Boating Electronics: Proper Boat Wiring

By its very definition, a high-quality luxury fishing boat demands superior technology. With our advanced electronic systems, we can create boats that use the latest technologies that you find anywhere on land. At Scout Boats, we believe that your lifestyle of quality and comfort should continue whether you’re on land or water, so we wire our boats to meet your highly-sophisticated needs.

PROPER WIRING CREATES AN EXQUISITE BOAT

Before we dive into the specifics of our wiring, let’s talk a little bit about why proper wiring matters. With our advanced electronic system, we can add more features, more electronics, and more technology to your boat, allowing you to have a more rewarding experience on the water.

Take the 420 LXF as an example. Thanks to our advanced electrical system, we can wire this boat with standard features like a Fusion speaker deck and amplifier, cabin sound bar, dimming courtesy lights, three Garmin screens, CZONE digital switching, and much more. And it’s all thanks to our advanced electrical wiring!

RELAYS ALLOW YOU RUN YOUR SYSTEM WITHOUT DRAINING THE BATTERY

One of the biggest concerns with operating electronics on a boat, especially an offshore boat, is draining the battery. In other boats, as you run systems like the radio, lights, or other electronic features, you may be slowly draining the engine battery. What happens if it drains all the way? The starter on your motors may not have enough voltage to turn over, potentially leaving you stranded on the water. This is not only a convenience concern, this is a safety issue.

However, Scout Boats are made with an advanced relay system that keeps the battery from draining. You can use the radio, navigation, and many other features without emptying the engine battery. This is a major advantage in the water, allowing you to enjoy your boat and head back to the dock when you are ready.

PLUG-AND-PLAY SYSTEMS FOR RELIABILITY AND CONSISTENCY

When manufacturing our boats, we use a uniform system of plug-and-play parts. With this system of parts, we achieve accuracy within our manufacturing process and convenience when the boat needs maintenance and repairs. The wiring system is essentially uniform (as much as possible, at least), making our boats more consistent and convenient. While the wiring system is highly advanced, it’s also easier for a technician to work and make changes if needed.

AIRCRAFT-QUALITY WIRING

When you take a look behind the wiring panels on a Scout, you’ll see first-hand that this is no ordinary fishing boat. The boat is wired with aircraft-quality parts, which ensures long-lasting, reliable quality and allows you to run all the features, parts, and accessories that you demand.

READINGS FOR VARIOUS AREAS

At the front of the wiring panel, you’ll have access to different readings that give you information related to the boat’s electrical system. These readings can include the port battery, house battery, starboard battery, and more. There is even a reading for the AC voltage for battery charges, giving you the information you need when you’re out on the water.

FIND THE RIGHT BOAT FOR YOUR PERSONAL TASTE

Whether you want a large luxury cruiser or a nimble boat for fishing the flats, you’ll find the right options from Scout. When you are looking for quality and perfection from a fishing boat, Scout is the name to remember!
