The H2O 19 Sport is available at “no haggle” nationally advertised pricing that starts at $23,385 with a 135 hp MerCruiser sterndrive. Yet, quality reigns. The cockpit, consoles and all seat bases are part of the one-piece deck mold. It’s self-draining, making for simple end-of-day washdowns. Cushion backs are composite and feature a layer of flow-mesh foam for drainage. Vinyl boasts French stitching for durability.
Look closer. Wraparound windshield supports are solid bars rather than universal, ball-joint supports. Faria gauges feature stainless-steel bezels, and the gray dash minimizes glare. Supportive bucket seats wrap around both the driver and passenger. The ski and board crowd will appreciate the pneumatic-strut-supported hatch on the vinyl-matted ski locker, as well as the nonslip swim platform with covered ladder. Turning aft, a 70-quart insulated cooler is hidden below the cockpit bench. The generously sized, three-part sun pad offers engine access below its central cushion and aft-facing battery access to starboard.
Chaparral’s trademark Extended V-Plane hull design acts like built-in trim tabs. Outfitted with a catalyzed MerCruiser 4.3 MPI, our test boat planed in 4.3 seconds and reached a top speed of 51.2 mph.
