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.

The Encore by Nauticraft
The Encore is the perfect boat choice for couples and families. With side by side fully padded recumbent seats and a bench seat in the rear, a group of 4 can take a spin out on the lake with ease. But don’t be fooled by the size, one person alone can navigate it handily through the water, regardless of the propulsion method. A conveniently placed steering handle allows control of the maneuverable double rudder system. There is plenty of storage room on the front shelf and under the rear seat for things such as towels, beverages, cameras and other electronics. The Encore’s hull is self bailing, therefore requiring no bilge pump.
