I would like to start this month’s newsletter by asking how you’re doing and hoping that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. It’s times like these that we realize what the most important things are in life – our family and friends. Please know that we are one big Intrepid Family, and we are here for you during this difficult time.
Here at the Largo, Florida, factory we are working at a smaller scale in order to keep within CDC guidelines for workplace safety. We had the Pinellas County Sherriff’s Department come through our facility a few days ago to do a workplace inspection and they found that we were doing a great job at working safe and smart. The safety of our employees is first and foremost, and I am extremely proud and grateful for how everyone here has taken this seriously and shown how well we can still work safely together, even under these extraordinary circumstances.
The same goes for our Dania Sales and Service Teams. Our Sales Team is working remotely with a small team in the office and scheduling private, one-on-one appointments with customers to keep everyone’s health and safety our #1 priority. We have people scheduling times to come in and see our new 409 Valor which was supposed to debut at the Palm Beach boat show. If you were looking forward to the reveal of the new 409 Valor, you can still see it at our sales office. Just call ahead and we will be sure to provide a safe environment for you to check out this exciting new addition to our lineup! As you’ll see below, we even have one ready for sale.
Our Service Team is also here to provide any help you need with your Intrepid. Many people are using this downtime to do spring check-ups and maintenance. Getting out on the water with your immediate family is actually one of the safest things you can do right now and we will continue to support you with the same level of customer service that you’ve come to expect from us. If you need us, call us. We’re here.
I also want to send a big shout-out to all of you calling or coming in to order new boats at this time. Now more than ever, we so appreciate the support of our Intrepid Family and the new boat sales that help us provide for our families here, as well. We all feel blessed to be able to continue to do what we do and that only happens with your support and we cannot thank you enough.
Good news for anyone looking for immediate availability. We have a rare situation with two new boats available right now at our Harbour Towne sales office in Dania. Normally, these boats would have been sold at the Palm Beach show. Instead, we have a new 409 Valor and a 407 Nomad FE all tricked out and ready for immediate delivery!
Thanks again for everyone’s continued support. Stay safe – at home and on the water. And please let us know anything we can do as we continue to support you!
Best wishes to everybody in our Intrepid Family for good health and safety during these trying times. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were all enjoying ourselves at the Miami International Boat Show. What a difference a month can make. We are in historic times. Our state has come to a virtual standstill because of the COVID-19 virus. The safety and well-being of everyone in our extended family is of the utmost importance to us, so let’s keep healthy and happy as best we can. This applies to our customers, as well as our employees and the vendors with whom we work.
It was disappointing to learn that the Palm Beach Boat Show has been postponed. We finished building our new 409 Valor in time for this show and were really looking forward to showing it off for the world to see in Palm Beach. We do, however, have the boat debuting at our Sales Office in Harbour Towne Marina. I recently had the opportunity to run a sea trial in it and all I can say is WOW! She does everything that we expected, and more!
Our Sales Team is working remotely and are always available for any questions you may have about any of our models. Our new website offers lots of information, as well. It has virtual tours, deck plans, picture galleries, and details about the one-of-a-kind boat building, customization and customer service offered only here at Intrepid. You can even start building your dream boat with the Build Your Own feature on each model page on the website.
Please remember that we are here for you during this difficult time. It’s always good to hear from our friends, so feel free to send us an email or give us a call at any time. We look forward to seeing you as soon as possible.

We’ve had lots of changes to the way we all lead our lives in the past few weeks. Our world is certainly a different place than it was just a month ago. Each day seems to bring new challenges, but together our Intrepid family will weather this storm in good spirits and good health.
We’ve been in business for over 37 years now and have faced tough times before, so let’s all keep good thoughts going for a timely and effective end to the Coronavirus pandemic. We will come out on the other end of all of this as a stronger nation.
In the meantime, our boats are a great refuge from the days’ troubles. They are one place where things can be carried on as normal with our families, and we are here to help you do that as best we can. If you have questions or concerns about anything to do with your Intrepid, just pick up the phone or send an email so we can figure out how best to assist you.
If you’re not yet signed up for our Owner’s Portal, this is a great time to do that! The Intrepid Forum is available for networking with fellow Intrepid enthusiasts. It’s an excellent way to catch up with likeminded people and share remembrances of some of your Intrepid experiences on the water. We’ve posted an invitation to share fond memories on the Forum. You can submit questions about your boats there as well. We’re also available for phone calls, so please feel free to call our Largo factory at (727) 548-1260. My extension is 229 and Felicia Johnson, our Customer Care manager, is receiving calls at her extension 242. Please sign up and use this medium as another way to stay connected.
We continue to work on our video owner’s manuals. To date we have virtual guidebooks of the systems and operations for the boats listed below. You can view them at these links:
We’ve recorded video for the 407 Nomad FE and 477 Evolution, so they are next to be posted. Stay tuned for their debut!
We’ve been taking good care of our customers since 1983. Our promise is to continue doing that for many more years to come. I look forward to a return to normalcy so we can all get together again sometime soon.
