The Intrepid 375 Center Console (40’3″ LOA, 10’6″ beam) goes farther and faster on an innovative new hull that features a stylish new shear, reverse transom and wider chines. The 375 CC’s increased surface area provides greater support and stability for today’s heavier four-stroke outboard engines. Engine options range from twin 350-horsepower engines to twin Seven Marine 627-horsepower outboards, with top speeds from 58 to 72 mph depending upon the engines installed. The console with forward seating opens to port for access to a spacious head compartment with vanity and sink. Port and starboard storage compartments are integral to the gunwale and forward seating areas. Anchor storage and windlass compartments are on the bow beneath a foredeck hatch cover. The inward opening side entry door is comfortably positioned away from the engines for safe use of the stout boarding ladder that neatly stows beneath a hatch cover inside the hull-side door.
Owners can rig their Intrepid for the fishing, cruising or diving experience desired. The 375 CC’s smooth, dry ride is the result of the transverse stepped-hull design. Vacuum bagged, hand-laid, knitted uni- and multi-directional, fiberglass laminates, foam-cored hull sides, and wood-free construction provide unprecedented strength, rigidity and safety without performance-robbing weight.
