Luxurious comfort in a versatile center console.

By Craig Ritchie
Scout raises the bar on offshore luxury with its all-new 420 LXF, a beautifully-designed center console that’s built for enjoying every minute of summer.


  • LOA: 42'2"
  • Beam: 13'1"
  • Draft: 28"
  • Weight: 16,800 lbs.
  • Fuel Capacity: 500 gals.
  • Water Capacity: 69 gals.
  • Power: Quad 300-hp Mercury Verado
  • Price: $656,620 (boat only)

“With its unmatched performance and amazing first-class appointments above and below deck, the 420 LXF is ideal for anything the Great Lakes throw at you,” says Alan Lang, Scout’s director of sales and marketing.

The fun begins up in the bow, where luxurious wraparound seating features buttery-soft yet durable Brisa upholstery. An electric lift raises the bow floor panel to become a pedestal-mount table; raising it midway allows the addition of a removable cushion between the bow seats, converting this space into a huge sunpad. Twin forward-facing, heated  loungers in front of the console create a living room-like environment for conversation and an ideal spot to stretch out.

The console includes a large storage compartment up front with a starboard side locker for boat hooks, mops, lines and other gear. On the console’s port side, a large door opens to provide access to the air conditioned cabin below deck, complete with a fully-equipped galley, enclosed shower, spacious head compartment and two single beds that convert into a queen-plus berth.

Back on deck, three heated captain’s chairs face the modern glass helm, which features three standard 16-inch Garmin multifunction screens or three optional 17-inch screens. Joystick docking is standard with Yamaha or Mercury power, while a bowthruster is available as an option. Additional options include a 5-N-1 Performance Leaning Post with second row seating and a Seakeeper gyrostabilizer.

Scout’s attention to detail includes a standard cockpit refrigerator with an icemaker, a patent-pending bow eye camera, a rear-facing cockpit seat and a fold-down seat on the transom. A keychain fob allows for programming electronics on the boat, meaning a boater can power on/off pre-programmable features at the touch of a button. 

As a semi-custom boat, Scout’s 420 LXF gives boaters the option to add features like radar, satellite television, a cockpit grill or an electrically-operated cockpit sun shade as desired. 

“It’s a great dayboat that can also cruise, making it an ideal option for boaters on the Great Lakes,” Lang says.
