Brief Summary

There are deckboats, and there are bowriders, and Chaparral's 224 Sunesta blurs the line somewhat between the two. Her Wide Tech bow has a pickle-fork design which creates more room forward, but beneath the rail there is much more freeboard than found on the typical deckboat, and she's all V-bottom with an 18-degree deadrise at the transom. There is no need to question her watersports abilities as can be seen in the image above -- her stern is open and ready for action.
