About Us –  EscBoats

We are located in Grand Rapids, MI and believe in building quality boats for you to enjoy on the water! Over here at EscBoats we enjoy outdoor activities and would live on the water if we could. Our familiarity with the boat comes from the many combined years as former employees of both Leisure Life Ltd.® and Johnson Outdoors Watercraft®. Our boats are custom built to your specifications. We are very proud and excited to be building this boat again and look forward to building one for you.

The EscBoats Esc’KEY was originally launched by Leisure Life Ltd.® as the ElDeBo®, a tiller steered, manually deployed electric motor deck boat. Johnson Outdoors Watercraft® purchase Leisure Life and added the Escape Cruz Electric Deck Boat®, a electronically deployed electric motor and steering wheel. Those models have been enjoyed for many years by thousands of boat owners. EscBoats Esc’ADE’s “un”plug and play nature provides a fun, easy going, low maintenance pleasure craft that enhances your on-the-water enjoyment and adventure. The Esc’KEY also has the”un”plug and play nature in a simple to use tiller steered deck boat.

EscBoats has taken the best design elements from the ElDeBo® and Escape Cruz Electric Deck Boat® and added upgraded materials, components, and assembly techniques. Additionally, the Minn Kota® E-Drive® propulsion system has been upgraded and is now digitally controlled. All things considered we feel that the Esc’KEY and Esc’ADE are the most refined models to date and are easily the best electric deck boats in their class. EscBoats builds new boats and refurbishes used boats, one by one per your specifications. Let us know what options you want and we can add them to make your boat one of kind.
