New Jet Boat Models From Rec Boat Holdings, LLC

Glastron GT207

Rec Boat Holdings has rolled out two additional jet models for their Glastron and Scarab brands. The Glastron GT207 and the Scarab 215 follow after the introduction of their smaller sister models, GT187 and Scarab 195, respectively. The company announced an aggressive launch plan last May for both brands and has not disappointed.

The introductory models were in production within four months and now the expansion to each brand offering comes only eight months after announcing the entry into jet propulsion models. All are powered by BRP’s Rotax® 4-TEC® 1503 jet propulsion system.

GLASTRON 207
On the heels of the GT187, the all-new GT207 delivers on additional space and additional fun. The open bow jet boat has a super spacious cockpit with plenty of storage and amenities for all day fun. Measuring a full 21′ 10″ with 8′ beam, the GT207 has 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 an easy non-skid walk-through into the cockpit – without stepping on any cushions. Once inside, the oversized cockpit area with u-shape extra-comfort seating creates the perfect playpen for plenty of family and friends. The signature Glastron helm features comfort ride seating with optional bolster seating for added comfort and convenience and full, custom gauges to monitor your time on the water. The wide open bow area brings additional storage as well
as plenty of comfortable seating for passengers. The feature-packed GT207 is built on the Glastron SSV® hull delivering a perfect ride every time. Rotax power options, ranging from 200-250 hp, provide plenty of power for the new model. The GT207 comes standard with a custom matched trailer.

SCARAB 215
The company expands the brand new Scarab line of jet boats with the Scarab 215, a twin engine 21-footer with plenty of room for any on-water activity. As with the recently introduced Scarab 195, this new model will be available in three configurations – 215 Standard, 215 HO and 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. The new Scarab 215 packs plenty of features including the exclusive Versa-Lounge transom seating allowing your passengers three different ways to catch some rays from the back of the boat. Once in the cockpit, custom upholstery and perfectly appointed colour accents make the Scarab line of boats stand head and shoulders above all the rest. Step into tradition or step up with added amenities as you move up the line. The Scarab line up is answering the needs of water sports enthusiasts as well as the casual boater. All Scarab boats come standard with custom-matched trailer.

“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.” Lambert stated.

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (www.GeorgianBayBeauties.org)

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
