Ultimate stability built into the pedal boat design

 Escapade Pedal Boat Printable Brochure

This pedal powered vessel, with its sleek design, is suitable for use in harbors, bays, ocean inlets and lakes.  It is also used for transportation to an offshore yacht or island home.  The boat's efficient Nauticraft designed single pedal drive system turns a 15" propeller, making movement through water feel effortless, reaching speeds up to 5 mph.  A spade type rudder provides easy and effective turning capability, controlled by a side mounted steering handle.  The sailboat type hull positions the operator down inside the cockpit.  Features a dry shelf up front for items you don't want to get wet and stretch cord retaining system around the front perimeter of the cockpit keeps life jackets, towels and even a beverage safely tucked away.   A rear bench seat fits 1 to 2 people with a molded in storage compartment beneath the seat cushion.  Guinness World Record holder for the English channel crossing in May of 2002.
