Intrepid’s new 407 Panacea will be unveiled in three weeks.

Intrepid Powerboats will unveil the new 407 Panacea at the Nov. 1-5 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

“The 407 Panacea was born from customer requests for a smaller version of our versatile and luxurious 475 Panacea,” Ken Clinton, president of Intrepid Powerboats, said in a statement. “Building each Intrepid in collaboration with one customer at a time allows us to incorporate our boat owners’ ideas and keep our designs evolving along with their needs.”

The new model measures 40 feet and has a beam of 11 feet, one inch. Fuel capacity is 483 gallons and the 407 Panacea carries 60 gallons of fresh water.

The cockpit features wraparound bow seating with an electrically actuated backrest; there is foldaway seating aft. A swing-in dive door and folding ladder facilitate reboarding from the water.

The console has a windshield and a cabin below with a settee that converts to a berth with an adjustable-height table and overhead storage. The private head has a shower and the galley has solid-surface countertops, a refrigerator and a sink.

The boat rides on a single-step hull and has an integrated motor bracket that can accommodate as many as four outboards. It’s built with PVC foam coring and quad and uni-directional fiberglass fabrics that are infused and handlaid.
