    Scout Boats has built a reputation as one of the leaders in innovation and quality in center console boats. Founded in 1989, Scout's Boats are the highest performing and most fuel efficient boats on the water. Their hull designs offer the best ratio of strength to weight of any boat in the same class. Scout discovered that the conventional method of bonding the deck to the hull was not designed very well from other designers. By pioneering the industry's first reverse-shoebox hull/deck design, Scout Boats not only increased the overall strength of their center console hulls, but made them safer at the same time. By not using wood in the manufacturing process, which is also a Scout trademark, produces rot-free composite stringers and transoms.

    Scouts hull design is another engineering marvel. Their 'convex' design is comprised of variable degree angles in the hull, which offers excellent fuel efficiency and the softest, driest ride in its class and does not sacrifice performance. This stepped hull technology helps Scout boats to gain an approximate 10-15% performance increase over the conventional hull design with a similar deadrise. With a smaller wetted surface, Scout Boat owners have a faster, dryer, and better performing center console requiring less horsepower and increased fuel savings. Scout also features an Air-Assist three piece hull to increase performance in planing out. This creates static stability and adds additional longitudinal buoyancy, which makes static floatation better, decreases the overall time to plane, and greatly improves overall handling characteristics revolutionary.

    Scout also has a fully factory molded bracket called the "Scout Strata-Mount". A very important feature to this is that it has two main longitudinal grid stringers that go through the transom and are built into the engine mount. This design lets the natural stresses of the engines to be spread out over the entire hull, increasing strength, durability and performance in your center console. One of the great center console options you will have is the optional T-top/glass enclosure. This uses a tempered glass for additional safety giving Scout Boat owners a stylish, user-friendly design that increases visibility. This high quality performing center console from Scout Boats offers customers piece of mind with a 10 year limited warranty on the hull and a 3 year limited stem-to-stern warranty.
