Perfect Timing. Refreshingly innovative, our new 196 SSi Wide Tech is the right boat at the right time. The mission statement was clear-cut: create the most fuel efficient, low maintenance, spacious and feature rich family bowrider under 20-feet. And oh by the way, keep the price down and the value up.... way up. Mission accomplished. Our patented Wide Tech hull design adds leg room, storage space and comfort. Featuring all-new styling, weather-resistant aluminum dash panels, Kevlar reinforcement, a cockpit drainage system and stainless steel hardware are classic Chaparral. Exciting and lively, the 196 has a splash of color on both the port and starboard helm consoles and the lockable glove box adds an MP3 jack and a 12 volt outlet. Enhance the comprehensive list of standard equiment with custom options including snap-in carpet, a platform logo mat and a wakeboard tower.
