The Cockpit Of A Bowrider
When it comes to the area you will be spending; you want it to be not only luxurious but spacious, right? This is the boat for you. Chaparral allows for the option to have your boat with sea deck non-skid matting. On top of this convenient feature, all decking is self-draining for when you are out in harsh wakes or rinsing off your boat after a long ride. All side panels are vinyl wrapped, and up to five different color packages are available. Starting at the stern, stainless steel cup holders, handle, and speaker are all located under the padded bolster. You will find storage under the corner seat on the starboard side and port seat- inside the storage unit, you will find dedicated storage for an inflator for water floats. With an L-facing seating arrangement, you can be sure to top it off with a pedestal table mount.
Finally, you will never have to hear a loud engine that disturbs you from conversations with your guest. The 247 SSX keeps your engine covered in an insulated storage unit. Experience quieter rides this year. In the center of your deck, you will find additional room for storage. If you head up to the front, you will see an oversized bow. Chaparral knows that you want to keep the quality of your boat to a maximum. The 247 SSX keeps your feet off the seats with a hidden staircase behind your front cushion at the bow. These stairs allow an easily accessible way to get from the boat to the water.
On hot summer days, there will be hours spent riding your boat around; there will also be just as many hours, if not more, of friends and family going back and forth between the boat to the water. The full-width beam platform is a remarkable feature added to this Chaparral SSX 247. This feature allows for boarding on either side of your boat-no more waiting for one at a time for someone to board. Chaparral also does a great job of understanding an issue that some of us cannot stand-wet footprints on the seats. A wide walkway prevents this issue allowing swimmers easy passage from the water to the cockpit.
No Shortage In Storage
As previously mentioned, storage is a huge step forward in innovation with the Chaparral 247 SSX. With seating that holds up to 13 people, we can only assume that you want to get the most out of the space. Family and friends will still have plenty of extra room to lounge around while not sacrificing any space due to carry-on.
Chaparral boats do a great job of providing owners with hidden storage throughout the deck. Are drinks going to be part of your carry-on items? The 247 SSX helps keep them cool thanks to a built-in insulated cooler behind the captain’s chair. This cooler is an excellent feature for anyone wanting to bring a personal bag cooler or ice from the nearest store. Each one fits comfortably. For your passengers soaking in the view from the bow, storage is conveniently available for them as well. With a simple seat lift, you will notice a massive area for storage—significant storage areas for oversized bags or towels.
A Bowrider That Stays Cool
A nice feature that can be upgraded (as shown in the video) is the new EFX tower. You can quickly lower and raise the tower with a simple button push. With this unique, optional feature, you can easily tow your boat behind your vehicle and tuck it away in your garage effortlessly. Keeping yourself cool has just become a lot simpler.
Overall, Chaparral has gone above and beyond with the new 247 SSX. The quality of this bowrider is unmatched. Chaparral has genuinely created a perfect boat that not only provides a smooth and quiet ride but also allows for an enjoyable experience on the inside.
