scarab 165 review

The scarab 165 review is a boat designed with fun in mind. It's nimble in the water, fast and affordable to own and operate.

This little jetboat is just plain fun to drive, a boat that's perfect for family outings and weekend adventures. It's a small runabout that can be powered with up to 300 jet-drive horsepower, yet it only weighs 1,700 pounds on a full tank of gas. That's a lot of power-to-weight ratio that will make any boating enthusiast happy.

In addition to spirited performance, one of the biggest advantages of jet boats is their safety and ability to travel in ultra-shallow water. The 165 ID uses its compact size to the best advantage with a line of bucket seats for skipper and passengers along the back and an L-shaped lounge in the front.

To get a true feel for what this boat is all about, watch this video of the 165 ID in action. Then give us a call to see her in person.
