Scout Boats builds fishing boats and outboard motor boats. The company's lineup includes 20 models from 5 to 17 m in length (in 5 series: Bay Boat, Dorado, LXF, Sportfish and XSF).
In the mid-1980s, Scout Boats founder and CEO Steve Potts served as plant manager for American Sail boats. Potts had been involved with the shipbuilding industry since the age of 14 and knew that one day he would create his own boats.
Scout Boats is a true American success story. Working part-time, weekends and nights, Potts was able to save $ 50,000 and found his company in South Carolina. The first ship he built in 1990 was a humble 14-foot fishing boat. The excellent finish made it stand out from the competition. Crafted, this small model gained popularity in South Carolina and beyond in a short time.
The first Potts boats built in garages and sheds began to gain a reputation for their creator. The pursuit of excellence paid off as the world emerged from the 2008 economic crisis. While the shipbuilding industry was shaken by material problems for customers, Scout Boats released 18 new models. For several years, the company has grown by 25% annually.
Scout Boats owns a large, constantly expanding shipyard in Summerville, South Carolina. The total area of production facilities exceeds 19 thousand square meters.
The Scout Boats ideology is to create fishing boats with a modern design and a luxury level of comfort.
Scout Boats offers a complete line of exquisite coastal and offshore yachts and boats. It includes a variety of models, ranging from 17-foot outboard boats to a 53-foot center console model that seamlessly blends a luxury yacht with a performance fishing machine.
Since the beginning, Scout Boats has specialized in boats for fishing enthusiasts and in this respect the company has gained invaluable experience.
In addition, the shipyard has gradually moved away from using wood in the construction of its models and instead relies on advanced composite materials that offer greater strength and durability.
