Pedal Boat

his is the water craft that set a Guinness World Record for the fastest pedal-powered crossing of the English Channel. Possessing superior nautical qualities that enabled navigation through the Channel’s notoriously inhospitable waters, its ballasted keel provides superior stability in windy conditions for up to three passengers (for a total of 525 lbs.). Its self-righting, durable rotomolded polyethylene hull cuts through chop for a smooth ride.

Drawing 1′ 8″ of water, allowing paddling into shallows, it is suitable as a tender for transportation to an offshore boat, or as a way to explore a calm bay or lake. The boat has a quiet, smooth pedal crank that drives a 16″ two-bladed propeller, providing a hull speed of 5 1/4 mph. Stopping and reverse are accomplished by pedaling backward. The rudder is controlled by a hand lever located on the right side of the cockpit, providing easy and effective turning.
