This 26' Intrepid is the original, the first ever ordered! She has been lovingly maintained by her one and only owner and is in pristine condition. A new in 2009 Yamaha 300hp two-stroke motor has never missed a beat or ever left the owner stranded, along with a new aluminum custom engine bracket, new breaker panel and switches, and new fuel lines (complete fuel system pressure check was also performed). There are only 216 hours on the current motor and approximately 650 hours on the boat. She cruises at 35mph+ and includes a spare prop. Equipment and electronics include 2 batteries with charger, 2 bilge pumps, trim tabs by Bennett, Yamaha hour meter and multi-function gauges, Airmar wind system with Garmin GMI10 display, Garmin 5208 GPS Map, 2 Icom VHF radios, EPIRB, and AM/FM/SAT stereo. Additional features include:
The boat has always been stored dry and/or covered and has never had bottom paint applied; the gel-coat is "like-new" and the teak is beautiful. Includes covers for the console and leaning post as well as a full mooring cover. All safety equipment (braided dock lines, 2 anchors, life vests and fenders) are included and comes on Continental dual-axle trailer. The mechanic who has serviced the Yamaha 300 since new is available to speak with.

The current owner is the original owner of the Checkered Demon. He initially met with the designer of the 26' Intrepid (Jim Wynne) and the owner of Intrepid (John Meshal) in the Spring of 1986 to plan the custom features of the center console Intrepid. The Intrepid was completed in July 1986, although it looks like she is "brand new," including the gelcoat condition.
The Intrepid has always been kept either indoors in a covered dry-storage facility or outside on a dual-axle Continental trailer under a full cover over the boat down to the chine. The sale of the trailer is included with the sale of the subject Intrepid 26.
