Captain's ReportA forty-one mph top end and a 90 mile range is extraordinary for a 13’ foot jetboat, but this one does it effortlessly—along with racking up a 0-30 mph sprint in 4 seconds. With bright graphics that are actually integrated into the gelcoat, don’t expect those colors to fade. And don’t expect the Heat to fade away, either. Her powerful layup consists of bi-axial fiberglass woven roving as opposed to the plastic laminates of some other jetboats. This one is going to be around a long time. The Heat seats four people comfortably in full suspension bucket seats (with removable for easy cleaning vinyl covers) and your pals don’t have to limit their luggage. There’s plenty of stowage, including a full-size wakeboard compartment in the cockpit and even the engine compartment boasts a stowage area. Another reason that your passengers will be comfortable is the heat’s real deep-V 23-degree transom deadrise. You’ll go through the waves instead of a filling-shaker slam down atop of them.With Merc’s weed-eating pump, you’ll be cleaning out the grate a lot less often, too. The grate’s patented design will push weeds through the pump, allowing them to be macerated before they can clog up the works or cause the engine to overheat.
