Scout Boats founder and owner Steve Potts said the team is “extremely excited by our success at FLIBS,” after the the S.C.-based builder posted record sales.
“Our retail sales were up 115 percent over last year’s Lauderdale show, and what’s important to note is that last year’s FLIBS was also our best Lauderdale show at the time,” Potts said in a statement.
Scout’s 10-boat display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October featured four new models, as well as the revamped flagship 530 LXF with quad 600-hp Mercury Verado outboards. Other new models included the 231 XSB bay boat, 240 LXF center console, 277 Dorado dual console and 350 LXZ crossover.
“With the current state of the industry, supply chain and lack of dealer inventories, it’s incredibly humbling to us here at Scout that people are not only excited about purchasing a new Scout model, but that they are willing to wait for our models for their No. 1 choice of brand,” Potts said.
