The Boat:

The industries first truly inshore /offshore fishing boat in the 25 foot category. The SCOUT 251XS with forward seating was designed to be a hybrid model capable of handling and performing in both inshore and offshore waters. This model has a draft of 13 inches for backwater fishing while the hull design and freeboard allow it to slice through offshore waves while keeping you dry. Beyond the stunning lines, ample fishing features and creature comforts, the 251 XS also showcases SCOUT’s revolutionary T- top glass enclosure keeping you cool on sunny days and out of the wind on cooler ones. This boat has a 300 HP Yamaha four-stroke engine, which can get you to and from your destination in short order. Some other features on this boat includes aerated bait well, leaning post with backrest, FM stereo with iPod jack (bring your own tunes!). JL audio speakers, a Garmin 5212 GPS depth finder and a transom ladder in case you want to go for swim. The boat has plenty of storage capacity so you don't have to pack light!

The boat can easily accommodate 6 passengers and provides a comfortable and safe ride to our fishing destinations. I provide the rods, reels, tackle, bait & ice but feel free to bring your own fishing gear if you prefer. I offer Half Day, ¾ Day and Full Day Charters.
