The 2023 Intrepid 427 Nomad SE is described by Intrepid Powerboats as a center console that invites you to dream big.

With high safety standards and supreme performance, you are going to love this boat. We invite you to read our blog below as it will take a deeper dive into the 2023 Intrepid 427 Nomad SE to give you a better idea of what it has to offer.

Interior and Accessories

At the transom, you will find dual dive platforms each equipped with their own boarding ladder. This feature meets the recommendation set forth by the American Boat and Yacht Council for solo reboarding. The dual boarding ladders allow for solo entry into the water and onto the boat making it safer for everyone.

Moving forward from the engines and swim platforms, you will find a large service platform area. This platform was designed with ease in mind and makes it simple for you to check on and maintain your engines.

Above the deck storage is available at the aft port side area and aft starboard area. These spacious storage areas can be used to keep your gear or equipment tucked away nicely or you can choose optional baitwells. If you do choose to use these areas for storage, there is the option to add refrigeration to them. If choosing the baitwells each includes a window and is rigged for convenience. If you plan to use the boat for fishing, the baitwells are placed in a convenient location and make fishing from the aft of the boat simple.

In between the storage areas is the option to add an integrated rear folding seat. This seat serves as additional seating for your passengers and can be flipped up when it is not in use. If you plan to primarily fish on your boat, the addition of this seat is a great choice, as it gives you somewhere to sit as you fight to bring your catch on board.

Entry onto the boat is easy with the hull side dive door that offers a lift up and a rotate design to maximize space. No longer will you need to worry about giving up precious cockpit space while the dive door is open. Passengers will feel safe boarding through this door. Should you want to use the dive door for entry into the water, you can. Included and stored under the cabin sole is a pull-out boarding ladder. Passengers can deploy the ladder and then use it to enter and exit the water.

There is a hull side platform that folds out to extend seating on the water. You can fold down the platform and lay on it, use it to enter the water, or even tie up your jet ski to it. The platform does include a ladder.

A small kitchenette can be found prior to reaching the cockpit area. The kitchenette includes a sink, a pull-out cooler, a grill, a refrigerator, and an ice maker. The top of the kitchenette does fold down to close it off when it is not in use forming additional counter space.

An aft cockpit baitwell and fish box are present and can be used for additional storage space if you choose. On both outside skirts of the cockpit are below the deck storage bins. If you choose to outfit the boat with the optional baitwells in the rear, these below the deck storage areas make the perfect place to store your gear and equipment.

The cockpit is home to the captain and is protected from rain and wind thanks to the full-size windshield. The windshield does not take away from the view around you either. The cockpit area has two rows of seating for a total of six seats. The seats are large and plush to provide you with ultimate comfort. Overhead is a T-top that provides shade for all cockpit seating.

The helm itself is expansive and set up just the way you would expect it to be. There is plenty of room for electronics and additional accessories to be installed. The console dashboard does feature large dual screens. The cockpit features a high and low deck that you can raise up or down with the single click of a button. The addition of this feature allows you to adjust your visibility.

Moving away from the cockpit is a side entry door. Here, you will find an ample amount of storage including a closet-like space with drawer units and a dry locker. To the left of the storage area is a separate head with a shower included. The head features a door for privacy.

Heading to the stern of the boat is a tilt-out trash can and dock line storage, one on each side of the boat for convenience. A large rod locker is provided to ensure you can keep your fishing rods safe when not in use. The rod locker also substitutes for another large storage compartment.

The front of the boat is set up for your passengers to enjoy time out on the water. An oversized sun pad is located here that allows your passengers to catch the sun’s rays. The sun pad can be lifted up to reveal a storage area. The sun pad does feature adjustable armrests and cup holders. Additionally, the backrests to the sun pad are electrically actuated allowing you to adjust them for further comfort.

Wraparound forward-facing seating surrounds the bow of the boat. Centered in the middle of the wraparound seating is a high-low table. If you want additional seating and lounging, a filler cushion can be used to transform the table into a sun pad. When not in use, the sun pad goes down into the floor to stay tucked out of the way. Storage space is present underneath the wraparound seating and can be accessed easily by simply lifting the seat up. The backrests to the seats do fold down to reveal rod racks.
