Chaparral Boats will be making a big splash this month as part of the Pier 33 display at the Grand Rapids Boat Show at DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. Boat show attendees will even have an opportunity to register for a chance to win a new Vortex Jet Boat from Chaparral.

Pier 33 will display Vortex Jet Boats by Chaparral, with an eye-opening selection including the Vortex 203 VR, 223 VRX and 243 VRX. All three models will be making their Grand Rapids debut at this event.

“Chaparral is very suddenly the hottest thing going in jet drive runabouts. These Vortex models are exciting, comfortable, top performers and include the same luxury features boaters have become accustomed to in Chaparral’s stern drive runabouts” said Pier 33 General Manager Tighe Curran.

Earlier this year, Chaparral announced a nationwide sweepstakes running thru July 31, 2015, with a brand new Chaparral 203 Vortex VR to be awarded to one grand prize winner. Entries can be submitted on-line and also by visiting a Chaparral dealer, or a special event like the boat show. Said Curran “Not only will we have the Vortex models on display, but our staff will be ready to receive written entries. Just stop in for a visit and complete the entry form”. Complete sweepstakes rules can be found on-line at Chaparral’s website.

Pier 33’s Chaparral display will include another first-ever showing at this boat show, the Chaparral 307 SSX. This twin-engine wide beam runabout features full Chaparral luxury from bow to stern, a stylish hardtop, plush seating and the power or Twin Mercury 350 MAG Bravo III’s.

Pier 33’s boat show display will also include a selection of Robalo family fishing boats, such as local debuts of the Robalo R 242 Center Console and R 227 Dual Console, plus the R 180 Center Console. All boats on display feature Robalo’s cost-savings Reel Deal No Haggle pricing.

The Grand Rapids Boat Show opens Wednesday February 18 and runs through Sunday February 22 at DeVos Place. Additional information can be found on-line at Pier 33’s website, http://www.pier33.com.
