What are the benefits of buying your boat from 158 Performance?
Unlike a conventional prop engine, which pushes water in a dispensed pattern, Rotax Jet Power concentrates thrust. An onbaord impellar pulls water in and forces it out at a single point for maximum power. Less wasted engine power means more power in your throttle hand.Advanced Safety
Scarabs are designed from the ground up so you will always enjoy a fun and care free days on the water. With Rotax® Jet Power, you do not need to worry about a propeller when swimming or skiing near the boat. You also have peace of mind knowing that your Scarab has a very shallow draft allowing you to avoid below water obstructions and the ability to safely navigate almost any part of the waters.Closed-Loop-Engine Cooling
Protects the engine from harmful salt, gunk and corrosion by cooling it with clean coolant like a car. Like your car, every Scarab has a thermostat to ensure optimal engine temperature for engine reliability.Drive Shaft Sleeve
Helps prevent the problem of wrapping debris, such as tow ropes and weeds, around drive shafts while other systems can only try to fix the problem after it occurs.Lateral Thrust Control Delivers Quicker Reverse
Unlike other boats, which feature a small, plastic reverse gate, our aluminum reverse gate offers unmatched low-speed maneuverability to make docking a breeze.3 Year or 480 Engine Hours Warranty
All boats are supplied complete with a CE certified trailer & trailering cover
