2001 37 Intrepid Walk Around with transverse stepped hull, 22 1/2-degree transom deadrise, and vacuum-bagged construction responds to engine power effortlessly, like waves breaking on a pristine shore. The transverse step in the 377 takes performance up a notch. Steps create a vacuum to reduce drag and get the boat on plane quickly. At speed, the step allows the hull to ride on specific points, and this wetted surface gives the boat directional stability from idle to top end.
If you enjoy the intrinsic thrills of being noticed when you pass other boats, or when squeezing into a tight space with barely a ripple, you will love this Intrepid 377 Walkaround.
The 377 is manufactured with hand-laid, knitted, uni and bidirectional fabrics, Kevlar, and PVC foam coring of various densities. Vacuum-bagging achieves a high-tech level glass-to-resin ratio. Liners are bonded to the hull to reduce upkeep and increase stiffness. No wood is used anywhere.
The 11-foot, 6-inch beam creates a wide, workable cockpit for fishing, diving, and other water sports with deep fish wells, a transom door, dual dive platforms, and a boarding ladder with hot and cold fresh water washdown.
The cabin has a full-size berth forward, a settee to port and an in-line galley and head with shower to starboard-a great combination for traveling or weekend island hopping.
Lift a hatch anywhere aboard and you will see cosmetic and seakeeping detailing. The underside of each hatch is gel-coated, and all hatch pulls flush lock to create a solid connection to the rubber gasket that seals out rattles and water. Hinges and stainless-steel cleats also are flush-mounted, and stern-line and spring-line cleats pass through fairleads. A deep, interconnecting gutter trail leads from every hatch to 3-inch-wide scuppers in the full-height transom. The transom door locks in place with the kind of hardware you'd expect to see on a 60-footer.
Intrepid manufactures its cushions with Starboard inserts to eliminate rot, which can damage wood supports. Long life is further ensured on the coaming bolsters by mounting them one inch below the covering boards, to prevent foot scuffs from marring the edges when boarding from the side.
Intrepid is known for unparalleled quality construction throughout their boats. They use tinned wiring in the electrical systems for better corrosion resistance, then neatly paint each terminal end with liquid electrical tape to seal out moisture and insulate against vibration. Wiring is neatly bundled, well-secured, and easy to trace. This is important because every Intrepid is built to order.
