At this speed I get about 4 mpg.
I had a normal load. My wife and three kids and had about 80 gallons of fuel on board.
@ 4500 my speed goes to around 35mph or 32kts for u nautical guys.
This is the first cat I have owned and love it. The storage is sick and the deck space is awesome.

Before my cat I owned a 23' Bull Dolphin that nearly caused my divorce. I could not get my wife on the mono hull unless it was flat ass calm.
Now she loves goin on the cat.

Once u go Cat, u never go back!

Everyone should burn their monohulls and hunt Reggie Fountain down and tar and feather him!

i spit my coffee out reading this! thanks for the laugh. Intrepid is the international sign for a rich idiot imo. Hands down one of the worst preforming boats I have ever rode on.

Really? Who was driving?


I've owned several cat hulls and now run a 32 intrepid. I've dove off YFs and Regulators and See Vees.


The only ride I've felt better than my Intrepid is the Freeman 33 and a WorldCat 32TE. But I get better fuel economy at all loads and it's much easier to trailer than the 32-3' cat hulls.

No kidding, a crappy driver can make any hull handle like a turd. The worst ride I have ever been on was a run on a 32 TE World Cat. An 18 knot jaunt into a 4 ft quartering felt like it was going to detach my retinas and knock the fillings out of my teeth.

The 32 Intrepid is in my top 5 picks for running the GOM. Anyone who thinks they suck should try putting 16 120 steels and 1000 pounds of ice and fish on their ride and see how well they fair bridging the gap.

33 Freeman blows them ALL out of the water. Loaded, speed and fuel consumption.
That's not hype. Ride on one. You will be convinced.
