The P&H Scorpio is one of the most trusted and best featured plastic sea boats on the market. Available in three sizes the Scorpio is a rough tough expedition ready boat that’s speed and stability through the water have earned a loyal following around the world. Sharing many of the design features of the Cetus the Scorpio is favoured for use where your looking for more durability such as for rocky launches and landings, or simply don't want to worry about damaging a glass boat. The MKII Scorpio has benefited from some minor tweaks to the hull for improved stability and some clever improvements to the deck to make the boat more user friendly and sail ready. Made from Corelite X, a 3 layer plastic with a foam like core sandwiched between two high density PE layers to give a stiffer, lighter and more durable boat with better performance closer to that of a composite boat. The Skudder Control System is a clever but robust design that can work as a skeg for control in wind or waves or as an under stern rudder that works efficiently even in rougher conditions. The 'skudder' can be deployed partly or fully with the control located just to side and front of the cockpit with the rudder controlled via the adjustable foot pegs linked to a simple mechanism that is hidden away on the back deck but easily accessible for cleaning and maintenance. This feature is a must is your considering sailing your Scorpio!
The area around the cockpit has been raised and re profiled to give a more comfortable seating position, and also allow the optional Code Zero sail to store away when not in use.
