Escapade Pedal Boat in the Seventy48 Race

Nauticraft is looking forward to hearing how well our Escapade Pedal boat and its owner perform at the upcoming Seventy48 race.  Yep – a 70 mile race with a time frame of 48 hours.  Did we mention that it is a race of Human Power Only – i.e. pedal, paddle, row?! It is taking place starting June 11, 2018 and starts in Tacoma, Washington and ends up in Port Townsend, Washington. Check out the below video and see “The AquaVan” in action!!  (Note that Nauticraft does not condone the use of our boats in rough waterways or extreme conditions.  It is solely the boat owner’s choice as to how/when they use our boats.)

Original Mallard & Waterbug Pedal Boats for Sale

Thank you, Nancy, for the pictures you sent of your most recent 8-mile excursion on the Mallard Pedal boat in St Petersburg, FL. The Mallard was the predecessor to our Escapade Pedal boat. What a great job she has done in keeping the Mallard looking so good!

          

 

Nauticraft has for sale an original Mallard – as well as some original WaterBugs – both designed by Garry Hoyt (renowned yacht designer from Newport, Rhode Island) and built by the Harken Brothers (makers of yacht hardware). (Please reference our blog posting of March 10 which gives a further description of these boats & their history.)

        

 

We also have two fiberglass Mallard boats available for sale which were built by Nauticraft in the early years.

                

 

The Mallards are all in good operating condition.  The Waterbugs will need some refurbishing and are being sold in “as is” condition.  Call or E-mail us if you are interested!  231-798-8440 or inquiry@nauticraft.com.
