Scout Boats, Inc. has taken necessary steps during 2009 to help its dealer network reduce their inventories in an effort to help spawn sales for 2010. Aggressive sales incentives and a proprietary Dealer-Linked Inventory Program have helped the company reach its lowest inventory level in 15 years.
“Other companies are still trying to stop the bleeding while we've been mending the wounds,” said Scout Boats National / International Sales Manager, Alan Lang. “Because we're a debt-free independent company, we've been able to take the necessary steps to ensure we not only weather this unprecedented recession and help our dealers through these hard times, but to perfectly position ourselves to prosper in 2010. On top of this, our research and development team, led by company owner/CEO Steve Potts and his son Stevie Potts, have added 10 new models to our lineup for 2010.”
Nine new 2010 models were debuted at the company's annual dealer meeting. The 10th new model introduction will be the unveiling of Scout's new flagship center console, the 345XSF Sportfish, in February at the 2010 Miami International Boat Show.
