VIDEO: Intrepid sells 47-footer with quad-powered outboards


Intrepid Powerboats of Largo, Fla., recently sold its highest-horsepower outboard-powered boat ever — the 475 Panacea with four Seven Marine 557-hp V8 outboards.

Yes, that’s 2,228 horses.

“We’re still in the process of dialing it in, but it looks like we’ll get a top speed of 73 mph with a cruise of 55 mph,” Intrepid Powerboats president Ken Clinton said.

Clinton said the boat-engine package will appeal most “to the person who wants what nobody else has — the person who wants the biggest and the baddest they can get their hands on.”
