These boats have been through the rigorous United States Coast Guard small boat tests. Polyethylene, the material used in the rotational molding process, has a natural buoyency. This, along with cast-in floatational foam gives Nauticraft boats additional contingency floatation.
The Escapade's deep keel gives protection for the propeller and rudder. The ballast filled keel gives ultimate stability making it exceptionally seaworthy. The sailboat-type hull positions the operator down inside the cockpit, providing a comforting feeling of safety, security, and privacy. The Encore has twin keels that protect both propellers. It's massive size in length and beam gives it both stability and safety.
Lastly, all Nauticraft boats are safe for the environment. The manufacturing process utilizes clean technology -- no hazardous pollutants are released into the atmosphere during or after the manufacturing process. And, of course, there is minimal effect on the environment while using these boats. Also, when the useful life of the boat is over, the polyethylene plastic has the potential to be recycled.
