Chaparral re-launches at Mandurah

After a three year absence from the WA boat show scene, Chaparral will be attending this week’s Mandurah show with a range of new models and a new dealer. Chaparral will have a number of boats on display including the new entry level H2o ski/fish and sports models, Sunesta deck boat and Premium SSi sports bowriders representing a good cross section of the 44 models Chaparral offer.

Scott O’Hare from Chaparral Australia said 'We have been looking forward to re-introducing the brand to W.A buyers and particularly to show off some of our new designs; we would love to have had some of bigger Sports Cruisers, Cuddies, SSX high performance and Xtreme wake boats on display, but we literally have sold everything in the country over the boat show season and are waiting for more stock to arrive over the next few weeks.



'The Mandurah show has a great feel about it,' says O’Hare. 'There couldn’t be a better way to kick start Chaparral again in the west than to attend this show, hopefully soak up some W.A. sun and take buyers on sea trials after the event.'

Martin Box Marine has been appointed as Chaparral’s WA dealer and has already had sales success in their first month selling 4 new boats and fielding a number of enquiries on the Chaparral range.

'We are very happy to have such a high quality and well regarded brand in our line up,' says Chris Box. 'Chaparral build boats designed for saltwater use, with high freeboard, deep V hulls, proper deck drainage, 316 grade stainless fittings and tinned wiring just for starters,' he said.

'These are serious boats and after nearly 40 years in the boat business it takes something special to impress us; Chaparral seem to do that every time we unwrap a new model!



'I think WA buyers have had enough at looking at the same old designs that have been doing the rounds for years and many have been burned by grey imports', says Chris Box; 'Chaparral offer brand new designs, with more efficient hulls, better layouts, new construction materials & techniques and the best warranties in the business; it is obvious from the second you step on board a Chaparral that you are looking at a superior product.'

Chaparral has been building sports boats for 48 years and has a solid reputation worldwide for quality, innovation and performance.

Chaparral will be on display on stands 11 and 12 at the Club Marine Mandurah Boat Show from Friday the 12th to Sunday the 14th of October. www.mandurahboatshow.com.au

Fractional Ownership of Superyachts - revisited
“He knows the Aman junkie kind of crowd like no other. If there’s anyone who can do this, it’s Zecha.” “In Asia, people are starting to look at yachting, but not in the same way as the Russians in the 90s with those massive mansions at sea. Asians want the exclusivity, privacy and security without breaking the bank. We know the rich Asian millennials from Hong Kong, China and Southeast Asia are starting to buy yachts this size from Feadship but... 'What do I do with it now?”

The Darwinism of Boat Shows
Maslow's Hierarchy afloat My father owned a boat before he owned a car. My first boating trip was on board a converted Chinese junk named The Three Coins. My clearly brave mother allowed my father to take us all out for the day onto Hong Kong Harbour. I was 10 days old. On that day, a small part of my father’s passion for the sea and everything boating passed to me.
