New Boat: Scout 300 LXF Center Console
By Tom Richardson on May 18, 2016
Scout recently unveiled its new 300 LXF, a forward-seating center console with the company’s Nu-V3 high-performance, fuel-saving hull design.
The LXF Collection comprises luxury sportfish models that blend high-performance fishing features with high-end cruising amenities. The 300 is the fourth model in this category, accompanying the 275 LXF, 320 LXF and 350 LXF models.
An interesting feature of the 300 LXF is the state-of-the-art C-Zone digital switching electronics system. It’s easier to service than conventional systems, and comes with a remote key FOB that allows you to program different electronics on the boat to power on or off with the touch of a button.
The model also incorporates Scout’s patented T-top/hardtop with tempered-glass enclosure; Fusion stereo w/ iPod jack or USB flash drive; deluxe fiberglass leaning post with a bait well, tackle drawers, Dual Airmar Custom helm chairs with folding lean bolsters and armrest, sink and rod holders; power-assist hydraulic steering; and an aft under-deck systems station complete with storage.
Underneath the bow forward seats are fishboxes/storage compartments that complement the in-floor fishbox. There’s also a cooler seat in front of the console.
A fully cushioned berth is below, featuring a cushion that folds up to create additional storage space. This space also contains a stainless steel sink with a Corian vanity and mirror.
Additional standard features include dual swim platforms with center walk-through; a transom door; a starboard console storage closet for a brush, gaff, lines, etc; an electric marine head with 10-gallon holding tank, overboard discharge and dockside pump-out; Lenco trim tabs and stainless steel flush-mount rod holders.
