Length w/ Pulpit:
The Scout 280 Sportfish is a good-looking center console whose quality construction, excellent performance, and superior fit and finish are a match for anything in her class. She rides on a solid fiberglass hull with a wide 9'5"" beam, reverse transom, and very high bow freeboard. Its notable that the fiberglass stringers of the Scout 280 run straight through the transom and into the engine mount, transmitting the load generated by the engines throughout the hull. Standard features include a molded bow pulpit, T-top with electronics box, 30-gallon transom livewell, anchor locker, leaning post with tackle center and rod holders, bow seating with insulated fish boxes under, trim tabs, recessed bow rails, walk-in console with head and opening port, cockpit lights, gunnel rod holders, front console seat with cooler, cockpit bolsters, drink holders, fresh/saltwater washdowns, trim tabs, cockpit rod storage. No wood is used in the construction of the 280 Sportfish, and her lightweight hull is agile and fuel efficient. Twin Yamaha 225hp outboards deliver a top speed of about 40 knots.
