Rec Boat Holdings Announces Two New Jet Boat Models

Rec Boat Holdings, Cadillac, Michigan, has announced new jet models for its Glastron and Scarab brands. The Glastron GT207 and the Scarab 215 follow after the introduction of their smaller sister models, the GT187 and Scarab 195, respectively.

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

The company announced its plans last May for both brands. Its introductory models were in production within four months of that announcement and the expansion for each brand offering comes eight months after announcing the entry into jet propulsion models.

All off Rec Boat Holdings jet boat models are powered by BRP's Rotax 4-TEC 1503 jet propulsion system.

On the heels of the GT187, the all-new GT207 delivers additional space. Measuring 21-feet, 10-inches in length with an eight-foot beam, the GT207 features a full, low profile extended swim platform adding extra legroom and wakeboard prep area while on the water. The transom seating area features full seating with angled back rests and a non-skid walk-through into the cockpit – without having to step on cushions. The Glastron helm features comfort ride seating with optional bolster seating and full, custom gauges. The GT207 is built on the Glastron SSV hull and is available with Rotax power options ranging from 200 to 250 hp. The boat also comes standard with a custom matched trailer.
