Luxury Boat Brands: What to Look For, What to Expect

Test Drive

It takes more than plush vinyl and a high-tech fish finder to become a luxury boat brand. It takes years of hard work and dedication with a relentless pursuit of perfection. When you start shopping for a luxury fishing boat, start by choosing the right brand. And as you’ll see, there are a few important factors that you should look for.


At Scout Boats, all the research and development is conducted in-house by our personal team. Every model, from the 17-foot sport fishing craft to our flagship 420 LXF was designed by our team. This means that it has the perfect layout, structure, and style to deliver superior enjoyment on the water.

At any given moment, there are at least four new boats in at Scout. We work to consistently bring out fantastic new products. Our team studies boating industry trends for fresh ideas and inspirations, and we also take styling cues from the automotive industry, allowing us to create world-class boats that are truly remarkable.


In addition to designing its own products, a leading luxury boat brand should ensure that everything that leaves the factory is of the highest quality. This means having an advanced quality control process that examines every detail before the boat leaves the factory.

Scout Boats uses a quality control process that involves a final inspection by a QC expert, in addition to previous inspections by each department. The QC expert will look over the boat and find any blemishes they can spot. When they discover a blemish, they mark the boat with a colored flag, representing the specific department that needs to address the issue.

An important part of our quality control process is the light tunnel. This area blasts the boat, especially the hull, with bright light, the same type you’d find on a sunny summer day. This allows us to make sure the boat’s finish is perfect, creating superior results when the boat is delivered to you.

Once the boat is completely finalized and approved by QC, the boat is given a final tag, showing that it is ready for the market.


While superior designs and detailed quality controls are important, no luxury boat brand will succeed without a strong dealer network. A reliable dealer network helps bring our boats to the water while ensuring that the people who purchase our crafts are buying the right type with the right features for their needs. Many of our dealers are in the top 100 of all the boat dealers in the country, and we constantly grade our dealers on customer service. We are immensely proud of our dealer network, and we know it’s one of the keys to becoming a top luxury boat brand.


You can have one of the most impressive boats on the water by bringing home a Scout.
