2015 Chaparral 243 VRX Jet in Pasco, Washington

Stock #130988

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Only 12 hours on this freshwater gem, the Chaparral 243 Vortex is the ultimate jet boat! Everything comes with the boat that is pictured, trailer included. The boat holds up to 12 and it handles like a dream!

With the twin 250-hp Rotax 4-TEC 250 ECT and the Lateral Thrust Steering System the boat handles like a dream! Whether at idle or high speeds, this is a well-mannered boat.

The 243 VRX puts out enough low power thrust to track nice and straight at minimum speeds. Her lateral thrust control allows her to make idle speed turns in her own length, a convenient feature even away from the dock!

From Boat Test:

With the introduction of its 243 VRX, Chaparral now has six jet boats in its lineup ranging from 20' to 24' (6.10 m to 7.31 m). This largest version is naturally our favorite as she's not only the roomiest of the series, but her size lends her to longer trips while straying from landlocked or protected waters. Her Chaparral DNA means that she takes waves with the same agility as the sterndrive and outboard models. At the dock, she's extraordinarily maneuverable.

Helm Layout:

The helm is fabricated in gray tones that remove any concern for glare or adverse reflections in the windshield. A vinyl dash is stitched into place with contrast color stitching that is color matched to the hull scheme, in this instance, green UV resistant thread is contrasting the gray dash. This is a twin-engine boat with dual start/stop buttons just above the ignition key to the left of the helm. However, both engines are controlled from a single control at the helm. This means that there's no putting one engine forward and the other in reverse to pivot the boat. The lateral thrust steering takes care of that nicely.

Vortex Instrument Control Panel:

With Medallion 6.5" color touchscreen display has a lot to offer:
GPS
Cruise Mode - Allows for setting the desired cruise speed and maximum speed.
Ski Mode - Allows for a controlled launch with up to 5 pre-set acceleration curves and user defined target speed. Once underway, it accurately maintains tow speed with a GPS based controller.
Eco Mode - Optimizes engine efficiency by limiting engine torque.
Docking Mode - Re-scales the throttle for increased resolution and maneuverability at the dock.
Navigation Display - A moving map display comes pre-loaded with a Navionics SD card for the country of choice.

Cockpit:

Seating is something the 243 VRX has no shortage of. She can accommodate 12 people thanks to her U-shaped seating that wraps around the cockpit and the fact that the cockpit is brought out right to the hull sides for more room. The port seat has a flip back to allow it to convert from forward facing to aft facing. The observer seat is reversible by moving the seatback fore and aft. This allows it to serve as either a forward facing, or aft facing seat. Underneath the bench seats are storage to one side and a carry-on cooler to the other. The addition of a pedestal table turns the cockpit into a great place for mid-day snacks or after cruise cocktails.

Bow:

The bow has the usual seating arrangement of twin V-seats with storage underneath. Looking closer shows how Chaparral goes a little further in its execution of the seating arrangement. The seats are hinged from the rear so there's more access to the storage underneath. The vinyl is 38-millimeters thick with a 10-millimeter topcoat for added protection. All vinyl is stitched on with contrast colored thread color matched to the hull color scheme. Chaparral tells us that the multi-density foam is 40% thicker than the competition and there's a mildew inhibitor inside. Speakers are recessed between cushions so they don't hit against the back when sitting. Both the speaker grilles and the drink holders are stainless steel. Flip-up armrests are standard.

Stern:

The transom didn't get left out of the seating consideration. A pair of doublewide aft-facing seats makes a great place to relax anytime the 243 isn't underway. It also forms a natural staging area for getting boards on before entering the water. With the side-mount pedestal in place the stern becomes even more inviting. The cushions lift to reveal space underneath that Chaparral says is additional storage, but we beg to differ.

Amenities:

Anchor/Ladder: One of the things that Chaparral has managed to accomplish is finding a way to combine the anchor locker with an anchor and a reboarding ladder. In most cases, this is an either/or proposition but here they live together. The 243 VRX has both an anchor and reboarding ladder under the forward hatch. The hatch is held open with friction hinges, the anchor is held in position with keepers to both sides, the navigation light is flush mounted and reverses when in use and the bow is notched to accommodate the ladder and anchor rode. With the hatch closed, the non-skid treatment allows for a comfortable re-entry from the ladder and a launching off point for entering the water.

Sport Arch:

The sport arch is included in the VRX package and it's a pretty classy setup. This one is powder-coated but the coating is textured so it's got more of an ability to maintain a grip with wet hands. The sides of the arch, right at head-level from the seated positions, is padded... something we've not seen before. The sport arch includes a padded area right at head level, and it's color-matched to the boat's color scheme. The Bimini has the usual hardware running around the perimeter, but the tension supports, which are usually right over the heads of the operator and observer, are instead mounted to the center. In the middle of the Bimini is a padded area that eliminates flapping and reduces chafe. Lastly, the towpoint at the top has a mount to accommodate a Go-Pro camera and the video feed can be watched at the helm via Bluetooth.
