Rec Boat Holdings introduced the next model in the new Scarab jetboat line, entering the largely untapped 16-foot category.
The Scarab 165, powered by the Rotax 4-TEC jet propulsion system, measures 15 feet, 9 inches, and comes in three configurations, starting at $19,998 — the 150-hp 165 (standard); the 250-hp 165 HO; and the 250-hp 165 HO Impulse.
The Scarab 165 seats five and comes standard with features that include an extended low-profile swim platform with a reboarding ladder, ski tow and custom-matched trailer.
For those who want to take it up a notch, upgrades include a premium sound system with four Kicker lighted speakers, a custom wakeboard tower and a digital speed control package (speed, ECO, cruise and docking mode).
"The new Scarab 165 performs like a go-cart on the water," Rec Boat Holdings group president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “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 jetboats.”
