Intrepid Continues Building Boats The Way They SHOULD Be

Published: Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Intrepid 345 Walkaround

The 345 Walkaround is a smaller version of the yacht that customers of Intrepid have dreamed of owning. However, as you’ll learn, it’s quite big on the features and luxury you usually find only on Intrepid’s larger cabin models. In fact, this boat was actually inspired by customer requests for roomy overnight accommodations in a smaller model and the 34-foot 345 Walkaround delivers with maximized space and guaranteed comfort.

With a well-equipped galley, separate head with shower and large forward berth area, it’s perfectly designed to be a comfortable overnight boat. But it’s also the ideal day boat with amenities such as a forward u-shaped settee that has been designed to maximize space and includes a hi-low table that can become a filler. When the berth is not in use, a discreet compartment stores the filler cushion out of sight. A hull-side swing-in dive door with folding ladder makes water access easy.

In the helm, you’ll discover an Ocean Elite helm seat with FRP base, an aft-facing seat beside the helm console, and large seating to inspire interaction. For fishability, the 345 Walkaround features above deck corner bait wells in the transom and a folding rear seat that disappears for even more space.

Like all Intrepids, the 345 Walkaround is designed with the revolutionary step hull for unparalleled stability and an impressively smooth, wave-absorbing ride. Of course, it can be custom styled and rigged through Intrepid's one-of-a-kind customization process ensuring you get exactly the boat you want.

The Intrepid 375 Nomad SE

The 375 Nomad brings the best of Intrepid boats aboard one amazing center console. By bringing all this thinking aboard one boat, it is incredibly versatile, luxurious, innovative, stylish and filled with clever, thoughtful features. For example, in the bow, you’ll find the versatility of the hi-low actuating table that adjusts to three different settings and complements plush wraparound seating. It can sit flush with the cockpit for more walking room, become a filler for more space to lounge in the forward seating, or even raise to a full height table. Electric backrests tilt up on each side of the bow seating to create loungers, while a comfortable bucket seat for two in front of the forward console neatly houses an 80-quart cooler underneath.

A full-height windshield with wiper protects from the elements and adds to the stylish, sheer lines of the 375 Nomad SE. In the helm, an all-new console houses the largest of electronics and, with the simple push of a button, a self-actuating sole elevates four inches of additional height for better visibility. Rest assured, as you take the helm, you will explore the seas in confidence thanks to the revolutionary step hull that delivers the smoothest, wave-crushing ride at any speed.

The 375 Nomad SE is uniquely designed with a helm seat station that is fully customizable to your needs with your choice of a refrigerator, drawers, ice maker, or a tackle station. It also includes the option for a sink and faucet set into a solid-surface countertop with either a cutting board or an electric grill instead. Below it are three drawer options for stowing tackle or a 60-quart Frigid Rigid cooler that conveniently slides out for easy access.

Thoughtfully designed amenities are found from bow to stern. The head, for instance, is accessed through a side entry and features 6 feet, 3 inches of headroom, a flush toilet, solid-surface countertop, sink and freshwater faucet, and pull-out shower. For ease of access in and out of the water, the swing-in dive door with fold out ladder is an Intrepid staple. And, when the fishing heats up, the fold-away rear bench seat adds extra space and the transom includes twin 37-gallon livewells and a 52-gallon below deck livewell to carry more bait.

Once you return back to the dock, an optional Vetus bow thruster will help you put the 375 Nomad SE into the tightest of spaces.
