Scout Boats debuted three new models last week at its 2017 model year dealer meeting in Charleston, S.C. — the 255 Dorado, the 215 XSF and the 175 Sport Dorado.

The company allowed dealers and members of the press to test the new models during the two-day event. It also held a customer sales expo and presented dealer awards.

Beyond the three new models, Scout introduced a patented articulating rocket launcher feature on the 420 LXF and a custom paint option that is available for 2017.

Scout recognized its top dealers and sales professionals from around the world, based on sales figures from the previous year.

The top salesman of the year was Barry Marshall of the Viage Group in Sarasota, Fla. The dealership was named overall dealer of the year and top CSI winner.

Also winning top dealer honors were Seven Seas Yacht Sales, of Fort Lauderdale; Hall Marine Group, of Mount Pleasant, S.C.; Legendary Marine, of Destin, Fla.; and MarineMax Stuart, of Stuart, Fla.

Top international dealer honors went to Marine Locker Bermuda, of Hamilton. Northwest Boats of Portland, Ore., took the award for new dealer of the year.

MarineMax, which has locations in Florida, New Jersey, New York, Texas and Maryland, won for top multi-site dealer.

“We had our most successful dealer meeting to date,” Scout senior vice president and COO Dave Wallace said in a statement.

“Our new-model unveilings were well received by the media, our dealers and our customers who attended our boat sale expo, and we’re very proud of the dealer network we’ve built and how hard they work on our behalf.”
