    Captain's Report

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Choose an on-the-water activity from fishing to cruising and Intrepid says the 407 Panacea can accommodate.

    Mission Statement

    The Intrepid 407 Panacea is the direct result of customer feedback. Intrepid had multiple requests for a smaller version of the 475 Panacea, so voila, the 407 was born. Intrepid calls it a dayboat that’s also a “stayboat” and says it can cruise, fish, dive, and perform during a fun-filled day on the water.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The Intrepid 407 Panacea test boat was customized with a T-top with integral windshield. She has a 22-degree deadrise at the transom.

    Distinguishing Features

      Custom Boat Builder. While Intrepid has nine basic hulls from 24’ to 47’ (7.32 m to 14.3 m), much of what goes inside is custom-made for each owner.

      Factory-Direct. Intrepid has no dealers or dealer mark-up.

      Innovation. Intrepid has lead the industry in its class in terms of innovation. For example, hull side doors, which are now available in even low price-point boats, started with Intrepid.

      Two Seats in One. Both chaise-style and bench-style seats are available on the trunk cabin lounge.

      Port Side Door. This door makes it easier to land a big fish or enter the water with dive gear. It is now the new launching point for watersports.

      Power Boarding Steps. Fold out of the port gunwale to make it easier to step aboard from the docks.

      Full Plexiglas Glass Wraparound Windshield. Provides good protection from spray and blends seamlessly into the hardtop structure.

      Cabin. It has 6’3” (1.9 m) of headroom, a dinette convertible for sleeping, a mini galley, and a wet head.

      High Performance. With triple 400-hp outboards, the 407 Panacea tops 60 mph.

      Stepped Hull. The 407 Panacea has a single step and a special stern bottom design.

    Features Inspection

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The Intrepid 407 Panacea has space for a crowd both forward and aft.

    The Cockpit

    The 54 sq. ft. (5.01 sq. m) cockpit has plenty of room for several anglers to be fighting fish at once, or for a large group going on a picnic. Likewise, for scuba divers, there is more than adequate room for tanks and gear.

    For those days when cruising is on the agenda, the cockpit is so big that even deck chairs can be brought aboard. There is storage space below deck and perhaps some folding chair designs -- like director’s chairs -- can be stowed there.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The 407 Panacea’s cockpit can used as a wide-open space for fishing -- or for having a cocktail party at the dock.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The optional aft bench can be quickly deployed to provide seating for at least four people.

    Side Door. To port is something of an Intrepid signature feature -- a hullside door that opens inward. A hatch in the deck opens to reveal a sturdy boarding ladder that folds out and overboard. Since Intrepid invented the concept in pleasure boats it is little wonder that they are ahead of curve on re-boarding ladders for it.

    New Launching Venue. It is this side of the boat from which watersports are launched -- not the transom. Intrepid has figured out that with triple or quad outboards on the transom, swimming, diving, and tow sports can all be handled more safely and easily from the side door.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The door to port in the cockpit is equipped with heavy-duty stainless steel hardware, including the latch and hinge.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    When it’s opened, the door folds cleanly into the port bulwark so as to provide as little obstruction to passage as possible.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The boarding ladder folds into this compartment in the cockpit deck just inboard of the side door.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    When deployed, the ladder extends deep into the water. Note the rugged construction and wide treads.

    For Fishy Folks. Our test boat had a couple of worthwhile options, the padded bolsters and a 4’11” (1.5 m) aft bench seat that folds out from the transom. In each stern quarter, there are optional 41-gallon (155 L) livewells that are finished in blue and have rounded corners, aeration systems, and front windows.

    Aft, behind the transom, there’s room to walk in front of the outboard engine wells, plus there are two small steps outboard on each side to aid boarding from the rear.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The 407 Panacea’s test boat has two livewells in the stern quarters. The curved window in the side adds a compelling design element to the cockpit as well as making it easy to keep an eye on the bait.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea freshwater flush
    The arrow at left indicates the hatch for the freshwater flush of the engines. There is 28” to 30” (71 to 76 cm) of cockpit depth, and on the cap rail is the standard freshwater shower. The pull-up cleat is 9-1/2” (24 cm).
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The motor well has enough space to walk in front of the trio of outboards and we appreciated the clean rigging of these Mercury Racing engines.

