285 ID

Revolutionizing the standard for future jets, the Scarab 285 ID is an evolutionary leap for the jet boat industry. With an LOA of 28’ and a beam at 9’2”, it’s clear, the 285 covers the gamut as the most luxurious, next-gen recreational jet boat on the market. As its name suggests, the 285 competes with the best in the business when curling wakes for boarding and surfing.
