With the boat show season now behind us, I want to thank everyone for an amazing Miami International Boat Show. I believe it was reported that the show's attendance was down this year by 6%....but not in our booth. Not only was the new 475' Panacea a huge hit, we sold some with triple and quad Seven Marine engine packages so we will have some really cool footage and data for all of you in the upcoming months. We would also like to thank everyone who came out to see us at the Palm Beach Boat Show as well. Though it is a smaller show, the benefit of being able to spend additional time with our customers was a real plus.
Mercury Marine announced the introduction of white painted motors coming this spring (my guess is in May even though they say April). We are proud to say that we were directly involved with the engineering team from Mercury, giving our input as we have been offering white motors for quite some time. This is definitely a win for our customers as it is much more efficient for Mercury to do this than Intrepid which in turn will be much less expensive for you in the future.
The Vision Baitwell Helm Seat with the wrap around glass window has been a real big hit in all of our larger boats which then created a need for a smaller version for our 327 model and I am happy to say that it is done and it came out great!
It has been a really tough winter (to say the least) for our Intrepid owners up north and I know you are all chomping at the bit to get your boats in the water, and rightfully so. Please know that if you have any issues or questions after peeling your covers off know that you can reach out to us at anytime by calling our Customer Care representative Walt Putman at (727)-548-1260 Ext. 242 or emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org. It does not matter if you are the 1st owner or the 10th owner, you're an Intrepid owner, and a part of the Intrepid family and we want to help you. Just let us know what we can do to help.
