The ESCAPADE has all the best features of the deep vee hulls such as soft entry, easy ride, and high speed potential. But unlike some deep vees, the ESCAPADE won't make like a rocking chair when the crew walks from one side of the boat to the other. The reverse curvature at the chine not only makes for a stable fishing platform, but deflects all that spray without the use of power wasting appendages so common in many of today's so-called "modern" boats. You get up on a plane at lower speeds and with less power than most of the extreme vee jobs.

But let's not forget that this boat was designed with the sports fisherman in mind. Take a look at that flying bridge. It's not only spacious, but comfortable too, and with full circle visibility for easy docking and fish finding. Check that cockpit! there's room for a chartered party and all their gear. What's more, it's self-draining and never need be covered, you won't trip over any motor boxes because it's flush. You'll be able to sleep four in full length berths too. The galley is complete with sink, stove, and ice box or refrigerator, plus lots of storage space. The head is completely enclosed and has a roomy hanging locker as well.
