Sea Ray F16 Jetboat
Designed to hold 4 passengers, the F16 exhibits great handling and a lightning-quick hole-shot.

Key Features

    A 175-hp Mercury XR2 Sportjet powered the F16 to a top end speed of 50 mph. To give you an idea of how responsive the boat is, you can only turn the wheel ¼-turn lock to lock and that’s still plenty to get you spinning donuts. This jetboat has a two-tiered swim platform to act as a staging area for skiers or wakeboarders, and the three seats across the bench featured good deep padding. A forward lounge rounds out the seating for four, with good grabrails all around. Contact: Sea Ray Boats, Inc. 2600 Sea Ray Blvd., Knoxville, TN 37914, Phone: (866) 244-0862,

The F-16 is quick and agile.

Fast, fun, and stylish describes the F-16. But, what jetboat isn't all of these things? The F-16 was designed for four passengers and exhibited great maneuverability at high speeds. It is not longer

Sea Ray F16 Jetboat Captain's Report

Though this boat’s no longer in production, it made quite a statement in the jetboat market when it was. The F16 had three side-by-side bolster-type seats across the main bench area, with the helm seat to starboard. Forward of the helm, a curving lounge with grabrail can seat a fourth adult. The fiberglass engine hatch (not padded) raises easily thanks to gas-assist struts to reveal the powerful 175-hp Mercury Sportjet XR2 inside. It was a simple matter to send the F16 into a 180-degree turn simply by cranking the wheel hard over and yanking back on the single-lever engine control from forward to reverse. (Remember, there’s no “transmission” to ruin on a jet boat since the engine is always in forward gear. The reverse position simply lowers a bucket over the jet nozzle to redirect the water flow forward.) This maneuver takes a bit of practice but it’s a guaranteed thriller.The F16’s top-end speed of 50 mph at 5400rpm is plenty to get you where you’re going in flat water, and with her 25-gallon fuel tank the F16 had a range of 100 miles at 31.6 mph.
