Intrepid Powerboats President Ken Clinton is not only the president of a successful company that makes drop-dead gorgeous boats. He also gets to use his extensive experience to innovate and always push the envelope of what’s possible.

The results speak for themselves. Intrepid was one of the first companies to build large center console models (like the 47-foot-long Intrepid 470 Panacea pictured here).

And if imitation is the greatest form of flattery, Clinton should be quite flattered by the proliferation of large center console models on the market.

“What I love about being a semi-custom builder is we’re free to build exactly what our owners want,” he says.

And for many ocean homeowners, an Intrepid is exactly what they want.
