Scout Launches 38-Foot Luxury Sportfishing Boat

By Rich Armstrong

For the angler who wants a fishable boat that can do double-duty day cruising with the family, Scout Boats bring you the 380 LXF, which it introduced at the Miami International Boat Show in February.

Sleek aesthetics and first-class technology are apparent on the 380 LXF, from stem to stern. A swept-back hardtop and windshield with curved glass enclosure gives the 380, one of several in the LXF line, its on-the-go profile.

Anglers will like the unique new raised aft facing lounge seat/electronically-actuated convertible leaning post; gas shock-assisted hatches; flush-mount cleats and rod holders; port and starboard floor fish boxes with overboard diaphragm discharge; and two hardtop-retractable water hoses for fresh and raw.

Daytrippers will appreciate the transom and side doors; aft-facing seat step and helm footrest; optional hydraulic port-side beach platform with synthetic teak (ideal for boarding/de-boarding safely away from the transom and engines); a new raised aft-facing lounge seat; optional grill, sink, and cutting board; ice maker or a drawer refrigerator.

There's also an optional Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, electronically-actuated SureShade integrated retractable aft awning, and Scout's optional patented electronically-actuated articulating rocket launchers.

As for convenience, from the helm and/or the key fob, the owner also can control features throughout the model with the help of C-Zone digital switching technology. "We want the customer to feel that 'wow factor' when they look at our models, when they touch something on the model, when they captain the model, and everything in between," said Scout CEO/Owner Steve Potts.

Base price with triple Yamaha F350s is $645,920; with quad Yamaha F300s is $709,097.
