Scarab

Rec Boat Holdings has introduced the next evolution in their new Scarab jet boat line entering the largely untapped 16-foot category. The Scarab 165, powered by the legendary Rotax® 4-TEC® jet propulsion system, measures in at 15' 9" and comes in three configurations - the 150-hp 165 (standard); 250-hp 165 HO; and 250-hp 165 HO Impulse. All three versions delivering plenty of roomy jet boat fun in a small package. Starting at just $19,998 in the U.S., the new Scarab 165 comes packed with plenty of affordable amenities and on-water performance.
 
The Scarab 165 is a family boat that seats five and comes standard with a variety of comfort conscious features. Just to name a few, an extended low profile swim platform with reboarding ladder, ski tow, and custom-matched trailer are all standard equipment. The cockpit is carefully laid out to provide plenty of room to move around with nicely styled Comfort Ride interior spring seating delivering a smooth ride across the lake. But do not be fooled by the creature comforts - this boat performs like a rocket. The exclusively-designed Comfort Ride seats provide the needed cushioning and flex while putting the Scarab 165 through its paces. At rest, the aft seating area is expertly designed for lounging on the sandbar with two rear-facing seats and plenty of swim platform for stretching out or prepping for a tube ride. For those who want to take it up a notch, upgrades include premium sound system with four Kicker lighted speakers, custom wakeboard tower and digital speed control package (speed, ECO, cruise and docking mode).
 
"The new Scarab 165 performs like a go-cart on the water," stated Roch Lambert, Group President, Rec Boat Holdings. “The proven Rotax power is the perfect match for this hull. It is a fun driving boat while also a thoughtfully designed boat for the entire family - the perfect complement to our growing Scarab line of jet boats," Lambert stated.
 
The new Scarab models are available at authorized retailers worldwide.
