The mission of the H2O 18 Sport is a simple one: Provide a budget-conscious boat buyer with all of the basics needed for utility and good performance while maintaining the hull integrity of Chaparral's premium boats. Then, customers coming to a Chaparral showroom will have the option of choosing a lower-priced category of boat while at the same time having the peace of mind of knowing it was constructed by a premium brand. For a growing number of consumers these days, that is the best of both worlds.
For openers, the H2O 18 Sport is the smallest boat built by Chaparral. With a 7’6” (2.28 m) beam it is also the narrowest, and not surprisingly has the lowest displacement – 2,300 lbs. (1,043 kgs.), 800 lbs. (362 kgs.) less than the Chaparral 196 SSi. There is 25% less material in the H2O 18 Sport than in the 196 SSi.
Secondly, when you step aboard the 18 Sport, you won't see any stainless steel grab handles, stainless steel drink holders, premium bucket seats with flip-up bolsters, and there is no GPS moving map display in the dash. What you will see is a boat that delivers on the things you truly need: A plastic drink holder and gauges that deliver critical engine information are more essential than the moving map.
