Scout Boats, Inc. will unveil the much anticipated 530 LXF, the company’s newest luxury sportfishing flagship. This “mega center console” addition is the company’s latest to its popular LXF model line. The model will be officially debuted to the media and public at the 2019 Miami International Boat Show at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin.

Scout’s 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 LXF is the eighth and most impressive model in this category to date, joining the
255, 275, 300, 320, 355, 380 & 420 LXF models.

The 530 is built on Scout’s carbon fiber epoxy-infused, double-stepped fuel efficient hull. The Epoxy-
infusion process utilizing Carbon/E-glass is utilized on the 530, 420 and 380 LXF models (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. LOA is 53’ 0” and the beam sits at a stable 14’ 8”. The beam is extended to an
even wider 17’ 6” when the electronically-actuated dual beach platforms are engaged port and

“What we’ve created here is a ‘yacht-like-center console’ masterpiece on so many levels,” said Scout
CEO/Founder/Owner Steve Potts. “A masterpiece that not only looks stunning, but one where the
consumer can choose their multi-engine configuration based on their individual performance appetite.
Working with both Yamaha and Mercury, we’ve been able to successfully reach incredible cruise and
top end speeds with either four, five or even six engines. And there-in-lies the real performance
statement that we make with this model – it will run incredibly on four engines with speeds in the mid
50’s. But if a customer wants the look and feel of more horsepower and speeds reaching mid 60’s,
then they can get five engines. We’ve even had two models pre-ordered with six Mercury engines for
an undisclosed buyer, of which one model will be on display in our Scout booth at the Miami show.”

A 530 LXF rigged with five new Yamaha 425 XTO engines will also be on display in the Yamaha booth
during the Miami show.

The 530 has been in development for two years, as Scout’s 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.

“One of the things that clearly separates our models from our competition is fit-and-finish,” added
Potts. “Our 530 carries this principle forward again with completely-finished doors, lids, hatches,
bilges…we’re not just screwing a cheap seat cover to a lid and calling it a day. We’ve chosen premium
upgraded ultra leather upholsteries, taken the time to finish the boat inside and out, packed it with
incredible innovations and put it all on a state-of-the-art high-performance hull with our carbon epoxy

Timeless styling, sleek aesthetics and technology are three main pillars of the 530. Scout’s built a
reputation for being first-to-market with innovations throughout its nearly thirty-year history, and the
530 carries the company philosophy forward with perks like the company’s patented bow camera;
Scout’s optional patented electronically-actuated articulating rocket launchers (that work in unison with
the electronically-actuated SureShade integrated retractable aft awning); a Garmin 24” MFD touch
screen at the helm, Garmin 12” MFD touch screen in the overhead helm, and Garmin 8617 MFD
behind the port mezzanine seat; C-Zone digital switching technology; Fusion stereo head unit with
Bluetooth capability and 12 JL Audio speakers, four subwoofers and three amplifiers; twin bow
electronically-actuated tables; a transom access doors both port and starboard; and numerous seating
options available throughout the boat 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.

“Another area our 530 shines in is the versatile seating options throughout the boat,” added Potts. “We
designed 21 comfortable seating areas (not including the integrated bar stools) that create a much
wider variety of experiences for all ages than any other inshore/offshore vessel in existence. We’ve
created an on-the-water entertainment platform where regardless of weather, sea conditions or
speeds, the captain and crew can enjoy numerous options to maximize their pleasure on the boat.”

“The 530 is certainly beautiful top side, but you really get a feel for the time and attention we put into
the entire model as you move below deck,” said Potts. “We partnered with Genesis Interiors to design
appointments below never seen before on a boat this size. We wanted the customer to feel like they
were stepping aboard a private jet or walking into a clean, modern luxury home.”

Below deck the 530 showcases a master stateroom up front with a walk-around queen berth and
unique rod storage underneath when the gas shock-assisted frame is raised; an enclosed separate
head with door and skylight; and enclosed separate shower room with door and skylight; galley with
sink, drawer refrigerator, drawer freezer with internal ice maker, wine chiller and 32” LED TV (there is
a second 32” LED TV in the master stateroom); dining table and couch that convert to a single berth;
aft double berth; hanging closet; and a central vacuum system. There’s even an overhead saloon
skylight with automatic sliding shade, and Garmin MFD touch screen mounted in the salon.

“We want the customer to feel that ‘wow factor’ when they look at our models, when they touch
something on the model, when they captain the model, and everything in between,” said Potts. “The
530 is like no other boat in its class, period.”

Scout builds luxury sportfishing center console, dual console and inshore/bay boat models ranging
from 17’ to 53’. Since its founding three decades ago, the company’s goal has been to manufacture
the best-built boats in its distinctive sportfishing niches. Each Scout hull is a true original, as the in-
house research and design team works closely with engineering to take concepts from blueprint to
production more efficiently, growing the company’s world-class reputation for quality, strength,
durability and value.
