New Chief Scout in the Mold

What's the details? Is this the new fellow/soldier or a Chief version? Demo boat or customer? What power? Thanks for the pics

I don't know specifics yet but I think it might be going to a dealer. Outboard power I'm pretty sure. Bob Saccenti commented on the Defender/Chief relationship previously, see below;

I am working with Phil to get him started on his way into the marine powerboat business. These same molds are used to build the "Chief Edition Scout" for Chief Powerboats to complement our dealer line for name sake. I am personally overseeing Defender Powerboats in Phil’s absence. He was asked to return back to Afghanistan for a short stay and will be back before Christmas to continue working on his personal 21' Scout. I spoke to him this morning and he said all is well BUT the rocket and mortar attacks really annoy him while he is trying to do his job.

“God speed a safe return Phil”

I remember reading that one now, thanks. Can this boat be built for a single/sterndrive application?

Good question. I would assume anything is possible since some of the early Scouts, like mine, had I/O's. However, the later model Scouts were built for O/B's and early model Scouts had a different deck than this version with windshield and cockpit further forward to make room for the engine compartment.

Here are a few more new pics.

This is an early model Scout (my boat) and below that is the late model Scout with updated Deck. If you want one built with an I/O let me know and I can see what they can put together.

What is the size? Looks similar to a Cigarette 20. Great to see a smaller performance boat being built.

I had to look twice at your pic Panther---- at first glance it looked as though the Scout had twins lol
