With a composite carbon fiber and e-glass epoxy infused hull, Scout delivers a strong and safe ride. Add in a double-stepped running surface, a 22-degree deadrise and a few Mercury Verado outboards (dual, triple or quad configurations up to 1,600 hp), and beat it to the fishing grounds or cruise the waterways in style. Triple captain seats flank the helm, sized for three Garmin 8616 multifunction displays.

Scout also carries innovations into the 400 LXF that makes it a standout vessel. Included is a portside hydraulic beach platform, C-Zone digital switching technology, a standard (yup, standard) Seakeeper 3 gyro stabilization system, an 8kw generator, hardtop retractable water hoses and a SunShade aft awning that works with the articulating rocket launcher. If you’re not “Wowed” yet, just hold on.

The deck layout includes a full walk-around from the forward open bow and amply cushioned lounger in front of the helm to the aft transom bench seat. There’s an optional aft-facing mezzanine seat that folds up to convert into an entertainment center with a sink, a grill, a tackle drawer and storage.

Stay the weekend as the cabin includes AC, a galley, a 32-inch TV, a fridge, an enclosed shower/head, a teak table and a queen berth.

“The 400 LXF is an innovation masterpiece. Designed with precision, this is where technology, performance and luxurious styling perfectly blend,” says Alan Lang, director of sales & marketing for Scout Boats. “While it’s loaded with standard features (like the Seakeeper gyro stabilizer), the award-winning available options will floor you.”

There’s more to this Scout, so check out the 400 LXF and experience the “Wow” factor.
