Too much to list.... she is BAD ASS... I got 63mph at 5700 rpms with minimal trim. I’ll respond later with rehab.

Love your boat! Mine was the same color with black bottom paint. My hull had some imperfections from previous owner trying to match paint. I had entire hull repainted with a custom olive green/grey. Removed bottom paint and painted it a white to match top sides.

yep, rember when it sold. Your color choice looks great, could pass for original intrepid color as they had one similar then. Mine was in pretty good shape when I bought it, so I found the best fiberglass shop in Tampa and had them go from bow to stern and correct every imperfection. I'm sure you are aware, these boats in great condition get more attention on the water than anything I have ever encountered. They are timeless.

I was seriously considering doing exactly what you did. Mind sharing the $ break down. PM if you don’t want to post in public. You got yourself a hell of a boat.

These particular SH Intrepid hull designs are probably the best non stepped hull ever made. Amazing...and man are they fast. I'll share the story of when exactly I became a lifelong Intrepid guy. 1987 Miami: My dad just bought a brand spanking new 30' Scarab Sport. Twin 235 Evinrudes and an arch. A friend of his who owned a different construction company had a new 1986 30' Intrepid with 235 Evinrudes and a t top. That Intrepid would smoke his Scarab Sport all the way to Bimini. EVERY TIME. The Intrepid was such a bad ass boat. I remember how pissed my dad was that he even used to say the hull of his Scarab had a "hook" in the keel. Anyhow...true story.

thanks for for the love arctic, She looks like she came out of the mold 24 years ago and I have all the receipts to show for it. I've got my eye on another and if the price is right on it, she will be for sale.

Your boat’s gorgeous. Love the colors and the whole package. Question for you guys with these 30 footers - I have the 26/28 (which I’m slowly refurbing), is the hull similar or unrelated?

edit: by similar I mean same bottom and beam but 4’ longer.
