Secures Eighth Place Among Top 20 Large Companies

Published: Friday, October 27, 2017

Summerville, SC – Scout Boats, the leading independent marine manufacturer, has been named a
Roaring Twenties award recipient - one of the 20 best-performing large companies in South
Carolina for 2017, for the fourth year in a row. Scout secured the eighth-place spot out of the top
large 20 companies chosen for the illustrious award.
This statewide honor is presented annually by SC Biz News and recognizes the South Carolina’s 20
best-performing small and 20 best-performing large companies (for a total of 40 companies) based on
both dollar and percentage increases in revenue from the previous year. A profile of Scout Boats will
be published in the winter issue of SCBIZ magazine. All winners were honored on October 19, 2017 at
the DoubleTree by Hilton in Columbia, SC.
“This is a prestigious statewide award and we’re humbled that we were selected as one of the top 20
large companies for a fourth year in a row,” said Scout CEO & Founder Steve Potts. “This has been
quite an accomplishment for Scout, as I’ve been told few companies make it back-to- back years much
less four consecutive years considering thousands of nominations and growing every year.”
In order to qualify for the Roaring Twenties designation, companies must have a physical presence in
South Carolina and be a for-profit entity or a nonprofit organization (EXCEPT FOR: government
entities and charitable organizations, including 501(c)3 organizations. These types of nonprofits are
not eligible).
Scout builds luxury sportfishing center console, dual console and inshore/bay boat models ranging
from 17’ to 53’. Since its founding nearly three decades ago, the company’s goal has been to
manufacture the best-built boats in its distinctive sportfishing niches. Each Scout hull is a true original,
as the in-house research and design team works closely with engineering to take concepts from
blueprint to production more efficiently, growing the company’s world-class reputation for quality,
strength, durability and value.
