Chaparral is expanding and improving its well-appointed SSi series of runabouts, reinforcing the company’s commitment to recruiting new boaters by offering a well-engineered, well-built series of boats at a moderate price. The sterndrive-powered 21 SSi proved that ethos during our day running it.
The SSi brings all of the impressive luxury for which Chaparral is known: a glossy gelcoat, generous use of polished stainless steel in hardware such as grab rails, hinges, latches and drains, and more. And the SSi matches its style with performance.
While many boatbuilders have abandoned the middle-class boater, instead focusing on the established, well-heeled boater, Chaparral’s commitment to the SSi series speaks of its commitment to recruiting new boaters with value grounded in high-quality style and good performance.
