With the 196 SSi, Chaparral attacks the family bow rider market with anything but the status quo. We took a completely different tact when it comes to bow design, windshield contour, cockpit width and transom styling. The pay off is a breakaway 196 that strikes a decisive balance between gutsy performance, innovative engineering and well thought out features. Clearly, no other sub-20-foot bow rider has as much storage space, legroom or a 9-passenger capacity plate. Where the fiberglass meets the water, our fine-tuned Extended V-Plane bottom design is enhanced with Kevlar reinforcement for a silky smooth ride.
