Scout Boats and Mercury Marine teamed up to celebrate Scout’s 25th year of building sportfishing boats and Mercury’s 75th year of providing the industry’s leading recreational and commercial marine propulsion systems.

The two companies recently joined forces to offer boat-and-engine packages and their partnership continues to grow.

"This is a great relationship that produces quality sportfishing packages for saltwater anglers everywhere,” Scout Boats vice president of operations David Wallace said in a statement. “The two companies have a combined 100 years of understanding what our customers want and need when they’re out on the water.”

Scout is recognized throughout the world as a builder of durable, innovative, high-value boats.

“Mercury is very excited about this partnership and we’re looking forward to growing our business in the future,” John Pfeifer said.

“Mercury’s Joystick Piloting, with their Skyhook capability, is truly helping our business,” Wallace said. “It’s an incredible tool for those who take fishing seriously.”