    Cockpit Accessories

    The 407 Panacea comes with six 9 ½” (24.1 cm) pull-up cleats as well as six rod holders properly positioned in the caprail. For dayboating, there’s a pull-up freshwater shower to starboard and, to port, two retractable steps fold out of the inwale with the push of a button to make it easier to board.

    Our test model was also equipped with an engine-flush system in its own locker in the starboard gunwale. Hatches in the cockpit deck open the macerated fishbox to starboard. There is also a freshwater outlet next to the side door and a raw water one on the opposite side.

    The Fisher Panda 4 kW diesel generator is forward under a hatch. Intrepid has made the right decision for safety reasons, to have a diesel generator, even though it necessitates a dedicated fuel tank for it.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Push a button and these steps fold out of the port inwale to facilitate boarding from a high dock. Because the side door opens inward, it is ideal for boarding from floating docks.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Another engineering marvel is the clamshell-type transom seat that is hidden until wanted, freeing up space in the cockpit for fishing or other activities.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The transom seat easily opens up into a large seat to comfortably seat three to four people.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The key to the comfort, in addition to the width and padding, is the slight angle at which the seatback is tilted, just like what we find in most household or office chairs. It is not the vertical back that we find in most transom seats.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    All of the hatches in the cockpit deck open on stainless steel pneumatic struts and have solid latches. The large hatch at right accesses pumps and seacocks. The one at the left has the Fischer Panda 4 kW diesel generator. The one at the top of the picture is the insulated, macerated fishbox.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    All of the hatches close on thick rubber gaskets that help keep out water and prevent rattles. The deep channels around the hatch drain off water overboard. The latches are the twist-and-lock variety.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    This is a fine example of a properly laid out mechanical access compartment. The shutoffs for the seacocks couldn’t be easier to reach. The bilge pump is in a sump. What is harder to see are the solid discs of composite around the thru-hull fittings.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Having an onboard freshwater flush system makes it easier to properly maintain the boat’s three outboard engines.

    The Cockpit Galley

    At the forward end of the cockpit, the 407 Panacea has a galley just abaft the helm seats. Beneath the hinged fiberglass cover are a stainless steel sink and grill and in the base are the optional refrigerator and icemaker and a pull-out cooler. In the port side of the galley, a compartment opens, and out pops a wastebasket.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    When closed, the cockpit galley has a full counter on top that could be used for rigging tackle, or a place to put out food and drinks when in party mode.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    When opened for entertaining, the galley has a stainless steel sink and grill. Note the countertop insert that goes over the sink in order to create a food prep counter to each side of the Barbie.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Here we see the captains’ chairs with the bolsters in the down position and Captain Steve folding up the port armrest. The seats move fore and aft at the touch of a button. The cut outs help keep the rider’s back cool.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    With minimal effort, he folds up the bolsters and notice the footrest below.

    The Helm

    The front side of the galley has twin captain’s chairs with foldup bolsters and armrests. We like that Intrepid includes a fold-out footrest, but we wish there was a separate one for each person.

    The dash on our test boat had two 19” (48.3 cm) multi-function displays with a 7” (17.8 cm) Mercury VesselView screen below. For backup, there is a compass on top of the panel.

    The stainless steel steering wheel is on a tilt base with the controls for the optional bow thruster to port. The Mercury Digital Shift and throttle are to starboard as are the buttons for the Bennett trim tabs. The binnacle controls are at an ergonomic angle.

    A glovebox is ahead of the starboard seat. We were impressed with how seamlessly the Plexiglas windshield fit into the custom hardtop structure, and only minor distortions were seen in the bend. We’d like to see a vent in the windshield at the top to give the helmsman a breeze.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The helm on our test boat had room for two 19” (48.3 cm) multifunction displays, but on subsequent 407 Panacea boats, the raised section in the center of the panel will be removed to make room for 22” (55.9 cm) screens.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The wraparound windshields will help keep the owner and companion cozy on cool days. Note the real estate at the right for other equipment.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    All of the accessory switches are in one place and when activated light up.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    This custom-made T-top has forward leaning support pilasters just as one might find on much larger motoryachts. The effect works and the cantilever design takes most of the pressure off the windshield frame forward.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The side passages to the bow measure 19” (48.3 cm) wide on each side. We’d like to see rails on top of the cabin or caprail.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The electrical switch panel in the cockpit also includes the circuit breakers.

