SCOUT is a 73' (22.25m) Defoe Commuter Yacht that was built in 1930 and recently refitted in 2018. She accommodates up to 4 guests as well as 2 crew.
SCOUT, Defoe Contract #140, was designed by Walter McInnis of the firm Eldridge McInnis and built by the Defoe Boat & Motor Works in Bay City Michigan. The yacht was commissioned by RE Klages and was originally named CORMAR. Later names include HI-BALL III (1933), OLYMPIC SCOUT (1955), and finally SCOUT (2000).
She has had a fortunate past with excellent owners/custodians who have kept her in top form, most recently she has benefitted from a significant refit / rebuild by the experts at McMillen Yachts between 2000 and 2001 which saw the majority of the bottom re-planked and about 70% of the hull replaced. Then again in 2018 and 2019, another significant refit more focused on mechanicals was undertaken by Lyman Morse in Camden, Maine which saw the installation of a totally new engine room, new electronics, and the refastening of the hull.
In short, SCOUT needs nothing except for normal yearly maintenance and those inspecting her will find her in excellent mechanical, structural, and cosmetic condition with fully updated systems and ready to go.
