TOTALLY UNIQUE: Scout365 is the only small inflatable boat designed for exploration but can transform into both a legitimate Fly Casting machine and extraordinary Bird Blind/Camping boat.

Scout365 is the Ultimate Kayak Alternative accommodating 2 adults with all their gear and most importantly, it all rolls up into a bag for easy storage. Perfect for all you urbanites who want to get out on the water but don’t have the space for a boat.
The Scout365 design is a hybrid crossover of dory fishing boats, kayaks and an inflatable dinghy all rolled up into one. Our unique design provides you with the best lightweight, durable and compact boat available on the market. The high bow with the flat bottom offers ridiculous stability and allows you to navigate shallow waters. You can stand up and fly fish, cast with ease and feel totally stable. Combined with a small outboard motor (gas or electric) the Scout365 moves through the water at a decent pace.

Scout Inflatables adds world’s first stabilizer bar to their Scout Inflatable boats for stand-up fishing and casting.
Claiming a “world’s first” significant improvement for small boat fishing, Scout Inflatables introduces the Fly Caster stabilizer bar upgrade to their existing Scout Inflatable boat. Scout engineered the bar to provide excellent stability while standing up for fishing in lakes, rivers and oceans.
The new bar can be retrofitted onto existing Scout Inflatable boats and is specially engineered for inflatables. The bar is easy to assemble with quick release pins and folds forward out of the way when not in use. Built-in adjustments let you set to the preferred height then tension straps lock the bar into position making the boat and bar as one unit. It is rock solid!
The new stabilizer bar is unique because making a stable and durable bar is much harder to do on inflatables. You can easily screw stabilizer bars onto boats made of plastic, fiberglass and aluminum, but inflatable boats are a significant challenge!, Once again the Scout team has risen to the task.
All hardware is attached, no nuts and bolts to lose overboard, using marine grade stainless steel components. The bar also includes a removable padded cover making cleanup quick and easy. Fish bait hands can get a bit stinky.
Accomplished fishing guide Neil Hirtzel recently put the Fly Caster through its paces for the company. “After fishing on larger trailer boats and on land for many years, my initial impressions were skeptical. However once on the water, even in a good ocean chop, I was able to fly cast in a 360 degree position leaning up against the stabilizer bar,” Hirtzel reported. “I was already familiar with how stable the SCOUT365 boats were but with the stabilizer bar installed, it just blew me away with the freedom it gave me to cast in all directions. And being able to lean my weight against the bar—it was designed perfectly. The folks at Scout Inflatables know their stuff,” he said.
This bar means you can really lean on something while you’re fighting a fish. Sportsmen know what we are referring to; it’s just tough to work a fish while you’re sitting down. With this bar, you can plant your feet, lean into the bar and really control things.”
Instructions on how to assemble and install:
Transform your Scout365 into an overnight tent, birdwatching/duck hunter's blind. The Scout Camouflage Tents are custom made to fit exactly around the boat so you can set up to use on both water and land. Perfect to keep you dry for overnight camping. Just remove the seats, deflate the air floor by half, and sleep comforatably on the air floor mattress. Maybe this is the ultimate portable Birdwatching/Duck Hunting Blind/Boat ever made? It's ALL IN ONE!
Portable Boat - Portable Tent - Portable Blind
Our tents feature 2 large side doors, front and back windows with mosquito netting, and an additional rear flap to fold up around an outboard motor. You can motor along with the tent set up on the boat. It's pretty cool!
The tent affixes to the side D rings and fits snug around the bow offering you a wind proof tent and most importantly, keeping you nice and dry.
Our custom tents fit ALL Scout365 Boats and available on our accessories page, click here.
PVC Material and Construction
All SCOUT365 boats are made of the latest generation of PVC 1,100 denier (0.9mm) PVC fabric with polyester support which offers excellent abrasion and tear resistance. Each seam is hand glued with four layers of bonded fabric for maximum strength and durability. Two sheets are overlapped and glued before two re-enforcement layers are attached either side. Glued seams offer better durability to welded seams when the PVC product is designed to be inflated and deflated on a regular basis. Our choice of fabric and seam design means SCOUT365 boats are built tough and designed to last.
DROP STITCH AIR FLOOR
The Air Floor is an integral part of the boat design. It offers rigidity to the boat design and affords you great stability. Our lightweight, removable high pressure air floor system is constructed using the latest drop stitch technology. You will find the same technology being used in many inflatable paddle boards. This system is comprised of thousands of interwoven stitches holding both sections of fabric in parallel. Once inflated, this system provides extreme rigidity to the boat and ensures set up and pack down is easy and quick. The air floor’s construction also absorbs vibrations and is comfortable underfoot and once inflated is extremely rigid. When deflated the air mat is rolled up for ultimate portability. This same technology is used in both our iSUPS’s and AIR PADS.
Pontoon Tube Protection
All SCOUT365 boats include a 8” (20cm) wide pontoon base strake to protect the length of the boat. This protects the boat should it be dragged across abrasive surfaces such as rocks or broken shells.
Internal Bung System
All SCOUT365 boats have an internal bung system which can be opened and closed easily.
SCOUT365 transoms are made with marine plywood and coated with tough 0.9mm, 1100 Denier PVC fabric then fitted with outboard / electric motor protection plates. The transoms can also be used to attach side mounted fishing rod holders (link to accessories). We recommend using stainless screws and sealant when screwing or attaching anything to the transom.
SCOUT365 boats utilize Halkey-Roberts valves designed for easy inflation and deflation. All valves have a double seal for leak protection and are widely used by inflatable boat manufacturers globally.
Our boats require very little maintenance. However we recommend the following to maximize the lifetime of your boat:
Always rinse your boat after use in salt water.
Storing your boat for several days ensure it is covered and out of direct sunlight
Store dry in a dry, well ventilated space.
We strongly suggest storing in an area that is free from rodents.
SCOUT boats can be stored inflated or deflated. If inflated we recommend using a boat cover. If deflated we recommend using the carry bag provided.
Our PVC material is extremely durable however avoid sharp objects or highly abrasive materials.
We do not recommend using solvent or chemical based cleaning agents on your SCOUT365. Your local marine store will be able to recommend PVC inflatable boat
