223 VRX Vortex (2015)



Chaparral put all the knowledge we've learned about boat building in the last 50 years into the 223 VRX. The end result is a family jet boat that's priced right, built right and exactly right for you. Twin engine performance creates a quick to plane, agile and solid ride. An open concept bow area allows you to sit, dine or recline. At the opposite end of the spectrum, swim platform area is designed for the kids to enjoy no matter what water sport is on the agenda. An integrated platform features hinged aft-facing seats, a slip-resistant non-skid mat surface and a three step boarding ladder that stows in a hideaway compartment. Standard equipment includes an arch tower and a wide assortment of color options that offer a wide variety of options.

Bow Storage

Chaparral makes anchor storage easy thanks to a dedicated compartment complete with a cradle and room for a line and chain. The forward compartment also houses a ladder that makes re-entry from any beach easy. Additionally, the forward bow cushion can be removed, creating a non-skid step during high traffic boarding. Upfront you'll enjoy adult-sized legroom and reassuring freeboard. Carry-ons stow under the seat cushions with molded drainage channels that help route water away from the storage areas. Tri-tone upholstery showcases high quality detailed stitch work.

Leave Rivals in Our Wake

Rotax Jet Engine Cutaway

(A) iTC (Intelligent Throttle Control)

The Rotax system is high technology at its best. SKI MODE provides pre-programmed acceleration curves so anyone in the family can be an expert tow sports driver. ECO MODE dials in the most efficient cruising speed, taking the guess work out of maximizing fuel economy. DOCKING MODE rescales the throttle for precise maneuverability in tight docking situations.

(B) Drive Shaft Sleeve

Helps prevent the problem of debris, tow ropes and weeds becoming entangled with the drive shaft. Rivals can only try to fix the problem after it occurs.

(C) Closed Loop Cooling

Protects the engine from harmful salt, gunk and corrosion by using clean coolant like a car. All Rotax 4-TEC engines are true saltwater engines.

(D) Lateral Thrust Control System

Directs jet thrust to either side of the transom during low speed maneuvers giving the driver pin-point control at the dock. Other systems either direct the thrust downward or use rudders, both of which are ineffective at low speeds.
