 12 different boats 34 times in one week! It doesn’t get any better than that.'
Scott O'Hare and Dani Limback take out the title, Dealer of the Year.
Chaparral has a solid reputation worldwide for quality, innovation and performance; they have over 30 sports boat models in the range from 18 to 42 feet and offer a complete dealer network across Australia.
Chaparral is represented in Queensland by Sirocco Marine North and can be found at SCIBS on stand MH6 on Masthead Way, within the main village at Sanctuary Cove.
