If you are the type of person who values elegance, style, and luxury, then a Scout is the perfect boat for you.

At Scout, our entire team is dedicated to creating world-class luxury fishing boats that meet the needs of individuals who demand more from life. We believe a boat should not just give you access to the best fishing waters; it should enhance your lifestyle through luxury, comfort, and style.

Our boats are the embodiment of luxury, with stunning materials, advanced technology, and features that make fishing more enjoyable. Keep reading to find out why Scout is the leader in luxury fishing boats.

Fishing Made Easy in a World-Class Boat

Fishing is part of our heritage, so we make sure every boat we create gives anglers the fishing features they need for more convenience and easier access to the water. All of our boats have at least one live well, and many come with multiple life-wells and bait-wells near the front and the back. These live-wells are lit and aerated to provide better access to healthy fish.

Because our boats are built with a center-console design, they provide complete access to the water from any position. One of the most important features on our luxury fishing boats is the pull-up cleats. The cleats conveniently tuck into the rail so you don’t snag your line, fishing hooks, or rod tip. When you are ready to dock, the cleats pop up, providing a strong point for tying off the boat.

Luxurious Comfort and Convenience Abound

Throughout every Scout, you will find a myriad of luxury features that make boating more enjoyable for everyone on board. These features include MP3 players, phone chargers, and advanced electronic systems.

You’ll also have a molded swim platform, which provides convenient access to the water, a perfect option for times when the weather is hot and the fish aren’t biting.

Made with Only the Finest Materials

What your boat is made from counts just as much as how it’s made, and we make sure that every piece of material that creates your Scout is of the highest quality. For example, the seating on a Scout is made from high-quality vinyl that protects against staining and fading. This comfortable and elegant material ensures your luxury fishing boat provides the comfort you desire and looks great for years.

You can choose a Scout luxury fishing boat with our stock upholstery or opt for an upgraded Brisa, Italia, or Brisa Heritage package.

The Perfect Yacht Tender

Scout makes luxury fishing boats that are perfect tenders for large yachts. They are used by many yacht captains because they provide excellent performance for fishing, towing, and boating in rough seas. Luxury yacht owners can purchase anything they like, yet they consistently choose a luxury fishing boat from Scout.

“Bay boat” is a loose term to describe smaller boats that are designed for fishing near shores and around bays and inlets. They have higher sides and slightly deeper hulls compared to boats made specifically for shallow flats, but they are capable of handling shallow water while maintaining stability and safety in choppier seas.

Most boaters will keep land within sight while on a bay boat, but with advances in engineering, design, and technology, many bay boats are capable of handing off shore fishing during calm weather.

Advantages of a Bay Boat

bay boats from scout

If you are looking for a versatile boat that can give you near-shore fishing and the ability to move into shallower flats, a bay boat is probably a good choice. You’ll have a lot of options for fishing with a bay boat. They’re generally small enough to maneuver over flats, allowing you to fish for permit, bonefish, and other species that feed in shallow water, while the v-bottom design allows bay boats to handle some chop and makes them ideal for fishing over coral reefs and wrecks.

They won’t have much room for a large number of passengers, however, so boaters who want something for a big group will probably be happier with a larger model like the Scout 420 LXF. The 251 XS, our largest bay boat, can carry ten people, but the 177 Winyah is built for a maximum of five. You’ll want to think about your group size before selecting a bay boat.

Because of a bay boat’s size, they are much easier to trailer and haul. You’ll need a strong vehicle, but you won’t need a semi truck to take your bay boat from the water to the marina to your storage location and back to the water. We have boats available that weight above 15,000 pounds, but when dry and without the engine, our largest bay boat only weighs 2,300 pounds. This makes it an excellent choice for boaters and anglers who want to take their boat on all types of water, from shores and flats to freshwater lakes to rivers.

Bay Boat Options from Scout

Scout has a wide variety of bay boats available. Our smallest bay boat is the 177 Winyah, a 17-footer that sits five people and runs best with an engine in the 70 to 90 horsepower range. You can also choose the 201 Bay Scout, a bay boat that measures 19’ 10” and can carry six people. Another popular bay boat is the 221 Winyah Bay, a 10-passenger vessel that provides excellent fishability and comfort. All of our bay boats come with numerous amenities, including live wells, rod holders, and high-quality upholstery materials.

Find the Right Bay Boat for Your Needs

You can have the perfect bay boat for your specific needs by purchasing a Scout. With high-quality engineering and advanced designs, our boats create a higher standard of performance.

Scout is a leader in center console designs, but do you know why so many people choose this style of boat? Keep reading to find out why a center console should be your next boat of choice.

Better View of the Area

One of the biggest reasons that people choose center console boats is the superior visibility that they offer while you are boating. Because the helm is located in the very center of the boat, you can see in all directions, as opposed to a boat with a console along the side, where visibility can be greater on to the right but blocked on the left. Drivers who want complete visibility will likely prefer a center console boat from Scout.

More Space and Storage

center console fishing boats

Boats have come a long way in storage, convenience, and space, but a center console boat will generally have a better layout for your needs. Many of the center console boats from Scout will also have an interior cabin for more space to enjoy and relax. With a center console boat, the storage areas, including rod holders, coolers, and bait wells will be placed in areas that are more convenient and easier to access.

