438 Evolution - Intrepid Powerboats

438 Evolution


A cabin twice as large as an inboard of similar size? Heard. A racy, big water day boat for short hops? Heard again. And complete, world-class amenities befitting a luxury yacht so you can hit the islands for a week at a time? Yes, we heard all of it. The 438 Evolution boasts a helm equipped with the latest flat-screen electronics while an optional power sunroof overlooks wraparound club-style seating that inspires comfortable interaction. During the day, the state-of-the-art accommodations in the cabin are flooded with natural sunlight aboard this one of a kind sport yacht. You told us what you wanted. And we delivered the 438 Evolution as one very powerful, innovative and luxurious answer.

More information will be available soon. Contact us to stay informed!

To preserve the clean lines of the foredeck, we designed the optional windlass under an easily accessible hatch with plenty of storage below for your rode and chain.


False upholstered wall in the cabin that provides storage for the filler cushion for the forward settee when converting it to a 2nd queen berth.


Large hull side windows let natural light in and allow you not to miss a thing when down below. Whether you are underway or at anchor you can always enjoy the view and when you want privacy simply, pull down the built-in dual privacy shades.

We take advantage of dead space overhead by building in integrated overhead storage both port and starboard sides of the forward cabin.

This large forward settee area not only has enough room for you and your guests to gather around the table for dinner, but it also converts to an additional berth forward with the optional Hi-Lo table and filler cushion.


Electrically actuated hideaway Smart Television.


This galley has all you need with solid-surface countertops, sink, and a single-burner stove top. Stainless steel lined, self-closing Blum drawers give you plenty of room for the proper utensils to complete your cooking experience along with a slide out garbage can.


Port side cabinet which houses the AC Panel and controls, microwave, and (2) drawer refrigeration which can be configured as (2) refrigerators or (1) refrigerator and (1) freezer drawer.


Head with separate shower includes a built-in seat, natural light and ventilation. Plenty of storage for towels and toiletries.


Master stateroom with queen-sized berth, which comes with a hanging locker, night stand, two drawers and access to the head compartment.


The all new console makes space for even the largest of electronics and comes with
all the conveniences of cup holders, glovebox


The Ocean Elite helm seat w/flip up racing bolters and footrests.


Aft facing seat w/storage drawers in the side or optional refrigerator or icemaker.


Large, portside L-shaped lounge seating elevated for improved visibility from the bridge deck area with additional storage underneath.


Optional integrated electric grill w/sink and storage cabinet.


Integrated steps for easy bow access.


Mechanical access hatches to rigging, pumps, etc.


Access to foam insulated fish box/storage.


Hull side dive door, an Intrepid trademark, with our latest lift up/rotate design that doesn’t take up valuable cockpit space while in the open position. And, it also allows for easy dockside boarding.


Large access to the generator for easy maintenance.


Mechanical access hatches to all transom rigging, pumps, etc.


Port and Starboard aft above deck storage or optional rigged baitwells with windows makes fishing this aft cockpit more convenient and roomy by not stealing valuable cockpit space.


The optional integrated folding rear seat is comfortable and convenient. It easily folds away and disappears when it’s time to fight some fish in the aft cockpit.


Standard dual dive platforms with a single boarding ladder. This fulfills the “means of solo re-boarding” which is a recommendation of the American Boat and Yacht Council; a safety essential other builders forego.

    With boater-driven innovations and technologies, it’s no surprise that Mercury leads the pack in marine engines. With industry-leading features like electronic fuel injection, on-board digital monitoring that protects your engine, and a total commitment to corrosion protection, Mercury engines have consistently set the bar for clean, quiet performance and low fuel consumption.

  • Yamaha

    The Yamaha Advantage. Reliability. Performance. Innovation. It all starts right here. And that’s exactly why so many boaters won’t trust anything but a Yamaha out on the water. Yamaha Outboards has proudly operated in the U.S. market for over 30 years. In that time, our engineers have become known for their relentless pursuit of a more satisfying boating and ownership experience for customers. As a result, Yamaha Outboards have become synonymous with innovation, performance and legendary reliability.

  • Suzuki

    Suzuki Marine’s newest outboard, the DF350A, represents the pinnacle in outboard design and engineering. A powerful V6 engine with 4.4 liter displacement and a full complement of newly designed components takes full advantage of a high-performance 12.0-to-1 compression ratio to deliver both exhilarating speed and powerful torque. This new engine is matched with Suzuki’s innovative Dual Prop System to provide added “grip” underwater for impressive acceleration and amazing tracking both in turns and when holding course. Suzuki Precision Control drive-by-wire throttle and shift control puts you in control with ease and confidence.
