We're pleased to announce the launch of our latest project, SCOUT. This 31' design is modeled in the vein of the rumrunners of old. Perfect for picnics and short day trips, this aluminum-built open center console features plenty of teak and varnished wood. She is powered by a 422 hp Volvo D6-435 diesel connected to a Hamilton 292 Jet for an estimated speed of 34 knots. SCOUT was designed by Dieter Empacher, who also drew the commuter express launch COMET we launched in 2002. Pierce Aluminum supplied all the water jet cut aluminum plate for this project which makes the layout so much easier. The aluminum hull construction phase is the third done completely by us at our Metal Fabrication facility just a short distance from our main yard.
Check back soon for some more pics of SCOUT zipping through the St. George River.
