Rec Boat Holdings introduced its largest jetboat model with the Scarab 255, giving the line a range of 16 to 25 feet.

Powered by Rotax jet propulsion, the Scarab comes with options of twin 150, twin 200 and twin 250 horsepower.

The boat has a walkthrough designed to provide easy access from the sun deck to the cockpit and it features a tucked-away, yet easily accessible head, the company said. It can carry as many as 13 passengers and will come with the option of a Platinum Trip Package.

“Now, with the addition of the Scarab 255, we’ve got four boldly designed models that live up to the Scarab name,” Rec Boat Holdings president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “The Scarab 255 handles like a true performance jetboat, but you’re cruising with a dozen other people who are all feeling that same thrill on the water.”

The Scarab 255 H.O. Impulse and 255 H.O (available as twin 200/twin 250-hp options) and 255 Base (twin 150-hp) models are available at authorized Scarab retailers worldwide.

The boat will make a limited debut at the Houston Boat, Sport and Travel Show, the Toronto International Boat Show and the New York National Boat Show. It also will be at other shows, beginning in late January and early February.
