Scarab 255 Impulse Wake Edition Scarab jetBoats
Sea-Doo has exited the jet-boat industry, but its engines are still being used in various new jet-boat models such as those by Chaparral, Glastron, and now Scarab, which is known for its leadership in high-performance boating and innovative design. This is apparent in the new 255 Impulse, which reflects Scarab's forward-thinking approach and utilization of cutting-edge boatbuilding techniques.

The 255 Impulse comes equipped with a head-up display that provides touch control to various engine systems, stereo, ballast, and more. This feature can also be utilized to program rider profiles for wakeboarding or surfing. Additionally, the throttle control is enhanced by the industry-first iNR system, which intelligently manages neutral and reverse operations. With the simple tap of a button, the throttle settings can be adjusted up or down. The amount of touch adjustment can be customized to suit individual preferences, ranging from 1 millimeter to approximately 15 millimeters of throttle travel. This allows for precise and tailored control, with 5 millimeters of travel resulting in roughly a 1 mph adjustment. The iNR system ensures that the throttle can be adjusted according to personal feel, avoiding overbearing or too-gentle adjustments.
Engaging the throttle activates the jet pumps that propel the 255 Impulse forward, while the crew and ballast work to drive it downward, creating a noticeable trough in the water that results in a substantial wake when the water rushes back in. The jet-pump impellers from Rotax are enclosed internally, offering peace of mind to swimmers who may be relaxing on the broad transom platform as there is no risk of injury from contact with sharp propeller blades. Additionally, the pump nozzles are situated beneath the platform, far from any wakesurfers, ensuring their safety as well.

The 255 Impulse boasts a central transom walkway that provides easy access to the cockpit area, which can be shaded using the fixed Bimini top located under the wakeboard arch. The cockpit area can comfortably accommodate a crew of up to 13 individuals on the port and starboard L-shaped lounges, with a convenient walk-through to the transom. If additional seating is required at the stern and less in the cockpit, the seatbacks can be flipped forward to open up the swim deck seating area, allowing for relaxed lounging while at anchor.
Scarab's generous cockpit and foredeck seating arrangement feature upholstery that is firm like that of a sports car, yet flexible enough to provide a comfortable ride even in choppy waters. This boat offers a luxurious experience that is both ideal for water sports enthusiasts and families alike.

The Scarab 195 Open is a versatile sport utility Jetboat that is perfect for family weekend adventures on the water. It boasts a center console steering station and water-jet propulsion, making it suitable for activities such as wakeboarding, diving, fishing, water-skiing, tubing, and simply having fun with your family. At a dry weight of only 2,600 pounds, it can be easily towed behind smaller vehicles. The Jet boat also has an enclosed head, making it even more family-friendly.
Scarab Jet Boats acquired the tooling for the former Sea-Doo 18-foot-10-inch bowrider hull, but redesigned the interior from scratch, resulting in a fold-down tailgate that is perfect for a buttoned-up transom and a water-level boarding platform for swimmers and wakeboarders. The enclosed head is another excellent feature that is hidden in the center console and provides more than enough space to change out of wet bathing suits.
The Scarab 195 Open comes in two configurations: Open and Open Fish. The test boat was the Open, which features a watersports tower with a high tow point and Bimini top, flip-up seats by the helm that convert to walkways, and a sun pad aft. The standard power is a 250 hp three-cylinder supercharged and intercooled Rotax 4-Tec powertrain, which can reach 41 mph quickly and hit 30 mph in just seven seconds. The hull has twin channels that provide straight-line tracking and smooth turns.
Overall, the Scarab 195 Open is an excellent choice for boaters who are looking for a versatile and family-friendly boat that is easy to tow and offers an enclosed head, fold-down tailgate, and smooth handling.
