Scout 420 LXF

Luxury 42-foot center console blends performance and cruising.

Unveiled to the public at the Miami International Boat Show in February, Scout‘s new 420 LXF truly turned heads. LXF stands for Luxury Sportfisher, and Scout’s collection of these models — with the 420 as the flagship — ­highlights a blend of high-performance fishing and high-end cruiser features.

Scout employed an epoxy-­infusion technique when building the double-stepped hull. This method provides more strength in the hull while reducing overall weight, the company says. Powered by quad 350 hp outboards, the boat weighs 15,800 pounds (without engines) and reaches a top speed in the 70s, Scout says.

Standard features include an 80-gallon livewell, 15 flush-mount rod holders, a full transom walk-through platform (with optional dive ladder), a side boarding door, port and starboard floor fish boxes, a patented powder-coated hardtop with curved glass enclosure, a three-person aft-facing cockpit seat, Yamaha’s Helm Master joystick system, CZone digital switching, three Garmin 15-inch multifunction displays, a windlass, a generator and air conditioning. Options include a Seakeeper gyrostabilizer, a fish-box ice maker, underwater LED lights and a retractable awning.