    Windward Passage

    We measured the side passageways to the bow at 19” (48.3 cm) wide on each side of the 407 Panacea’s console. A locker in the side of the console houses the 12 V electrical switches for the cockpit. (See above.)

    A Suggestion. We would like to have rails on top of the cabin/console or caprail to provide a little more security for people going forward in a seaway. Such rails on the gunwales would be ugly -- unless they were recessed like the ones in the bow. On the side of the console below the windshield, they would not be so noticeable in powder coated white.

    The Bow

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The horseshoe-shaped bow has full backrests and the hand-hold rail is recessed below deck level in case anyone chooses to fish from up front.

    The lounge seat on the trunk cabin can actually be two seats in one. There’s the standard chaise-style lounger that lets at least two people stretch out in style for sunning, reading, or just enjoying the seascape. And, an optional power backrest in the middle can pop up to create a bench-style seat in the front of the trunk cabin.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The arrow points to the entrance hatch to the accommodations below.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The lounge on the front of the console has side bolsters to help occupants stay in place.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Looking down on the lounger on the top of the trunk cabin we can see the crack that allows the center panel to electrically rise up and form a seat back.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The backrest raises at the push of a button to create a bench seat. Note the footrest. These are the kind of innovations that Intrepid is known for.

    More Storage

    In the shoulders of the boat, just abaft the forward seats are port and starboard lockable storage compartments. Rod racks can be placed in here as well as scuba tanks. Other things that can be placed there are foldable deck chairs and tables, and even sun awnings.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    In the shoulder of the bow, Intrepid has built-in port and starboard storage compartments ideal for holding fishing rods and large enough to hold scuba diving tanks.

    Much of the “day boating” activity on the 407 Panacea will take place in the boat’s bow, which can be enhanced with an optional power table that can be raised part way and filled in with a lounge to create a large sun pad/playpen. It can also be raised fully to create a great spot to enjoy lunch.

    The aft section of the forward seats can be raised at the push of a button to create chaise lounges. The seat bottoms lift up on stainless-steel gas struts to access storage. In this way, the forward seating is ideal for sunning, riding along, and entertaining. With the table down on the deck, the forward area can also be a casting venue.

    The anchor locker in the foredeck can be equipped with an optional windlass.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Here we see the bow table in the fully raised position. This creates a good spot for the kids to have lunch. Note the port backrest has been powered up, but the starboard one is down.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Lower the table all the way and put up the backrests to create dual forward-facing lounges.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    As functional as it is comfortable, the bow has storage under the bottom cushions. They are insulated and self-draining overboard so that they can be used as fishboxes, coolers, or just for general storage.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The optional windlass is below deck level on a platform above the anchor locker. We like the large opening to access the chain that will invariably get tangled after crossing the Gulf Stream.

    Below Decks

C – Mini galley and 6’3” (1.91 m) headroom, cedar-lined hanging locker, and 120 V and 12 V electrical panel. D – Large wet head with toilet, sink, and shower.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Like the companionway hatch on a sailboat, the hatch to the 407 Panacea’s cabin slides aft for easy entry.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Entering the centerline cabin down teak stairs we found the overhead to be 6’3” (1.91 m) in this location which is just in front of the galley (left) and the head (where the cameraman is standing).

    Enter Here. A hatch in the starboard side of the console provides entry to the 407 Panacea’s cabin, which has maximum headroom of 6’3” (1.91 m). Here we found another power adjustable table that can be lowered to create a V-berth for two in the bow.

    We like that Intrepid designed supports for the table when it’s in the lowered position into the base of the U-shaped seating. There’s also additional space forward for sleeping people to extend their legs.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    There is a step down into the Panacea’s parlor. Light from the forward window keeps things bright.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    At the touch of a button the table rises and lowers.

    With the addition of a filler cushion, the dinette turns into a large bed for over-nighting or a nap.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    An electric shade has been thoughtfully placed over the window in the cabin.

    Galley. Aft to port, the cabin galley has a refrigerator and stainless steel sink beneath a removable cover in the solid-surface countertop. There’s storage above and below the counter. Our test boat had a microwave oven and refrigerator.

    The wet head has a toilet and a sink with a pull-out shower wand. Behind a mirrored hatch in the head we found the 407 Panacea’s battery switches. This is an unusual place, and a secure one. Overhead there is a frosted window to keep things bright.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    On the starboard side forward of the head is the 120 V and 12 V electrical panel.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Just below the electrical panel is a cedar-lined hanging locker.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    The faucet in the head pulls up to be used as a shower and the entire compartment is finished in fiberglass for easy cleanup and water integrity. A tinted skylight over the head keeps this bright.
    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Behind the mirror seen above, we found all the battery switches for the boat. Handy for the owner, but hidden to trespassers.

