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.

Nauticraft Pedal Boat, Electric Boat and Sailboat 

Nauticraft Corporation is a company dedicated to the love of boats and boating, coupled with a desire to develop and manufacture products which allow peaceful use of waterways while minimizing personal carbon footprints.  The Escapade and Encore series of pedal and electric boats were introduced at a time when there were only murmurs of global warming, fuel prices were still at a manageable level, and exercise was something you did at the gym.

Environmentally Friendly Boats

In today's world, things have changed.  Gas prices are out of sight, while more and more lakes and rivers are being declared gas motor/octane free.  Although human powered boats have been around for many years,  casual design and inefficient propulsion systems have relegated them to the status of toys rather than true boats.  So now true boaters are searching for alternative means of enjoying water sports.

What Nauticraft offers is the best of both design and efficiency in the pedal boat arena, true boats in every sense of the word with  sleek lines and styling.  With the added electric motor option on the Encore, there is now a more environmentally positive alternative to gas powered motors. 

The Tribute, a traditional style sloop sailboat, is designed and built to advanced standards, bringing wind powered propulsion to the list.
