Our models aren’t just stunning to look at…they’re also packed with many first-to-market innovations and features. Notable industry-first Innovations over the years include:
- Reverse shoebox hull/deck design
Scout pioneered the first reverse-shoebox hull/deck design, which increases overall hull strength and prevents water from penetrating through the hull/deck joint in rough conditions. The eradication of all wood in the manufacturing process is also a Scout trademark, as it produces rot-free composite stringers and transoms.
- Introduction of the industry’s first Hybrid model, as noted on Good Morning America
Scout Boats are the highest performing and most fuel efficient boats on the water. Period. Their gas-saving hulls (like the NuV3 and Air Assist hulls) are coupled with state-of-the-art outboard engine advancements. These ultra-efficient designs allow them to create the most technologically-advanced models that offer the best strength-to-weight ratio of any boat in its class. And all Scouts offer piece of mind with 10 year limited hull and 3 year limited stem-to-stern warranties
- NuV3 hull design
Scout’s NuV3 hull design is another engineering marvel. This ‘convex’ design is comprised of variable degree angles in the hull, offering immense fuel efficiency and the softest, driest ride in its class without sacrificing performance.
- Air Assist hull design
Scout’s Air-Assist three piece hull creates static stability, adds additional longitudinal buoyancy which enhances static floatation, decreases time to plane and vastly improves overall handling characteristics with the added benefit of increased fuel economy.
- Scout Stepped Hull Technology
Scout’s Stepped Hull Technology achieves an approximate 10-15% performance increase over conventional hull designs with similar deadrise. By reducing the hull’s wetted surface, the overall effect creates a faster, dryer and better performing boat requiring less horsepower and increased fuel savings.
- Strata-Mount Engine Mounting System
The “Scout Strata-Mount” is an advanced engine mounting system on select models. It’s comprised of a factory-molded bracket which allows for the two main longitudinal grid stringers to pass through the transom and be directly integrated into the engine mount. This allows for the natural stresses of the engine to be spread out over the entire hull, increasing strength, durability and performance.
- Patented T-Top/Glass Enclosure
Scout has been first to market with its revolutionary T-top/glass enclosure, which was awarded a U.S. Design Patent. Scout redesigned the old style T-top/glass enclosure for a cleaner, more modern look, as well as incorporated tempered glass. The result is a more stylish, more user-friendly design that increases visibility, which in turn is also safer.
