At 38 feet 6 inches long and a hair over 12 feet wide, Scout’s 380 LXF is a center console, but that’s like saying a Porsche Panamera is a station wagon. We ran the 380 through sloppy cruiser and workboat wakes in South Carolina’s Charleston Harbor. This nicely equipped boat took the largest wakes at well over 40 mph with no slamming. The very pronounced Carolina flare keeps crew dry. The hull is double-stepped to release the wetted running surface for high efficiency. Hull construction features epoxy-infused e-glass, hand-laid and vacuum-infused for maximum weight savings and strength, with no wood core to rot. At the bow, ultra-vinyl cushions flank a pop-up table that can be set higher for snacking, or lowered and fitted with a center cushion to form a larger sunbathing area. Just forward of the center console reside forward-facing loungers with foldable armrests. A recessed powder-coated security grab rail encircles the deck, within easy reach yet not obtrusive.
