Scout debuted its new flagship model — the 530 LXF — at the Miami Boat Show in February. This mega center-console tops a lineup of luxury sport-fishers that includes seven previous models from 25 to 42 feet.

The 530 LXF is built on Scout’s carbon-fiber, epoxy-infused double-stepped hull, previously used on the 380 and 420 LXFs. Scout offers various outboard packages for the 53, including four, five and even six engines.

Standard features include a Seakeeper 6 gyro stabilizer, a glass helm enclosure with electronically sliding windows (port and starboard), a cockpit island with a forward-facing bench seat, aft-facing bar stools that retract and stow, 16,000 BTU air conditioners for the cabin and helm, an electric sliding sun roof, heated helm seats, and more.

Anglers will appreciate the two 30-gallon cockpit livewells, twin transom-access doors, and Scout’s trademark optional articulating rocket launcher abaft the hardtop that raises or lowers rods.

The 530 carries 805 gallons of fuel and can handle up to 2,700 horsepower.
