Customer Chronicles

Dear Scout Boats, Once again, my thanks to all of you down at Scout for a great boat. I have been running my 222SF 30 miles offshore for bluefin tuna and so far have not had any concerns that the boat would not get me back home. Even on the...
Dear Scout Boats, My family just loves our new Scout purchased from SouthShore Marine in Huron. They are a great team and a pleasure to work with. I love my 205 SF. Keep making great-riding, great-looking boats. Karl Sooy Cleveland, OH
Dear Scout Boats, Just a beautiful boat! Whether taking a break at Shalotte Inlet or trolling at the “Jungle” 25 miles off Little River, our 242 Sportfish caught everyone’s eye. Jack Kenley
Dear Scout Boats, This makes our 3rd Customer Chronicle submission, and both the fish we catch and the fun we have on our Scout keeps growing! This past Saturday we caught another Blue Marlin on a 30 lb. test line aboard our 175 Sportfish. Caught and released two in just...
Dear Scout Boats, This is an incredible photo taken by Scout owner Kevin McKee. Kevin’s Scout 245 Dorado is in the background, with the Canadian Bull Moose in the foreground. This shot was taken in Thunder Bay, Ontario, at the top of Lake Superior.
Dear Scout Boats, I have had my 175 Sportfish for about 2 years. Came with a 90hp Honda motor and I added a custom T-Top. I take my family to the beach and water ski and also go out with my buddies and go fishing. Boat handles great in the...
Dear Scout Boats, 2008 was good for us, and this year looks just as promising. My son Carlos Umpierre released a 300+ lb Blue Marlin off Dorado, Puerto Rico on May 25, 2009 after over an hour of a fight on 30lb test. The fish was successfully released alive and...
Dear Scout Boats, I am a new boat owner and found the perfect boat for me, a 2006 185 Sportfish with a 150 Yamaha 4 stroke. This boat only had 16 hours on it and was in phenomenal condition. I picked my boat up on a Tuesday and was headed...
Dear Scout Boats, Here are a few shots of my 6-year twins wearing their new Scout Boats shirts while previewing the new Scouts at the CIC Boat Show in Ohio. Thanks for letting me share! Jake Jacobs III
Dear Scout Boats, Attached is a photo of my Scout 222 Sportfish navigating through the Caribbean Waters off the south coast of Puerto Rico on a beautiful spring afternoon in March. Miguel Quijano
Dear Scout Boats: I just wanted to let everyone at Scout know how pleased I am with my 2008 242 Abaco. It has exceeded my expectations in many ways. This boat’s versatility is remarkable. It is as comfortable traveling down the highway as it is on the water. It has...
Dear Scout Boats: After years of looking for “just the right boat” for my corner of the world, I can gratefully say that I have found it in your Bay Scout 180. I live along the South Carolina coast and needed a boat that could handle everything from near shore...
Dear Scout, After having received good user-experience feed-back from my friends we decided to register into fast growing Scout-owners of Finland. I now have experience with the 222 SF (with both 150 and 250 hp), 205 SF (with 150 hp) and of course of the one we have, the reliable...
Dear Scout, Living on a large lake in NW Iowa I wanted a boat I could feel safe with my daughters taking out on their own. I am now on my second Scout 175 Sportfish and like the performance and safety features it offers. Visibility is great at any speed...
Dear Scout, I have to write in and tell you how much I love my 1997 202 Dorado. There are a lot of great fish stories with the Sportfish series, but for fun in the lake and the ocean my Dorado is the king. It currently resides in Lake Norman,...
Dear Scout, Mat Tharpe, Mica Posey, Travis Gourley, Soda Noling, and myself went on an overnight trip out of Destin this past Friday night. We left the dock at 9 pm and ran out about 74 miles to the southwest. We started fishing at 1 am and got our 1st...
Dear Scout, I have had different kinds of fishing boats, but one year ago I decided I wanted to have a great one with excellent performance. I had lot of discussions with your local dealer here in Finland. Good guys with good attitude. They organized a test drive with a...
Dear Scout, We are in Puerto Rico, north of the island in Dorado in our 175SF, from 3.7 to 5.6 nautical miles from shore, we have got three Blue in four half days fishing, 280 lb, 135 lbs and the one in the photo that was calculated at 150 lbs...
Theron Hegler of Isle of Palms, SC and Dr. Robert Hegler of Kershaw, SC enjoyed a great day of Striper fishing on Lake Watree during the summer of ’08 in their Scout.
Dear Scout, We took delivery of a beautiful 205 Sportfish late last year and have been 100% happy with the boat! We were downsizing from a 26 foot Deep Vee flybridge due to the increased cost of mooring and on-water fuel, together with the wish to own a more manueverable...
Dear Scout, This past weekend we put your 220 Bay Scout under a rigorous field test. It appears that this particular model is one of the most buoyant boats Scout has ever produced. Nick Christ / Don Capodanno – Chas. SC
Dear Scout, Scout Boats truly puts incredible thought into the needs of hardcore fisherman when they build these boats. Our Abaco was designed with the idea of comfort, safety, and fishability thus allowing me to take 40 and 50 hour trips with 4 people. The boat has plenty of room...
Dear Scout, We took 1st Place in the Cobia division at the 2008 St. Marys Saltwater Classic Series Tournament on June 28, 2008 with our 38.74 lb. Cobia. We also caught three kingfish as well. Our crew consisted of Jerre Brumbelow, Matthew Barker, Zachary Marx and Gregg Marx, and we...
Dear Scout, My new Scout 282 Sportfish is working really well. With less than 20 hours of trolling time on the boat, I’ve already caught and released four blue marlin; and my Scout garners great comments from both people on the boat or just passing by. They compliment the lines,...
