Let me give you the inside scoop on one of the new models that we are working on that we will be taking preorders for starting at the Drive for Perfection Event and carrying on into the Miami International Boat Show. It is the new 438 Evolution.

The new 438 Evolution will have many of the new significant upgrades that we introduced on the new 477 Evolution which has been a huge hit. Starting with the new Evolution hull side window design with the inset style line. Between this, the newly redesigned fiberglass arch, and windshield, it has an amazing profile that lets everyone know you're in a new Evolution Series Intrepid.

In the aft cockpit, we have added the corner above deck transom wells which can be used for storage or rigged as bait wells with flush forward-facing windows. The console is all-new with more space for larger electronics packages than ever before. In the cabin, you will see the largest changes starting with the complete redesign of the bow section.

Originally, the 430 had a berth only in the bow of the cabin. This is now a giant wrap around settee area with a high low table that can lower down to create a second berth forward with the filler cushions having a home behind a hidden access panel at the rope locker bulkhead. This makes this entire bow section very user-friendly without having to give up that second berth because remember... there is a private stateroom as well. It also has a 43" smart television up there so you don't have to miss a minute of the game while you are sitting down to eat!

We have also designed all new cabinetry to align it with the Evolution Series of boats which is very modern. These are only a few of the changes in the new 438 Evolution. We look forward to discussing this new model with you more at the Drive for Perfection Event and at the Miami International Boat Show in the next few weeks. We are also working on another prototype as well, but we are going to hold on to that info for those who attend the two events. I hope to be able to see you all there and answer all of your questions about these new releases and, don't forget the fact that we have also released (9) other new models in the past year for you to see.

I'm looking forward to hanging out with all of you over the next few weeks, so I hope you can make it! We're excited and ready to go!
