Rec Boat Holdings introduces two new jetboat models

Rec Boat Holdings has rolled out two additional jetboat models for its Glastron and Scarab brands eight months after it announced it would enter the segment.

The Glastron GT207 and the Scarab 215 follow the introduction of their smaller sister models, the GT187 and Scarab 195.

The company announced an aggressive launch plan last May and began the production of introductory models within four months. The expansion of the brand offerings is coming eight months after the company announced its entry into jet propulsion models. All of the boats are powered by BRP’s Rotax 4-TEC 1503 system.

The Glastron 207, an open-bow jetboat that comes standard with matching trailer, measures 21 feet, 10 inches, and has an 8-foot beam. A low-profile extended swim platform adds extra legroom and a wakeboard prep area. Transom seating features angled back rests. The oversized cockpit area has U-shape seating. The open bow area allows for additional storage. Rotax power options range from 200 to 250 hp.

The Scarab 215 is a twin-engine, 21-foot boat and is available in three configurations, as is the Scarab 195 — a 215 Standard, a 215 HO and a 215 HO Impulse. Power options on each model are twin 150-hp Rotax with the Scarab 215, twin 200-hp Rotax with the Scarab 215 HO and twin 200-hp or 250-hp Rotax with the Scarab 215 HO Impulse. Versa-Lounge transom seating allows passengers three ways to sunbathe from the back of the boat. Custom upholstery is included and customers can add amenities as they move up the line.

"We're excited to be showing these new jetboat models at the Progressive Insurance New York Boat Show, as well as other key shows around the world," Rec Boat Holdings president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “Our dealer networks have been very excited with our progress and the finished products with our new jetboat lines. We have very aggressive goals for the show season and are confident these new boats will help boost our success.”
