After two years of research, development, and design refinement, Scout Boats has introduced the ninth – and, it says, most impressive to date – boat to join its LXF Collection, a line of luxury sportfish models that showcase a unique blending of high-performance fishing boats with high-end cruisers. The 530 is a center console vessel designed to offer timeless styling, sleek aesthetics, powerful performance, and advanced technology.
The 530 is built on an epoxy-infused, double-stepped fuel-efficient hull produce with a Carbon/E-glass process – 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, the 530 proves that a larger boat doesn’t need to be heavy to perform.
Customers can choose their multi-engine configuration based on their individual performance appetite. Scout has worked with both Yamaha and Mercury to successfully reach high cruise and top-end speeds. The boat will hit speeds in the mid-50s on four engines, but can achieve more horsepower and speeds reaching the mid-60s with five engines.
“We’ve created a yacht-like-center console masterpiece on so many levels”Scout Boats
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.
Customers can also now order an alternate leaning post configuration on their 530 LXF, reversing the layout and putting the entertainment station facing forward in the console, with the bench seat facing aft in the cockpit. Another area the 530 shines in is the versatile seating options throughout the boat. The boat contains 21 comfortable seating area, including a plush bow area, a three-person forward sun lounge with dry box underneath, aft-facing stadium seating for three, and helm area seating for seven, an array of options that creates a much wider variety of experiences for all ages than other vessels.
Scout designed the 530’s fit-and-finish with an eye to outshining the competition, with completely-finished doors, lids, hatches, and bilges, along with premium upgraded ultra-leather upholsteries.
Throughout its 30-year history, Scout has built a reputation for being first-to-market with innovations, a tradition carried on with this newest release. The 530 includes a patented bow camera and an optional patented electronically-actuated articulating rocket launchers (that work in unison with the SureShade integrated retractable aft awning). Three Garmin touchscreen MFDs make it easy to navigate to matter where you are on the boat. The 530 also includes C-Zone digital switching technology, Fusion stereo head unit with Bluetooth capability and 12 JL Audio speakers, four subwoofers and three amplifiers, and twin bow electronically-actuated tables.
The attention to detail continues below deck. The company partnered with an interior design company to design appointments intended to let customers feel like they are stepping aboard a private jet or walking into a clean, modern luxury home. The 530 showcases a master stateroom up front with a walk-around queen berth, unique rod storage underneath when the gas shock-assisted frame is raised, and 32-inch LED TV. Facilities include an enclosed separate head with door and skylight, and enclosed separate shower room with door and skylight; a galley with sink, drawer refrigerator, drawer freezer with internal ice maker, wine chiller, and a 32-inch LED TV; and a dining table and couch that convert to a single berth. An aft double berth, hanging closet, central vacuum system, and an overhead saloon skylight with automatic sliding shade complete the luxurious below-deck experience.
