About Scout Yachts

Steve Potts, CEO and President of Scout Boats, founded the company in 1989; however, the history with Scout Boats dates back to when Steve was in high school and worked at The Outboard Shop in Charleston, South Carolina. The Outboard Shop owner, Homer Norton, built a small 14’ fiberglass boat called Scout. Steve helped Homer build the Scout boats, which sold well and achieved a local reputation for their durability. Steve began his boating career working for American Fiberglass in Rhode Island during the 1970’s, rapidly moving up in the company. He returned to Charleston in 1980 and began working for American Sail as a plant manager. In 1988, Mr. Potts left his successful career at American Sail to start his own boat manufacturing company. The Outboard Shop was sold to another company that stopped making Scout Boats, and they agreed to let Steve use the Scout name. Scout Boats, ranging from 14 to 42 feet, are 100% hand-laid and outfitted with a slew of innovations developed by Steve, such as gas-saving NuV3 hulls and a reverse-shoebox hull/deck design, which increases overall hull strength and dramatically reduces the opportunity for leaks to occur.
