1986 30' Scout

I am offering my 1986 30' Scout trawler for sale. The boat was built in Midland, Ontario Canada. The first hulls were built by Fairchild Yachts in California. It is powered by a Volvo series 2003T 46HP turbo diesel. A 2012 custom built aluminum trailer is available at extra cost. Asking $39,900. Please contact Greg Jackson at 864-923-2817 cell for details. Thanks!

It may be quicker and easier to call him.

I've already got a Scout but I am interested in the trailer. I've had the Scout for 12 years & really love the boat.

Carl i have love old trumpy and elco's since i was a kid so when i saw the first scout in mystic conn.i set out to find one for sale and found a great one in louisiana but it was sold before i could get there.so i kina keep track of what and where they are for the future.we have decided to sell all our places and do the live aboard thing so we are looking at a much larger trawler but if this doesn't work out i want to find myself a scout adn truth be told i still would like to have one. Carl would love to see more photos of olive oyl i sure would enjoy seeing them. Thanks

The pics of Slo-n-ezy could be pics of my boat other than my bow sprit & swim platform. The Scout is a little small for a live aboard although I've seen people live aboard sail boats with less room. If I was going to jump up to a larger trawler with similar classic lines & a displacement hull I'd be looking for a Pilgrim or a Lord Nelson. Ofcourse if you go to wood the possibilities for beautiful boats are endless.

A new friend at the time allowed me to check out his lord nelson adn we took her out for a short trip. The boat is beautiful adn very cool that all the original wood for each boat comes from one teak log, i am a wood guy. The problem i had with it was engine room access and the forward cabin was tight and not great ventilation. The pilgrim i have never been on. I was very interested in a elco i was on but don't have a open ended checkbook and we could not get any kind of answer on some hull work adn i am not a ship wright still love the boat and the price keeps going down but i think i need to stay with a plastic boat for ease of maint. Thanks!

I have a Scout 30 just like yours but with a full mahogany enclosure. Would you be interested in selling your trailer? If not can you tell me where you got yours and what you paid for it?

Looks good Gary. I wish we had a website for Scouts. Do you have a generator for your airconditioner?

No it was originally made with a central air unit in it that ran off of shore power but one of the previous owners took it out and installed the roof top. I wish it had a small generator and the central air back in it. I have pretty much completed going over the inside and all the fiberglass. Then I need to redo the exterior but its all mahogany and there is no rot anywhere. I have to replace the head which I think I am going to install an electric one and I need to have the transmission rebuilt then she will be ready to take on the Great American Loop. That is on the top of my bucket list for retirement. I hope to leave May 1st 2014.

Sounds great. I think the Scout is a great boat for the loop & that's our goal also. A guy named Ken Bassett called ma last year. I had conversed with him on the T&T forum about 5 years ago & he was looking for a Scout back then. He bought one up north on Lake Michigan I think & brought it down the Mississippi & then over to Florida. He came by to see my boat & said he was taking it up to Vermont. He shoould have it up there by now. Not exactly the great loop but pretty close. He said he got into some really rough water but the Scout handled it great.
