We could coin the words determination, humble and passionate when talking about Scout as a company, and you wouldn’t be wrong. As a builder, they have been through more trials and tribulations than most. In 1989, their factory was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo. This did not stop their founder, Steve Potts, from continuing his vision of building the best in class boat possible. He recognized that the only way to do this was to break the mold and innovate.
Scout introduced industry-first innovations like reverse-shoebox hull/deck, broken sheer line, hydraulic beach platform and patented T-top glass enclosure to name a few. They have even gone as far as answering the demands of colder weather by offering heated seats. With the consumer being their catalyst, they needed to answer the daunting hurdle of integrating performance, style, and efficiency without sacrificing comfort. To do this they knew they had to strip away the conception of what it took to design a boat at the time. This was apparent when they introduced the industry’s first Hybrid.
From the fuel-efficient hull to the helm touch-screen to the electronically-actuated articulating rocket launcher and hardtop-mounted solar charging panels, every system of the boat is integrated to work seamlessly together. If you are looking at the 300 LXF or its big brother the 420 LXF, Scout will bring you a unique on-the-water experience.
Performance, efficiency, and comfort are accentuated with eye appealing detail by using a Carolina flared-bow style boat that inspires sophistication, boldness, and elegance. This is coupled with the finest craftsmanship and unparalleled boat building experience. The next time you are on the docks take a moment and run your hand across the 100% hand-laid fiberglass hull and luxurious upholstery. Observe the rich accents throughout, smooth flowing lines and the attention to detail from bow to stern. Scout will leave you breathless.
At the factory, every detail and nuance goes through a “quality assurance” process and is scrutinized to ensure specifications and requirements are met. Attention to every detail, no matter big or small, is at the forefront of the entire design and build process. This shows with features such as completely finished bilges, the underside of doors, lids, and hatches to the hidden details like the fuel-efficient hull design and construction.
With Scout, it is their dauntless attention to even the smallest details, consumer focus and cutting-edge innovations that have allowed them to become an industry leader.
