Innovation Has No Rival - The Intrepid 438 Evolution - A Study in Customer-Driven Innovation

Industry-leading innovation is the hallmark of the legendary Intrepid Powerboats® brand. For nearly 40 years the company has led the way, delivering luxurious, custom-crafted outboards that set new standards in marine design, engineering and performance. It’s a legacy of innovation often imitated, but never equaled. Now comes the 438 Evolution.



An amazingly versatile and powerful outboard sport yacht, the all-new 438 Evolution is a showcase of ingenious design innovations. Step aboard and you’ll take the helm of a powerful luxury cruiser unlike any other boat on the water, with a luxurious cabin twice as large as an inboard of similar size.

This sleek, open water performance boat is ideal for entertaining family and friends on short hops and day cruises. It also boasts the world-class, live-aboard amenities of a luxury yacht designed for those who love to island hop for weeks at a time, in uncompromising comfort and style.

Adjustable helm seating features racing-style flip-up bolsters with space for, refrigerator or icemaker underneath. The large console can accommodate dual 22” navigation screens, with room for bridge deck storage, glove box, and cup holders.

Elevated for improved visibility, the spacious bridge deck features luxurious L-shaped lounge seating with additional storage underneath. The expansive aft cockpit and bow with roomy sunpad offer plenty of places for family and friends to relax and enjoy the scene.

An optional electric aft sun shade provides coverage for the entire cockpit where aft-facing seating and an optional grill stand with a sink and refrigerator facilitate al fresco cooking and dining.

The industry’s most advanced technology and fabrication techniques combine with Intrepid’s signature stepped hull to deliver the incomparably smooth, dry ride and sure-footed handling that inspire confidence in any captain and put Intrepid in a class by itself. Your choice of triple-engine power packages will have you running efficiently. And with 550 gallons of fuel, you’ll go farther faster.

Whether diving wrecks in the Great Lakes or snorkeling reefs in the islands, the 438 Evolution makes it easy to go overboard through a hull side dive door that lifts up and out of the way to free up more space in the cockpit, then features a step ladder and grab rails that let swimmers climb back aboard with ease.

Sport fishing enthusiasts will marvel at the customizable array of storage lockers, tackle boxes, rod holders and fish boxes, plus a custom folding rear bench seat flanked by lighted, above-deck baitwells with windows.


Step below and you’ll discover the world-class amenities of a spacious cabin, thoughtfully designed, styled and equipped for long-distance travel and luxurious overnight stays.

Illuminated by large hull side windows and vented skylights, a surprising amount of headroom adds to the expansive ambiance. Updated styling includes premium European hardware and cabinetry. You’ll entertain in style from a spacious galley that provides abundant counter space and storage, dual refrigerator/freezer drawers, microwave and sink.

The luxurious master state room with queen berth enjoys views through two large hull side windows, and a roomy head compartment featuring a separate shower, natural light and ventilation. There’s also a built-in seat, vanity, sink, and plenty of storage space for toiletries and towels.

The large wraparound settee with a new hideaway TV sets the stage for large gatherings, then converts to a second queen berth at the touch of button, offering overnight guests all the comforts of home, aboard your new home on the sea.


Nearly every boatbuilder offers some level of “customization.” Intrepid invites owners into a collaborative, one-of-a-kind, one-at-a-time boatbuilding process that is simply unequalled. An Intrepid is more than a powerboat. It is a work of art, a bespoke vessel custom designed, hand-crafted, and individually equipped to realize each owner’s vision of the ultimate boating experience.

As Intrepid Powerboats President, Ken Clinton puts it, “The wait-time for a custom Intrepid surprises people at first, but our owners end up enjoying the journey so much that it ends up being a huge positive. That unique level of personalization elevates the whole boat owning experience. Having it your way is the real luxury.”

“The collaborative boatbuilding process also makes us good listeners,” says Clinton. “Customers come to us with their ideas, and it has always been our mission to make them happen. Our mindset is ‘whatever it takes’ for them and their family to get even more enjoyment out of their boat. At Intrepid, that unparalleled level of customer satisfaction through our one-of-a-kind, one-at-a-time approach to customization is Job #1.”


Once you receive your new custom Intrepid, your relationship with the boatbuilder doesn’t end – far from it! Intrepid owners enjoy a lifetime of personalized customer care and support. Whether it’s the day you first step aboard or 20 years and 20,000 nautical miles later, the company goes above and beyond to take care of its owners with the world-class customer care they have come to expect from Intrepid.
