Read on for the answers.
Founded in 1983 in Opa-locka, Fla. today, Intrepid powerboats are manufactured in a facility in Largo, Fla., large enough to increase production from one yacht a year to three.

Tailor made for each customer, Intrepid offers a fuel-efficient smooth ride with thrilling performance, and the utmost in customer service both on and off the water.

Need a tender?
Did you know Intrepid builds the #1-selling yacht tender in the world? (One reason could be the way Intrepid’s strong, stepped hulls stand up to the pounding a tender takes while being towed behind a yacht.) The Intrepid powerboat models best suited for yacht tendering include the 375, 400, 407, 410, 430, 475 for mega/super yachts, and the 245 or 300 for smaller yachts.
And last but not least, Intrepid powerboats also builds fast, tough, safe vessels for local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and departments, which means they must meet the strictest standards for reliability and high performance. Rest assured, those same standards apply to every Intrepid powerboat manufactured.
The design, engineering, technology and innovation that goes into every Intrepid powerboat plus the emphasis on the customization and individuality of each model are why Intrepid powerboats from the 32-ft Intrepid center console powerboat to the 475 sport yacht are in such demand.
Don’t be surprised when you discover no two Intrepid powerboats for sale are alike. That’s because part of the company’s customization process includes letting buyers pick a color, any color, and figure out what they want painted (hull, metalwork, even the engines). Consoles, windshields, hard-tops, fabric patterns, brand of engine – are just some of the many options Intrepid offers owners to make the boat truly their own, which is why every Intrepid powerboat is one of a kind.
Because Intrepid is constantly redesigning and improving its line of powerboats, research, testing and quality control efforts are heightened. The quality and durability of everything from each boat’s fit, finish and performance down to the seating fabrics and the individual hand inspection of every hull, help ensure Intrepid’s zero-defect policy.
