Chaparral honored for 400 Premiere Sport Yacht

ATLANTA – Chaparral Boats, Inc., has won Boating magazine's "2008 Boat of the Year" award for the newly-introduced Chaparral 400 Premiere Sport Yacht, the manufacturer’s parent company, Marine Products Corporation, said in a release this week.

Boating named the Chaparral 400 Premiere the 2008 Boat of the Year in its December issue.

"No boat has exceeded our standards for breaking new ground like the Chaparral 400,” said Randy Steele, Boating's vice president, editor-in-chief. “The Wide-Tech Bow and use of exotic finish materials in the cabin's interior design also sets this cruiser apart from the others."

The editors also noted that the bow design adds room forward without sacrificing the quality of the ride or without markedly affecting the speed or handling, unlike other boats where the bow reduces the size of the cabin in the forward section.
