To simply say that Scout Boats is an innovative company would be a gross understatement. Scout has earned a reputation for being on the cutting edge of design and quality.

This unique feature specifically combats the problem of static stability, common on small boats. With additional longitudinal buoyancy, the Air-Assist hull increases static floatation and decreases time to plane and also vastly improves overall handling characteristics, and increases fuel economy.
