The second of six jet boat launches, the 223 VRX is every bit the Chaparral we expected her to be. She seats 10 in comfort, and as a watersports platform she’s sure to thrill. Acceleration was brisk, but it was her handling that convinced us that she’s pure Chaparral. No chinewalk in turns, clean wake penetration, and a solid feel. Top speed during testing ...52.9 mph.
