Intrepid 400 CC

A massive 11’1″ beam makes for an extremely smooth and dry ride. If you’ve ever ridden in an Intrepid you know what we’re talking about. Stringent quality controls combined with vacuum bag/resin infusion technologies result in unmatched strength and lightweight attributes. Furthermore, Intrepid only uses specially developed low-density resins and precision engineered uni- and multi-directional fiberglass fabrics. Standard features sure to impress hardcore fishing enthusiasts include a gigantic 5’2″ forward in-floor insulated fishbox with macerator pumps, 9-foot gunnel rod lockers, livewells galore and 15 additional storage compartments. While you will find loads of standards, each Intrepid is built one at a time to achieve the form and function the anticipated owner desires. Popular options include fiberglass T-top, powdercoated pipe work, and the latest in electronic and navigational packages. Rig your dreamboat the way you want, for the way you fish.
