Rec Boat Holdings Debuts Scarab 165


This has been quite a year for Cadillac, Michigan-based Rec Boat Holdings, now a part of the Jeanneau family of brands, which launched the new Scarab line of jet boats back in January. Since then, RBH has released two models in the lineup: The Scarab 195 and Scarab 215.

Now, the company is tapping into the 16-foot category with the brand-new Scarab 165, powered by the Rotax 4-TEC jet propulsion system.

Packing amenities and jet boat fun into a compact, 15-foot, 9-inch package, the 165 comes in three models: The 150-hp 165; 250-hp 165 HO; and the 250-hp 165 HO Impulse. And with a low introductory price of $19,998, the Scarab 165 is a perfect entry-level family boat. It comes standard with a low-profile swim platform, reboarding ladder, ski tow and exclusively designed Comfort Ride seats.
