CYCLEBOATS

In 2012, we invented the ultimate social experience: a human powered boat bar that we dubbed a “Cycleboat.”

Leading U.S. Boat Manufacturer

Since inventing the Cycleboat, we have have become one of the leading manufacturers of small passenger vessels in the United States with 75+ Coast Guard inspected boats on the water. Keep your fleet looking consistent with our Cycleboats, Palapa Pontoons and Party Pontoons! 

Custom Cycleboats

Our Cycleboats are available in three model sizes with tons of options. We have an interactive program that allows you to build and price your boat without the back and forth of quoting out your custom Cycleboat. Our Build-Your-Boat system shows the pricing and options for all of our boat models and provides payment schedules and timelines.

CYCLEBOAT 30

Cycleboat 30 is rated for 20 passengers plus 2 crew members and can operate in partially protected waterways. A bathroom is available and a 90HP Suzuki comes standard.

CASCADE CYCLEBOATS

 

Cascade Cycleboats is the division of Sculpin Marine that invented the ultimate social experience: a human powered boat bar they dubbed a “Cycleboat.” Also called party barges, paddle pubs, beer boats and more, the word Cycleboat has become the generic term used by operators and copycat builders for this type of boat. 

We have 45+ successful operators throughout the United States and Virgin Islands. Many of our operators run a combiation of our cycleboats and tiki boats. With our variety of boat styles and sizes, operators are able to continually expand their operations. We do not require a franchise and allow you to operate your business as you see fit without taking any revenue on the backend.

HOW IT STARTED

When the idea to put the land based cycle pubs on the water there was one big issue… how to propel the boat with the pedal action? The initial idea for the paddlewheel was sketched on the daily specials menu at a local brewery in 2012. 

We built a prototype boat and engineered a drive system so that even just one person pedaling can propel the boat. With our efficient proprietary pontoon and steering system, the boats are highly maneuverable at low pedaling speeds.

Designing a human powered boat that complied with the extensive Coast Guard regulations for small passenger vessels was no easy feat. Our first commercial Cycleboat passed all inspections with flying colors and  is still operating successfully in Seattle.

BUILT TO LAST

Just about every part of our boats are built in-house. Our helms, bars, seat boxes etc are all fabricated of aluminum which makes them highly customizable and long lasting. We do not use off the shelf plastic that needs to be replaced on a regular basis.

Our floors are sandblasted tread plate that is non-slip and durable. Our bar-tops are low maintenance powder coated aluminum. The built in coolers have plugs to make for easy draining. You can choose from a vinyl canopy top that easy to roll-up mid-tour or a solid powder coated aluminum top. 

All of our boats come with heavy duty custom boat trailers for ease in taking the boat out of the water for annual maintenance or winter storage.
