Summerville, SC – Scout Boats, the leading independent marine manufacturer, unveiled multiple new innovations aboard its LXF fleet, along with two new models to the line-up during its annual dealer meeting in Charleston, SC September 25-26, 2017. New models include the 355 LXF, 235 XSF and 251 XSS. The new innovations include bow-mounted cameras, heated helm seats and hardtop-mounted solar panel battery chargers - all available options on its LXF fleet – and a new two-toned Cayenne interior upholstery package available on select models.


“Our R&D department has been working tirelessly to bring these exciting new innovations to our line,” said Scout CEO & Founder Steve Potts. “Our LXF series is the example of luxury married with performance, and we feel it’s incredibly important to continue to not only innovate our models but to also provide the types of innovations that ‘wow’ our customers and exceed their expectations.”


“Couple these new innovations with our new model debuts of the 380 LXF earlier this year, the 355 LXF, 235 XSF and 251 XSS – and the work we’re doing on our new 530 LXF flagship that will debut Spring 2018, we continue to move the industry forward with state-of-the-art innovations for the discerning boat buyer who wants only the best,” Potts added.
