EYE CATCHING

VRX

Unique in every way, the 203 VR crafts a sleek, classy profile with dry-riding freeboard and Chaparral quality to bring jet boat design to a whole new level of innovation. Ultra roomy U-shaped cockpit seating features a clever multi-position Oasis port lounge and a swivel captain's bucket seat with a flip-up bolster. The 203 VR's standard wide band gelcoat is accented with a sport graphic and is available in Biscayne Blue, Black and Fire Red. A color-matched interior is highlighted with detailed embroidered logos. Under the hideaway engine hatch cover, a supercharged Rotax power plant and jet propulsion drivetrain deliver exciting low-end pulling power, efficient cruise and plenty of excitement on top-end. A folding arch tower is optional with board racks also available as an added extra. Available with Chaparral's Real Deal pricing, the 203 VR also comes standard with a black powder coated trailer that features 15" tires, a folding tongue jack and submersible LED lights.

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.
