To simply say that Scout Boats is an innovative company would be a gross understatement. Under the guiding vision of company President Steve Potts, Scout has earned a reputation for being on the cutting edge of design and quality. Consider just a few of the unique design features that make a Scout a Scout. It all starts with the in-house design team headed by Steve Potts.

Through his thirty plus years of boat building experience, Steve has learned what works and what doesn't when it comes to boat design. What may look good to a designer on a drawing board may not work when it comes to the real world rigors of the marine environment. When Steve set out to design his Scout boats, he already had a firm knowledge base from which to draw upon. He paid special attention to what designs didn't work and why, valuable knowledge when you're designing your own boats from scratch. One important lesson Steve learned was that the conventional way of bonding the deck to the hull was poorly conceived from the beginning. Most manufacturers lay the deck over the hull and then screw the two parts together. The flaw here is that in rough conditions, water is allowed to get between the joint and into the boat, the last place it should be. By pioneering the industry's first reverse-shoebox hull/deck design, Steve not only increased the overall strength of his hulls, but made them safer at the same time.
