NEW YORK, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM and Scout Boats, Inc. announced today that Scout is the first boat builder to provide its customers a three-month subscription to SiriusXM's satellite-delivered marine weather, information, and audio services. Scout is a leading independent boat manufacturer in the recreational marine industry, specializing in luxury sport fishing center console, dual console and bay boat models.
Scout customers who purchase a boat equipped with a SiriusXM receiver will get three months of SiriusXM Marine Offshore Weather, SiriusXM's top-level weather package, as well as three months of the SiriusXM All Access programming package, which offers the full spectrum of SiriusXM audio entertainment. This mirrors the successful SiriusXM program offered to millions of consumers each year as they purchase new cars and trucks.
"Much like Scout, SiriusXM is second to none. Our customers are already familiar with SiriusXM audio in their vehicle, so it's natural to want it on their boat," said Dave Wallace, COO of Scout Boats. "We design our boats primarily for sport fishing enthusiasts, and we think it's important for them to also be able to see graphical weather and other key information on their chartplotter/MFD – to help them find where fish are biting. Plus these services make their time on the water more enjoyable."
"We are very pleased Scout is the first to adopt our new program offering three months of SiriusXM satellite weather, fishing information, and audio with the purchase of a new boat," said Dave Wasby, VP Aviation, Marine, and Music for Business, SiriusXM. "These boaters will get to experience first-hand the value of seeing graphical weather and fishing information on their chartplotter/MFD, especially when they are out of cellular coverage. In addition, they can enjoy SiriusXM's world class entertainment programming – including commercial-free music, plus sports, talk, comedy and more – while they're out on the water."
Scout Boats feature SiriusXM Marine compatible chartplotters/MFDs and receivers by Garmin. SiriusXM Marine Offshore Weather features include:
- Graphical Weather Radar with Storm Cells and Lightning overlaid on the navigational charts.
- Sea Surface Temperatures to quickly locate temperature breaks where fish are likely to be biting.
- Marine Zone Forecasts, Marine Alerts, Weather Watch Boxes and Storm Tracking.
- Weather Fronts and Isobars to identify changing conditions and help determine the best times to fish.
The All Access programming package is SiriusXM's most extensive offering and includes Howard Stern, every NFL, MLB®, and NBA game, every NASCAR® race, plus NHL® games, PGA TOUR® coverage and live college sports, as well as SiriusXM's wide variety of commercial-free music, plus talk programming, comedy and several exclusive online-only channels. All-Access subscribers also get access to SiriusXM programming when they are not on the water, on the SiriusXM app and online at www.siriusxm.com.
Scout builds center console and dual console sport fishing models, along with XS/bay boat models, ranging from 17' to 53'. Since its founding nearly three decades ago, the company's goal has been to manufacture the best-built boats in its distinctive sport fishing niches. Each Scout hull is a true original, as the in-house research and design team works closely with engineering to take concepts from blueprint to production more efficiently, growing the company's world-class reputation for quality, strength, durability and value.