360 Degrees of Fishing

It’s all about the fishing. One of the top advantages of a center console boat, (it’s probably the #1 advantage for most boat owners) is the ability to cast in all directions. With a boat that has the console along the side, you are essentially limited to fishing from the front and the back. This might not be much of a problem for people who are fishing by themselves or with one more person, but for larger groups, having the ability to cast from any angle is a big factor. On a center console boat, people will be able to cast with enough space so they don’t hook each other’s lines or block each other’s casts. This is especially handy if you catch a large one, as you can go all around the boat while reeling the fish and you won’t be forced to fight from a single location.

Better Balance

This is probably the most over-looked advantage to having a center-console boat. Having the right balance while cruising on the water will affect your acceleration, handling, and top speed. If you are an angler who likes to enjoy some peaceful alone time on your boat, it can be hard to get the right balance. Even when you have a passenger, the difference in weight can make a difference. With a center console boat, however, you can have a more balanced ride, and passengers can sit in front of the console, keeping your boat perfectly balanced throughout the entire trip.

If you are looking for the most impressive sport fishing boat on the water, you need to check out the full lineup from Scout. Our staff is comprised of many different people with numerous skills and specialties, but one thing that brings us all together is fishing. Almost all of us love fishing, and we put this passion into the boats we create.

Not only are our sport fishing boats loaded with features that make angling more convenient, they are built with the highest-level of safety, giving you peace-of-mind when you head offshore for tuna, marlin, and other deep-water species.

Loaded with Fishing Features

If you’re going to head out on the waters for fish, it only makes sense to take a boat that has all the features you need. On a Scout sport fishing boat, you’ll find excellent features, including mounts for electronics like fish-finders and GPS units. Every Scout sport fishing boat, from the largest vessel to our smallest runner, has a live well that is lit, aerated, and recirculating. They have rod holders all over, from the stern to the bow and all along the sides; so finding a place to set your rod is never a problem.

Scout sport fishing boats also have storage for items that make fishing easier. You’ll find areas to store your anchor and chain, ready-to-go plugs for your trolling motor, and even storage areas to keep your rods safe while you’re moving to the next fishing spot. There are even additional live wells and bait wells on some models. Every Scout sport fishing boat has pull-up cleats, which are stored inside the hull so they won’t catch on fishing hooks, line, nets, and rope. When you need to tie to a dock, the cleats can be brought up for convenient docking.

The Right Sport Fishing Boat for Any Purpose

Whether you want a large offshore vessel for angling in deep blue water or a small, nimble cruiser for silently coasting through the flats, Scout Boat has the right sport fishing boat for your needs. You can choose the 420 LFX, a 42-foot long sport fishing boat that comes loaded with luxury and convenience features. It has plenty of storage, refined comfort, a luxurious cabin, and an advanced helm that gives the captain total control of the boat. Anglers looking for something smaller will be well served by models like the 191 Bay Scout, an 18-footer that is perfect for fishing shallow flats and intertidal areas that require a more maneuverable boat. The 191 is made for fishability, with features like pull-up push pole holders, a poling platform, and four rod racks mounted on the gunwale.

From 18 feet to 42 feet, and everything in between, when you purchase a Scout, you’re getting a premium sport fishing boat that will help you have a great time on the water.

You can tell just by looking at it that Scout Boats creates exceptional boats. It has designs that are meticulously crafted by our experts. It has top-of-the-line upholstery materials that are elegant, durable, and comfortable. It has a cabin that was designed to give the driver comfort and convenience. Take one look, and it’s obvious that these are state-of-the-art fishing boats.

But what about the things you can’t see? If you were to dissect a Scout, you would find the same level of perfection that you see on the outside.

Drainage System

To make our boats more convenient, we have added plenty of features, including rod holders, cup holders, and many different openings. What happens if these little features fill with water? On some boats, the water might sit until is it cleaned out, but thanks to our innovative drainage system, the water conveniently flows down. We add tubing to everything we do, creating a plumbing system that makes your boat more enjoyable for everyone.

Whale Board Backing Plates

Behind every item attached to the deck of a boat, you need a strong, reliable backing plate. It needs to be made from a material that will hold screws tight and make sure the item will stay put for a long time. On Scout Boats, we use a material called “whale board” for our backing plates. This is a highly compressed resonated paper that holds screws tighter than aluminum, giving a nearly permanent clasp between the deck and the item. Whale board is used to back many items on our boats, including cleats, swim platforms, tee-tops, seats, and more. It’s a tough, reliable backing plate that adds to the quality and strength of a Scout.

Watertight Tabbing

In a perfect world, every boat deck would be created in one piece, giving better strength and durability due to fewer joints. However, because decks need to be molded, not everything can be created together, as different angles create difficulty when separating the piece from the mold. In our tabbing department, we connect boxes to the deck with fiberglass, creating a watertight connection and building a longer, more durable boat.

Multi-Directional Fiberglass

At Scout, we take pride in using the best possible materials to build our boats. With this in mind, we use multi-directional fiberglass for the creation of our hulls. The best vendors in the industry supply this type of fiberglass. Woven in multiple directions, our fiberglass creates a stronger, more durable boat and gives our products another quality that is hidden from sight.

Find a Great Fishing Boat for Your Family

Visit Scout Boats today and let us help you find the perfect fishing boat for you and your family. You can have the right boat to make everyone happy, whether you are going fishing for marlin or simply out for a relaxing cruise on the water.
