Scout Boats is debuting three new center-console models at next month’s Miami International Boat Show in Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin.
The builder is releasing the new 330 LXF, 305 LXF and the 277 LXF as well as a single-engine runabout the 215 Dorado. Scout Boats will have the boats in the water at booth 450.
The twin-engine 330 LXF was designed for entertaining, cruising or fishing. With a length of 32”9” and a 10’4” beam, the 330 LXF offers abundant seating including in the bow, front of the console, a rear bench seat in addition to the helm seating.
Base power is twin Yamaha F300XCA outboards but the center-console boat is available with Mercury powerplants. The 265-gallon fuel tank provides good range for the far-off fishing grounds and the boat also includes a 12-gallon holding tank and a freshwater tank that can hold up to 22 gallons.
The 330 LXF comes standard with a hardtop that has a full windshield, six rocket launchers and LED rope lighting. A leaning post has three tackle drawers, a 65-quart YETI cooler, sink and a cutting board with a cutting board. Down below, Scout included an electric marine head with a 12-gallon holding tank. The model starts at $337,386.
Scout plans to introduce the 330 LXF’s smaller sibling, the 277 LXF. Starting at $168,295, the 277 LXF comes loaded with standard features including a powder-coated hardtop for the console, a dive door to port, a fully walkable transom swim platform and forward seating with removable backrests.
Base power is dual Yamaha F150XB outboards and Scout Boats offer upgraded power from Yamaha and Mercury Marine. Fishing features include a port aft recirculating bait well, fish boxes in the port and starboard sole, and stowage for rods. Buyers can upgrade the leaning post to include a bait prep station, sink and tackle drawers.
Access to the console is available through a side door and includes a porcelain head and a porthole allows light and fresh air into the compartment. The 277 LXF comes standard with a hardtop and can be upgraded with outriggers.
Scout is also debuting the 305 LXF at Miami but has not released any additional details about the model. A rendering from the South Carolina boatbuilder shows a smaller version of the 277 LXF with aggressive center-console styling. The boat has twin outboards and comes with a hardtop similar to the 277 LXF.
The Miami International Boat Show takes place February 12-17.
