The 261 XSS is an inshore/offshore crossover and is loaded with notable features such as the large casting fore and rear deck; port and starboard aerated baitwells; ample rod storage; and a console coffin box. This model combines the luxury of a Scout with all the characteristics of a serious bay boat. Scout’s bay boat collection is known for its aggressive lines, high performance, and all around fishability.

Standard features include a fiberglass hardtop w/ integrated acrylic windshields; Fusion Bluetooth stereo w/ six JL Audio speakers; and a pocket transom ladder and built-in synthetic decking step…just to name a few. Upgrade from the standard leaning post w/ cooler to the fiberglass aerated livewell leaning post w/ two helm seats w/ flip-up bolsters, trash can, tackle storage, bottle opener, rod holders and Corian countertop; as well as add on underwater lights; hardtop mounted rocket launchers; raw and fresh water wash down; outrigger, Power-Pole, and trolling motor options; and a porta-potti.

Scout’s new patent-pending Sport Tower upper station is also a notable option on the 261 XSS. The Sport Tower not only provides full controls at the top, but it’s designed to place the driver aft of the helm passengers to improve visibility for all.
