Most boats are built for speed. Others are built of safe travels and luxury. Well, feast your eyes on the 475 Panacea from Intrepid Powerboats. It boasts incredible key features like high-end cabinetry, air conditioning, a VIP lounge, LED lighting, alfresco dining area, an oversized sunpad state-of-the-art helm seats, and other expansive cockpit features and luxurious accommodations. Yeah, you could have yourself a full-blown party on this thing, whether you're sailing through Miami, Florida or the Caribbean.
All that fancy stuff aside, the Intrepid 475 sport yacht has also got the speed to match! The quad outboard seven marine engine is definitely no joke, able to take the Intrepid boat up to 75 MPH at 200 GPH (gallons per hour) -- with the right engine and propeller tweaks, of course. This thing can give any powerboat on the market a run for its money. But don't just take our word for it. Check out the boat in action, and you'll see what we mean.
Damn. Can you imagine cutting up the water in one of these bad boys? It definitely looks the part, but just listen to the sound of that engine, too. Simply put, this thing is an aquatic beast.
If you're looking for a more extensive tour of what the Intrepid 475 Panacea has to offer, from the center console, hard surface countertops, and spacious V-berth beds to the fiberglass construction and expansive storage lockers, this next video has got you covered.
It's nice to see what the boat is packing on deck, but I'm guessing you were already sold when you saw what the boat could do on the water. Speaking of being sold, this thing definitely isn't cheap, as you can probably imagine, going for around $800,000 for a newer model.
Yeah, I'm not afraid to admit that that's WAY out of my price range. I probably wouldn't even be able to afford one of the engines. But hey, it never hurts to dream, right?
