A Summerville boat maker plans to unveil its premier yacht model at a boat show in Miami next month.
Scout Boats Inc. said in a news release the company will debut the new 67-LX series yacht at the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show Feb. 15-19.
Alongside the largest boatbuilding endeavor the company has ever undertaken, Scout is also on target to hire 200 high-paid skilled labor jobs with benefits. A plant expansion also is underway, the news release said.
The 67 LX Series, which the company says is one of the largest outboard-powered sportfishing yachts in the world, will encompass three models: the LXF Luxury Fish Model, LXS Luxury Cruiser Model and LXS Luxury Sport Model. All three are powered with five Mercury V-12 600-horsepower engines with a top speed of 60 miles per hour, a high-cruise speed of 40 miles per hour and a range of about 500 miles, the company said in the news release.
