The Intrepid 430 Sport Yacht was penned to serve as both a stand-alone cruising craft and, with an added towing eye, as a superyacht tender. It also filled the builder’s series gap between the 390 and 475.

The 430 has a stepped hull form, adding lift and reducing drag.

Belowdecks, the 430 we got aboard had cherry joinery. There’s an owner’s berth aft and a platform berth forward. The vessel’s single head has a separate shower stall.

At press time, there were five Intrepid 430 Sport Yachts on the market, ranging from $379,000 to $639,000.

From the Archive

“The 430 offers many of the design features that Intrepid has pioneered, as well as a few new tricks. The slick drop-down panel at the helm, the fuel-fill tap hidden discreetly beneath a door in the coaming, and the hullside water-access door were expected. The air-induction system that feeds the breeze to the helm area was something new, as was the electrically actuated seat/sun pad.”
