Scout’s Superior Design, Development, and Research Process

At Scout Boats, we take pride in creating unique, world-class boats that meet the needs of anglers and boaters of all experience levels. One of the reasons that Scout Boats stands out from the competition is our superior design, development, and research process. We strive to stay at the forefront of the industry, so at any given time we have four to six new boats going through research and development.

Not all designs will become Scout vessels, but our research and development process helps us create boats that are unmatched in quality, engineering, and style.

Using Ideas from Many Industries

At Scout, we get our inspiration for our boat designs from many sources including a wide variety of other boats, automotive trends and even the housing industry. We take into consideration many different designs and materials to create some of the most unique, stylish, and comfortable boats on the water.

We love going to boat shows and seeing all the latest designs, but we don’t just focus on boats that are similar to ours; we look at everything. From small aluminum fishing boats to multimillion-dollar yachts, we want to see it all so that we can get the best inspiration for your next boat.

Our designers and leaders also attend automotive shows, looking at state-of-the-art designs for vehicle exteriors, as well as innovations for interior comforts and conveniences. We also stay up-to-date on the housing industry, which allows us to consider design features and materials like hardwood flooring and granite countertops.

We Do Our Research

After conducting research and generating creative ideas, our designers will sketch out their newest model. These sketches happen whenever inspiration strikes. We might draw out our ideas on a piece of paper, in a notebook, or on the nearest napkin, as long as we are putting our ideas down.

From there, our engineering team does their work. These highly skilled professionals create digital 3D-models of our designs, allowing us to look at the idea from all angles. Creating a model with our computers allows us to make changes quickly, whether these changes are simple or complex.

Extra Steps for the Perfect Design

Because we take such a large pride in creating quality boats, we use one final step in our research and development process. After we have the design how we want it, we create a physical, full-scale model that we can walk in, sit in, and scrutinize. Having a life-size model allows us to find quirks and problems that we may not have noticed at first glance with the 3D-model. For example, space may be too tight or the layout might simply look awkward once it’s been built to full scale. With this extra step, we can make changes and adjustments until we have the right design to send to the production floor.
