Scout 530 LXF

June 2021 Feature

The Scout 530 LXF is the newest luxury sportfishing flagship model for this manufacturer. Its LXF Collection is comprised of luxury sportfish models that showcase a unique blending of high-performance fish boats with high-end cruisers. The cross between these two popular recreational marine mainstays allows one to enjoy amenities on this collection normally only found on much larger sportfishers.

The 530 is built on a carbon fiber epoxy-infused, double-stepped fuel efficient hull. The Epoxy-infusion process utilizing Carbon/E-glass is used throughout the 530 (a process used frequently in the aerospace industry), and provides a Class A finish, with more stability in the hull while reducing the overall weight in the boat - countering the long-term ideology that a larger boat must be heavy to perform. The length overall is 53 feet long with the beam at nearly 15 feet wide and the beam is extended to an even wider 17-foot, 6 inches when the electronically-actuated dual beach platforms are engaged port and starboard.

The 530 was in development for two years, as the Scout R&D team researched and shaped every inch of the model into a world class mega center console experience. Standard features on the model include a Seakeeper 6 gyro stabilizer; a unique glass helm enclosure with electronically-sliding windows port and starboard; a smartly-designed cockpit island with a forward-facing bench seat, aft facing bar stools that retract and stow out of the way, and a cooler, sink and cutting board with granite counter top; a Fischer Panda 15kW generator; 16,000 BTU air conditioner/heaters in both the cabin and helm area; an electric sliding sun roof; and heated helm seats and seat backs port and starboard, just to name a few.

Aboard the 530 LXF, as with all Scout models, you’ll find completely-finished doors, lids, hatches and bilges. The company takes great pride in its superior fit and finish on every model it produces. It also showcases premium upgraded ultra-leather upholsteries, timeless styling, sleek aesthetics and technology throughout. Scout has built a reputation for being first-to-market with innovations throughout its more than 30 year history, and the 530 carries its company philosophy forward.

Scout builds luxury sportfishing center console, luxury crossover, dual console and inshore/bay boat models ranging from 17 to 53 feet with 100 percent hand-laid fiberglass construction. Since its founding over three decades ago, the company’s goal has been to manufacture the best-built boats in their distinctive sportfishing niches, and they have built a world-class reputation for quality, strength, durability and value.
