The luxury center console fishing boat market has been fueled with dozens of manufactures over the past few years. Featuring limitless performance, passenger maneuverability, and room for all your gear and fish, luxury center console boats provide the best overall vessel for practically all applications.

Scout Boats, the leader in manufacturing luxury center console fishing boats for decades, offers the LXF luxury center console fishing boat. Available in five different models including the 255275, 300, 320, and 350, the LXF offers higher quality, more performance, and increased fuel economy compared to other luxury center console boats manufacturers.

Unmatched Quality

When considering the best luxury center console fishing boats, the first thing one needs to look at is the overall quality of the vessel. President of Scout Boats Steve Potts, who has thirty plus years of boat building experience, knows that it takes more than a good designer and a drawing board to build the right boat.

For example, over years of seeing what designs do and don’t work on the open seas, Potts learned that many companies use a two part construction where the deck lays over the hull and then screws into place. This isn’t the best practice. Due to rough sea conditions, water can get between the joints which causes extensive damage. Since then, Potts and Scout Boats pioneered the industry’s first reverse-shoebox hull/deck design.

Also, thanks to years of understanding the elements and their effects on boats, Potts and Scout Boats have always used composite stringers and transoms instead of wood. Why? Overtime, wood rots. No matter where wood is installed or used on the boat, it will eventually rot and cause damage that is often unrepairable.

Additional Performance

One reason people choose a luxury center console fishing boat is because of its performance. Whether you’re scooting around your local lake or the cape, time is of the essence when tracking down your prize fish. With Scout Boats LXF luxury center console fishing boats, all models come standard with two high performance outboard Yamaha motors ranging from the F150 installed on the 275 LXF to the large F300 found on the 350 LXF.

Based on your needs, all Scout Boats LXF luxury center console fishing boats also have a wide variety of engine choices, including twin Yamaha or Mercury 200-horsepower outboards for total horsepower output, 400-horsepower on the 275 LXF, and triple 300-horsepower engine upgrades on the 350 LXF for a total of 900-horsepower!

Improved Fuel Economy

Scout Boats knows that once you’re out on the water, fuel economy is a concern. Even when equipped with the largest motors available for your specific vessel, Scout Boats uses diverse technology for higher performance and increased fuel economy.

For example, the Scout Boats 275, 300, and 320 LXF luxury center console fishing boats are built using the revolutionary Nu-V3 hull. This high performance, fuel saving “convex” hull design is constructed with different degree angles that offer increased fuel efficiency without loss in performance. While the larger Scout Boats 350 LXF luxury center console fishing boat does not utilize the Nu-V3 hull, it does offer Scout Dual Stepped Hull Technology that also allows for higher performance and optimal fuel economy.

When researching the best boat for your needs, consider the LXF line of luxury center console fishing boats. You’ll enjoy higher quality, more performance and increased fuel economy compared to other options on the market today. Contact a representative for more information.

While Scout boats feature a perfect finish, they all start with expertly engineered foundations. Top quality construction, wiring, drainage, and power are just some of the fundamentals that make Scout Boats a leader in the sport fishing industry.

Construction Precision

At Scout, we cut all our foam patterns for the layout processes within the company and have over 300 different patterns for small parts. We use polyurethane foams and PVC foams depending on the application and design them with strategic cutouts for reinforcements such as hinges, lids and the bow cleat. One of the reasons for using a polyurethane foam or PVC foam is it’s much lighter than marine grade plywood which helps produce a lighter, stronger boat in the long run.

Electrical Wiring

We currently use all 10 wiring on all of our main distribution harnesses and switch panels, as well as the AC side and DC side for all our boats. We also have safety features that are built into our electrical systems such as different relays that allow you to run multiple systems on your boat without running down the engine batteries.

We use all Deutsch plugs on all of our wiring. These plug-in-place systems allow us to have accuracy within our manufacturing process and out in the field when something needs to be maintained or repaired.

When it comes to larger boats, the backside of an AC DC panel sports aircraft quality wiring while the front panel features readings for port battery, starboard battery banks, house battery, and AC voltage for battery chargers.

Drainage

For every boat we build, we plumb everything we do. For example, at the bottom of a rod holder, there’s a hole that can allow for rain or salt water to come in. At Scout, we apply a reinforced two-hose that drains that water and takes it where it’s supposed to go. Anywhere that’s there’s an opening on the boat, it’ll have heavy duty plumbing. Even on a cup holder (where you a have a tiny ¼ inch hole), you’ll have a draining tube that’s connected to the backside of it.

Yamaha Power

One of our partners, Yamaha Motor Corporation, is probably the most sought after outboard motors in the industry today. They own about 80% of the salt water market and consistently showcase engines that run like a top. They build one of the best-looking, fastest running, lowest emission, lightest engines on the market and they do it all at a great price.

Each Scout boat is built with the highest attention to detail and features state-of-the-art innovations that adhere to a rigorous quality control process. Here are just a few of the factors that make Scout Boats world class fishing boats.

Backing Plates

Everything we use is a 100% composite material. We don’t use wood anywhere in the construction of any Scout boat. Our backing plates are made with whale board, a highly compressed resinated paper. It actually has a higher screw retention than aluminum and is some of the best backing plate you can get. We install it where the cleat is going to go at the back of the boat and anywhere on the boat that is going to hold anything of substance (a swim platform, a T-top, any seating). It’ll be in place regardless whether that boat is ordered with that option or not. It’s also installed behind the hinges so all the little hinge screws are embedded in whale board material.

Premium Vinyl

One extra feature that we put in every standard Scout Boat is Syntec vinyl with nanoblock technology. The nanoblock technology has three protection systems. It protects against staining, fading, and mold. Substances such as fish blood, ketchup, mustard, lipstick, and wine that would stain a normal boat’s cushions can be wiped clean away on Syntec vinyl. These cushions are expensive but they’ll last forever and won’t be damaged by everyday use.

Fiberglass

All Scout Boats are 100% handlaid, all the way down to the smallest part on the smallest boat that we build. We use multi-directional fiberglass that’s supplied by the best vendors in the industry. This allows for strength to come from the fiberglass by the way that it’s woven and actually covers every direction (not just north, south, east, west) but every single direction by the way that it’s overlapped. That’s one thing that we do to ensure we have the strongest boats in the industry.

Gel Coat Color

It may not seem that the color or shade of a white is important. One of the things Scout wanted to create was a color that was aesthetically pleasing to the eye and identifiable as a Scout product. It’s also for a purpose. When you’re spending the day out on the water in the bright sunshine, the glare is minimized. Many of our competitors use a bright appliance white which may look nice in a showroom but won’t protect your eyes.

Finish

Another key feature to Scout Boat’s attention to detail is our finishing department. They go through the boat entirely and look for any blemishes or nicks or dings. They’ll buff the entire boat out and make sure it’s completely polished with that perfect Scout finish before delivery.

Light Tunnel

We’ve invested in a special light tunnel. Once it’s turned on, it emulates the sunlight that you would see outside instead of just the factory lighting that you would normally find. We wheel each boat into this light tunnel and go over it with a fine tooth comb to ensure that all the blemishes are out of the boat and that the boat is perfect in its finish and quality once it’s delivered to you.
