Boat Test #1421
The best way to describe the all new Chaparral H2O 21’ Sport with an outboard is versatility, functionality, affordability and high end quality all wrapped into one.
There are two captain’s chairs with flip-up bolsters to improve your view when you are underway. To the stern is the four seat bench that spans across from port to starboard side. Under the seats is ample storage for your gear or life jackets. Mounted on either side of the back bench are large stainless steel grab rails for your guests to use as needed.
The helm meets the needs of any captain. The standard Bay Star Hydraulic Tilt Steering easily adjusts for complete comfort. There is rubber coated toggle switches on either side of the wheel.

The aft sundeck is large enough for two people to soak up some rays. The starboard portion of the sun platform lifts up with a uniquely designed stainless steel hinging system to provide easy access to the swim platform.
The swim platform has plenty of room to access either side of the motor. The stainless steel telescoping ladder is on the starboard side underneath the fiberglass hatch. It is accessible by pulling up on the stainless steel latch. Chaparral does a nice job incorporating a clean looking and well-designed motor well.
The bow area has two forward facing seats on either side of the walk through with a center cushion completing the u-shaped seating configuration. Two generous stainless steel grab rails complete the bow area. Speakers adorn either side of the bow, and an easy to access anchor locker to the front.
The folding powder-coated Velocity Arch Tower features a built in tow point, bimini top and optional fixed board racks. All it takes is the twist of two knobs to fold down the arch for easy storage or trailering.
A Yamaha 150hp 4-stroke outboard gives you precise handling and quick hole shots. It also gives a nice top end speed which is perfect for watersports or cruising the lake.
