The Scout 330 LXF brings a high level of luxury to the field of saltwater center-console fishing machines. Posh amenities such as twin high-back helm seats, comfy forward loungers, a retractable bow dining table, and a lounger on the forward console will delight cruising guests.

There’s also Scout’s undeniable reputation for style reflected in a gracefully sweeping sheer, Carolina-style bow flare, and classic tumblehome of the stern quarters—elements that will capture the attention of envious onlookers. Twin Yamaha 425 XTO outboards vault the 330 LXF to plane in 5 seconds, and from zero to 30 mph in 8.2 seconds. The 330 LXF tops out at over 66 mph.

You can expect precise, confident cornering at speed. The double-stepped hull lifts with little bow rise during hole shot, and knifes smoothly through rough seas while maintaining a near-level trim angle. Epoxy-infusion construction results in optimized weight and strength, and delivers a solid feel and long-term durability.

A hardtop integrates with the full-height tempered-glass windshield, side windows and the center console. An optional retractable rocket launcher holds five rods on the aft edge of the hardtop and tilts down electrically to allow deployment of a motorized sunshade.

A Yamaha CL7 display monitors the outboards and interfaces with the Yamaha Helm Master joystick system. A workstation abaft the helm seating can be equipped with either a grill or a mini fridge. It includes raw- and freshwater washdown spigots, as well as three tackle drawers. A Yeti Tundra 65 slides out from underneath.

The transom bulkhead includes six rod holders, a 21-gallon covered livewell in the port quarter, and a flip-out transom bench. Twin insulated 132-quart in-sole fish lockers bracket the aft deck. A transom gate in the starboard quarter offers access to the swim platform, and a beefy inward-opening door is built into the port side of the spacious cockpit.
