When you are looking for a high-quality fishing boat that delivers long-term value and superior features, a boat from Scout is a great idea. Our boats are expertly designed and meticulously engineered, resulting is a product that gives you and your family years of enjoyment on the water.

While we have many innovations that make our boats stand out from the competition, one of the most important is our reverse-shoebox design, which is used to combine the hull and deck into one piece and create a stronger, better fishing boat.

How the Decks and Hulls of Other Boats Are Manufactured

Many boats throughout the industry use a capping department to connect their decks and hulls. Capping is the tradition way to assemble fiberglass boats, and it is used in about 90% of the boats on the market. In a capping department, the hull is laid out and then broken from the mold. The hull will then be put on a dolly and connected with the deck. The deck will overlap the outside of the hull, and the two pieces are connected using screws, rivets, and calk. While this is the most common way to assemble fiberglass boats, it doesn’t create the same structural integrity and long-term quality as our reverse-shoebox design.

How Decks and Hulls of Scout Boats are Crafted

At Scout, we use a process that we originated, which we call the reverse-shoebox. Picture a shoebox with the main box where the shoes sit and a lid that overlaps the box itself. If you reverse or flip over the box, you have the basic design for our decks and hulls. The deck is like the box on the inside, while the hull is like the the lid, overlapping the deck. The fact that the deck fits inside the hull is very important to long-term quality.

The process of bonding and puttying them together while the hull is still in the mold is another important parts of our reverse-shoebox design. This helps the deck and hull to become a unitized, single piece, essentially leaving the deck and hull as one inseparable unit. Also, we never rely on mechanical fasteners to keep the hull and deck together, further enhancing the bond between the two pieces.

Why the Reverse Shoebox Design Matters

Because of our reverse-shoebox design, your Scout boat will hold its shape for longer compared to other boats. Maintaining a straight, streamlined hull is essential for handing and ride quality, helping you have a more comfortable boating experience while traveling at any speeds. Another significant advantage is the long-term integrity of the boat. A bonding and puttying process is used instead of mechanical fasteners. This results in greater longevity for your boat and makes Scout a better value for your purchase.

When investing in a luxury fishing boat, you want a boat that features the most sophisticated build techniques and engineering. You want the best. Thanks to our meticulous build process, Scout creates some of the most superior sportfish boats on the water.

Here are a few techniques we use to create the perfect fishing boat for you and your family.

In-House Research and Development

Every Scout boat is researched and designed in-house by our experts. Many boat companies outsource their research and development process, allowing other teams to design and create themes for their boats. Scout, however, takes a proactive approach to research and development, using our own design team and engineers to create the perfect boat. We are developing 4 to 6 new models at all times, allowing us to stay at the forefront of boat innovation and design. Conducting our research and development in-house means you get a more unique boat and a superior design.

Precise Laminate Schedule

Scout boats are built to perfect consistency using what we refer to as our “Laminate Schedule.” This process allows our engineers to assemble the fiberglass pieces in the boat the same way, every time. Our laminate schedule lets engineers determine the thickness of the boat, and is one step towards perfect consistency. The fiberglass material is rolled out on a cutting table, and templates are used to cut the precise piece. The pieces of fiberglass are then put together like a puzzle to create the perfect boat, every time. Thanks to our laminate schedule, every Scout boat arrives with the most accurate consistency possible.

Hand-Laid Construction

Another important aspect of our boat-building process is the 100% hand-laid construction. Every part, including the hulls, consoles, decks, boxes, and more, are all hand-laid by our team. Materials are cut to a specific pattern to ensure consistency, with no variation between boats of the same model. Our 100% hand-laid process means a better strength-to-weight ratio. Our boats are faster and more efficient while still maintaining excellent strength for years.

Thorough Tabbing

The tabbing department at Scout boats works on connecting the bottom of the deck with different parts, including live-wells and anchor boxes. Because some parts have different shapes and angles, they can’t come out of the mold at one time and have to be molded separately. This creates the need for a strong attachment that is water-tight and will last for years. Enter the tabbing department. Our tabbing is done with fiberglass to create the perfect seal, and this process is done on all of our boats ranging from 15 feet to 42 feet. It creates a better, longer-lasting waterproof seal between every part, and ensures a higher quality for your boat.

Scout: Leading the Way in Boat Construction

Scout is proud to create some of the most advanced and sophisticated luxury fishing boats on the water. With innovative designs and a thorough build process, Scout is the leader in quality, efficiency, and comfort.
