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.

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.

Drop in Drive Unit

Pedal Propulsion
Its "all in one" drive system is unlike other drive systems in the Nauticraft line. No drive shaft needed, the propeller is attached to the drive unit itself for ease in removal and use. The rubber belt is easy to replace and more cost conscious than other designs.
