Top Bay Boats From Scout Boats

231 XS

Bay boats are extremely popular all across the country. By providing versatility, reliability, and comfort, bay boats meet the needs of both fresh and saltwater anglers. They are also great for skiing and water sports or simply cruising the water in leisurely style. If you are considering one of these crafts, take a look at the top bay boats from Scout.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT BAY BOAT?

Bay boats are most popular in coastal waters, especially in regions where both deep and shallow-water fishing are available. Because bay boats typically have good length, usually above 21 feet, they provide reliable stability while maintaining shallow drafts of less than two feet. Commonly, the “V” in the hull of a bay boat will not be as sharp or deep. This helps it maintain shallow drafts but still allows it to cut through waves and chop.

Top bay boats are usually used for fishing, so fore and aft casting decks are essential. These should be spacious, and they should give anglers an elevated position and have fewer chances for snagging the line. On larger models, it may be possible for two people to cast from a deck without much of a problem.

To reach specific fishing destinations with ease, a top-quality bay boat will also come with a powerful, efficient engine. Having a jackplate that lifts the engine (not tilts, but lifts vertically) will assist with both propulsion and boating through shallow waters.

251 XS

251 xss
At 25 feet in length, the 251 XS is one of the best bay boats from Scout. It was designed to be a true inshore/offshore craft, utilizing a unique hull design that allows it to maintain a shallow draft with excellent stability and ride comfort. Although it is 25 feet in length and has room for 10 people, it has a draft of 13 inches, meaning you only need a little over a foot of water to cruise in this craft.

The boat can also be equipped with all the features that make for a great bay boat. It comes with features like a ten-inch jackplate, a trolling motor plug, and an aerated live well.

231 XS


The 231 XS is the second bay boat created by Scout in the “XS” lineup. Like the 251, it comes with all the features you need for a fantastic boating and fishing experience in bay areas, but the smaller profile makes it a little more manageable for smaller areas like rivers and backwaters.

With comfortable seating, large fishing decks, and a hull that creates a smooth ride from start to finish, this craft matches all of your bay boating needs.

What Size Boat Do You Need?

177

Are you trying to decide what size boat you need? Start with how you plan to use the craft. Here we’ll take a look at some basic types of boating to help you choose the right size for your needs.

OFFSHORE FISHING BOAT SIZE: 30-FEET AND UP

420 lxf
For off-shore fishing, you want a large, sturdy boat that can handle heavy waves and rough conditions. In a small boat, the larger chop of open waters can toss and turn your vessel. This could create an uncomfortable experience and be dangerous for you and other passengers.

Great Choice for Offshore Fishing: 420 LXF

The 420 LXF is our flagship craft. With an impressive size of 42 feet, it’s one of the best boats you can find for offshore fishing. It has luxury features, fishing accessories, and comfortable deck accommodations that allow you to stay on the water for days at a time.

INSHORE FISHING BOAT SIZE: 17 TO 20 FEET

177
For inshore fishing, you need a boat that is capable of reaching shallow, hard-to-reach locations. You might be fishing intertidal shallows near the Florida Keys or a river delta on the west coast, but having a boat that can cut through tight corners and shallow areas is essential.

Great Choice for Bay Boating: 177 Sport

Few inshore fishing boats can deliver the comfort and versatility of the 177 Sportfish. This center-console boat is perfect for inshore fishing and quick family outings.

BAY BOATING SIZE: 20 TO 30 FEET

231 xs
For bay boating, you need a combination of size and versatility. Many bays can have large, choppy, rough waters, but rarely the type you will see in the open ocean. They also have more obstacles, such as water-way markers, buoys, and other boats. This makes a combination of size and maneuverability essential.

Great Choice for Bay Boating: 231 XS

At 23-feet, the 231 XS is a wise choice for anyone who will do a lot of bay boating. You’ll be able to go out into the open water on calm days, and you’ll still be able to maneuver through a crowded bay with ease.

CRUISING / PLEASURE BOATING SIZE: 20 TO 30 FEET

255
Do you simply want to cruise the water and relax? Then chances are a boat between 20 to 30 feet will suit you just fine. A 17-footer probably won’t give you the leg-stretching comfort you prefer, while 40 feet is likely too much for your needs.

Great Choice for Cruising: 255 Dorado

The 255 Dorado is a great choice for simply cruising and relaxing. It has comfortable lounge seating on both ends and can be enhanced with numerous optional features such as a high-quality stereo, grill, and fiberglass hardtop.

WATER SPORTS BOAT SIZE: 17 TO 25 FEET

210 dorado
For water sports, choose a smaller boat with a powerful engine for pulling skiers and maintaining the right speed. 17 feet will certainly work, but you can go up to 25 feet and still maintain performance.

Great Choice for Water Sports: 210 Dorado

At 21 feet in length, the 210 Dorado gives you plenty of size for comfortable riding and can make turns and maneuvers with ease. Add in the ski tow bar and you have a world-class ski boat that fills in as a luxury fishing craft when needed!
