SCOUT FAIRCHILD 30 RAISED DECK MOTOR CRUISEROne of fewer than sixty Scout 30s built in the late 1970's and early 1980's and one of only 3 built in a motor sailer configuration. She was designed by noted powerboat designer Ben Ostend. The Scout 30 was designed to evoke the grace of an earlier time. Generally speaking, some of the most beautiful pleasure craft of all times were designed and built during the period between the first World War and the great depression. That particular era was one in which the entire approach to yachting was on a level of affluence, elegance and grace. In most cases the yachts of the 20's reflected that ideal amalgam of charm and function that typifies enduring designs in any field.The Scout 30 makes no concessions to nostalgia. There is nothing about her design that is extraneous or superficial and the overwhelming resemblance to a yacht of the 20's is not just a contrived marketing stratagem. On the contrary, it is the result of a desire to arrive at the most natural configuration for a 30" flush deck motor cruiser.The reproduction of this twenties design has resulted in a motor yacht that can be defined as the "ultimate statement in refined elegance. The Scout 30 is elegant, comfortable and simple- pure and simple.All fittings are brass or bronzse and she will cruise for 1000 miles at 6 knots, consuming just a gallon of diesel fuel per hour. Her Perkins 4108 turns a such a modest RPM that she is almost silent running either from the cockpit of the saloon.There are about 50 examples of this yacht in North America and as one of the first owners of the Scout 30 said, "We must have one of these - we feel that something like this belongs in our family, it will be an heirloom"Solid Fibreglass Hull.
