Scout 151 Built By Puffin Boats in Maine

Scout 151 Dorado
If you would like a versatile and affordable boat built to last a lifetime, come to the New England Boat Show this week and set your eyes upon the Scout 151.  Hamlin's Marine has been a long time dealer of the entire line of Scout Boats built in Summersville, SC for many years.  However, the 151 is special, as these boats are now built at Hamlin's manufacturing wing...Puffin Boats in Hampden, Maine.  Puffin Boats is also building components for Hinckley Yachts, display units for Vineyard Vines, as well as our classic line of dinghies.

The 151 is offered in two configurations, a dual console and a center console.  The center console model, the Scout 151 Sportfish, is an excellent fishing rig for fresh or salt water and may be equipped with electronics and a trolling motor.

Demand for both models has been high as the Scout 151 Sportfish, Yamaha F40, and trailer starts at just $16,995 which prices well below competing small boats offered by Boston Whaler and Edgewater.  Unlike competing models the 151 features and on-board 10 gallon fuel tank versus and gaumy portable tank.  It also features a self-bailing deck which is not common in this segment.  Powered by a base 40 HP outboard, the boat tops out at 32 MPH which is great for pulling a tube with the kids.  Know also, that you can upgrade to a 50 HP option.

Best of all, the Scout will be built by Maine craftsmen in Hampden, Maine.  Puffin Boats puts their heart and soul into producing the finest quality on the market today.
