Scout Boats said it was named a Roaring Twenties award recipient — one of the 20 best-performing large companies in South Carolina for 2016 — for the third year in a row.

This statewide honor is presented annually by SC Biz News and recognizes the state’s best-performing small and large companies, based on dollar and percentage increases in revenue from the previous year.

There will be a profile of Scout Boats in the winter issue of SC Biz News magazine. All winners were to be honored today at the Marriott Columbia in Columbia, S.C.

“This is a prestigious statewide award, and we’re humbled that we were selected as one of the top 20 large companies for a third year in a row,” Scout CEO and founder Steve Potts said in a statement.

“This has been quite an accomplishment for Scout, as I’ve been told few companies make it back-to-back years, much less three consecutive years, considering thousands of nominations and growing every year.”

Scout builds center console and dual console sportfishing models, along with flats and bay boat models, ranging from 17 to 42 feet.
