The first in Scout’s new luxury crossover series of boats, the 350 LXZ delivers Scout’s robust construction with an exciting new side-console layout that’s packed with high-end amenities. It’s a boat equally at home entertaining a crowd as it is chasing fish.
What’s new about the 350 LXZ? By placing the helm console on the starboard side, Scout gives the boat a traditional walkaround feel, but with portside access to a bow lounge and a fantastic setup belowdecks. With the joystick control at the helm and the twin flush-mounted Garmin displays in the dash, the boat is easy to operate around the docks and underway. The twin displays show both navigation and sonar, plus all the ship’s systems and digital switching at the touch of a button.
The fully enclosed helm and passenger lounge area keep the captain and crew protected no matter the weather conditions, and the open bow lounge and aft cockpit seating keep the sun-worshippers happy in the fresh air. With a spacious and well-appointed cabin belowdecks, the 350 LXZ checks all the right boxes for an overnight trip.
To handle all the state-of-the art gear aboard the boat, such as the Lewmar anchor windlass, optional Seakeeper gyro, electric grill and air conditioning, the 350 LXZ employs a truly innovative lithium-ion battery system instead of a traditional genset. The lithium-ion battery bank can run all the features on the boat for a full day of boating before it needs to be recharged, which can be done via the alternators in under two hours. It also has shore power and solar panels. Plus, it’s quiet and doesn’t emit exhaust fumes.
The 350 LXZ features a double-stepped hull that gives it a great running attitude, and its sharp 24-degree transom deadrise helps it knife through rough seas. Scout reports that with the triple 400 hp Mercury package, this 10,000-pound boat is capable of speeds exceeding 65 mph, with cruising speeds in the 40s.
When you look at the profile of the 350 LXZ, you’ll note the beautiful lines that are classic Scout. But after stepping aboard, you’ll realize it’s clearly a boat for the future.
- Infused hull has a high strength-to-weight ratio, providing a stout offshore vessel that has best-in-class efficiency.
- Lithium-ion power system replaces the traditional generator to provide quiet, safe, exhaust-free power all day long.
- Bow lounge comfortably seats four people and, with its high freeboard and recessed grab rails, is safely secure.
