Nauticraft is the Gold Rush of pedal boats

The best pedal boats I have ever seen or used. There was a short piece written about them in Recumbent News a few years ago as I recall. In any event these are expensive, but really top grade boats. Well designed with unbelievable performance. Several years ago the guy who developed them took one to Newport, RI to the Small Boat Show and challenged all others to a race that was out to a buoy and back. Kayaks, sea skiffs, shells, you name it, all entered the competition. The Nauticraft handily beat the field. Then one of the guys in a shell wanted to try it. He was an Olympian and could not believe this goofy pedal boat with a fat guy in it beat him. He bested his own time over the course by almost 1 full minute on his first attempt.

Pedal Boat - The Encore P

encore Pedal boat

4 person pedal boat with 2 side by side independent drive units!

Relief from trying to keep up with your partner's cadence!   The Encore Pedal boat allows each pedaler to work at their own pace, not by the pace your partner. Both forward and aft storage compartments are fully functional in this pedal only version. In the rear compartment you can find the “clean out hole”, handy in removing weeds from the propellers.
