Scout Boats delivers 21-footers to South Carolina marina

Scout Boats recently delivered four Scout 210 Dorado models to Palmetto Bluff, an award-winning, 20,000-acre nature preserve and resort community in southeastern South Carolina, so the marina could add to its boat rental fleet.

Palmetto Bluff’s drystack marina, Wilson Landing, is on the May River. The dry storage facility has 80 racks accommodating boats as large as 36 feet, a dock with six platform lifts over the water, an outfitters center and a Boat Club rental program, of which Scout is now a part.

“We’ve experienced a growing demand to expand and update our current private Boat Club fleet, so we began a search for a boat that would meet all our particular needs,” Wilson Landing marina supervisor Capt. Chris Story said in a statement.

“We needed a vessel that could easily operate under a wide range of experience levels — from folks just getting their feet wet to seasoned veterans. We also required a boat that could meet the varying needs of a boat club program: fishing, skiing, cruising, sand baring, etc., while being able to give eight passengers a comfortable, dry ride in less than perfect conditions. It was only after an extensive vetting process that we decided that Scout Boats and the 210 Dorado would be the best fit for our needs. Since the introduction of the Dorados to the fleet, we've heard nothing but raving remarks from our boat club members. They love the ample cockpit space, versatility, ease of control and comfortable ride. Not to forget, the perfectly matched power the Yamaha 150-hp outboard provides.”

Scout builds sportfishing, fish ‘n ski, walkaround, flats and bayboat models ranging from 15 to 35 feet.
