SCOUT 380 LXF
south carolina-based scout is known for striking boats with flowing lines, and the builder constructs a mean hull that can chew up and spit out most any chop. Scout boats range from a 175 to a 420, with this 380 LXF being part of the Luxury Center Console line. She has customizable hull colors, an optional 10-speaker JL Audio sound system, and a grill station abaft her console. Quad 300 hp or 350 hp Mercury or Yamaha outboards are available, driving what the builder says is a 50-plusknot top-end. There is an optional Release fighting chair for big-game fans, and for deep-drop or kitefish anglers, she is prerigged for electric reels. Three helm chairs and two lounges in the bow, coupled with seating at the bow peak, abaft the console and at the transom, should let everyone spread out. An optional portside hydraulic swim platform is available as well.
