2020 Gear Guide | Chaparral 25 Surf
For the past 55 years, Chaparral has been building some of the best boats the market has to offer. Headquartered in Nashville, GA, Chaparral is built with pride by a dedicated team of nearly 1,000 people, some of which are a second and third generation boat builders. Whether a well-seasoned employee or a brand new team member, we all share the same Mantra; Quality first, Luxury standard.
Brand new for the 2020 model year, we released our long awaited 25 Surf. Based on our popular 257 SSX, the 25 Surf helps usher luxury into the realm of surfing. By utilizing the Volvo Penta Forward Facing Drive and Malibu Surf Gates, we were able to create the ultimate surf machine while maintaining its ability to be a luxurious sport boat with all the benefits of being a stern drive.

DRY WEIGHT – 5,100 lbs

By using the Malibu Surf Gate, we are able to shape a wave without the use of massive tabs that are trying to lift the back of the boat, which means you get a better wave with less ballast. The gates are also controllable through an option Wrist Band that puts the surfer in control of their wave.
The Volvo Penta Forward Facing Drive allows you to take advantage of the efficiency and handling of a sterndrive, while placing the props forward and diverting exhaust into the water which creates a safe and perfect surfing environment.
Vista View Lounge
Chaparral’s Vista View Lounge allows you to take the party to the swim platform. In a matter of seconds, you can transform the aft bench into a rear facing lounge, turning the back of the boat into the ultimate entertainment area.