    Behind a gasketed door in the head are shelves for towels.


    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    This drawing shows the stepped hull design that gives the Intrepid 407 Panacea her noteworthy performance.

    Bottom Design. The 407 Panacea rides on a single-step bottom that has a 22-degree deadrise at the transom. Intrepid designs the bottom with a forward panel that is at a steeper longitudinal angle along the keel than the aft panel. The two panels create more lift aft than at the step itself so the boat rides with a slightly bow-up attitude. This should provide a drier ride and for drivers moving from a conventional V-bottom to their first stepped boat, it should be an easier transition.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Here we get a good look at the 407 Panacea’s single-step bottom design.

    Power. Owners can choose engines from Mercury, Yamaha or Seven Marina in twin or triple configurations and the single-step bottom provides a combination of performance, efficiency and rough-water capability. A quad-engine option, that requires transom modification, is also available.

    We tested the 407 Panacea with triple 400-hp Mercury Racing Verado 400R supercharged 4-stroke outboards turning 19” (48.3 cm) pitch four-blade stainless steel propellers. With three people, 186 gallons (704 L) of fuel and test equipment on board, our test boat had an estimated weight of 19,471 lbs. (8,832 kg).

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    1200 horses are really all this boat needs, but quads are available. The supercharged Mercury Racing Verado engines deliver more horsepower in the tropics than naturally aspirated engines.

    WOT. We ran a top speed of 61.5 mph (53.5 knots/99 kph) at 6400 rpm. At that speed she burns 53.5 gph. But when running hull to hull with a buddy, who cares?

    Best cruise came at 3000 rpm where the boat ran 20.4 mph (17.7 knots/32.8 kph) and burned 20.9 gph (79.2 lph) giving her a range of 423 statute miles (680 km) with 10% of the boat’s 483-gallon (1,828 L) fuel capacity in reserve. At this speed, she got 1.0 mpg -- which is impressive considering the triple 400s on the transom.

    Getting Nautical. For those contemplating long hikes, let’s convert those best cruise numbers -- which is her most economical planing speed -- to knots and nautical miles: 17.7 knots for a range of 367 nautical miles.

    At 4500 RPM. Most people we know will want to let the 1200 horses gallop when conditions permit, and at 4500 rpm we recorded a speed of 38.8 mph (33.7 knots), burning 41.1 gph and getting .9 mpg for a range of 407 statutes miles with a 10% fuel reserve.

    In acceleration tests, the 407 Panacea planed in 5.2 seconds and ran to 20 mph in 7.1 seconds and to 30 mph in 11.2 seconds.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    Even in less-than-ideal conditions, the 407 Panacea can make strong headway with 1200-hp doing the pushing.


    In 1’ to 2’ (0.31 m to .61 m) chop, the 407 Panacea sliced cleanly through waves with no pounding. At higher speeds, say around 50 to 60 mph, she flies from one wave top to the next, staying and, thanks to the bottom design, keeping the props in the water.

    Around the docks we were curious to see how the boat would handle without a joystick, but she didn’t need one. She responded well and the optional bow thruster helped us line her up exactly where we wanted. The trick is to go slow. Watch the video.

    Intrepid 407 Panacea
    In turns, the 407 Panacea handled predictably and notice how the bow stays up, just the way it was designed.

    Construction. Intrepid builds the 407 Panacea wood-free with vacuum-bagged PVC foam hulls and knitted uni-and multi-directional laminates. The boat is fully resin-infused, which Intrepid says makes her 20 to 40% lighter and stronger.

    Intrepid boats have always reminded us of an intricate Faberge egg – one with delicate moving parts and insides that dazzle, and show off a master jeweler’s artistic ability, creativity, and craftsmanship.

    The 407 Panacea is just that sort of Intrepid.

    Future owners of the Intrepid 407 Panacea should thank the customer that requested that the test boat be built. She has the cockpit space for a day of fishing, cruising, diving or all three. Thanks to her cabin, if a couple wants to sneak away for a weekend, the boat is up for that, too. With an extensive options list, the boat can be equipped to accommodate a variety of on-water interests and activities.
