That’s the Intrinsic 360° Advantage.


Buying a boat as a first-time boat owner or a seasoned mariner can be saddled with nuance. Allow our dedicated sales specialists to orchestrate every element of boat purchasing – from locating the perfect vessel best serving your lifestyle, to overseeing such aspects as price negotiation, contingencies, hauling, registration, sales tax, insurance and more. Through sea trials and surveys, Intrinsic will enable you to focus on what boat ownership should be all about: your joy on the water.


At Intrinsic, our certified service department comprises a team of proud individuals who maintain ongoing education to ensure up-to-date expertise on technology, trends and services. We offer proficiency in such areas as engine repair and repower, fiberglass and gelcoat restoration, electronics installation, lighting systems, detailing, storage solutions and so much more. Experience peace of mind knowing the specialists at Intrinsic are taking care of your boat as one of our own.


You didn’t buy a boat to maintain it, so let us do the hard work for you! If you’re located in the mid-Atlantic, chances are you’re at the mercy of seasonal changes, and therefore so is your boat. Intrinsic offers year-long maintenance for your vessel, regardless of size or complexity of challenge. Whether your needs require engine tuning, paint and gelcoat repair, spring commissioning or winterization, the specialists at Intrinsic have you covered – winter, spring, summer and fall.


At some point, you may decide that it is time to part with your boat. Whether you are looking to upgrade in size, downgrade in size, or take a small break from boating altogether, this is the perfect time to call Intrinsic to facilitate the sale of your boat. We dedicate a team of seasoned sales and marketing representatives, our business & closing office and a certified service team to ensure we’ve identified any issues before survey. Internet, social media and email marketing are among the many activities we create to market your boat. Weekly reports on listing activity, leads, showings and recommendations are provided. Leave the comps, negotiation, closing paperwork and more to our team at Intrinsic, and together let’s garner the best price for your boat!
