This finely designed and constructed 60-foot catamaran-style yacht was custom-built for our resort and christened in 1995. Powered by twin 180 horsepower Mercury diesel engines, the Escapade is the largest and finest entertainment vessel on Green Lake. It has a 14 1/2' beam and can travel at speeds over 26 miles per hour.
The Escapade provides a fun and relaxing way to take in the beautiful scenery and historic buildings along the shores of Green Lake. Our captains are very knowledgeable and provide an interesting historical narrative about the lake and surrounding properties.
Our captains will take you back in time for a brief but rich history of our beautiful Green Lake, the deepest inland lake in Wisconsin during your sightseeing tour aboard the Escapade. Learn how Green Lake became what it is, hear stories of area landmarks and take in the interesting history of local families. Feel the fresh lake breeze on your face and soak in the panoramic beauty. By the time you reach shore, you’ll be laughing and chatting with everyone aboard - a great way to kick off your morning or evening.
The tour can be enjoyed from the open, top deck or from our enclosed salon that is heated or air-conditioned for your pleasure. Rain or shine, you'll cruise aboard the Escapade in comfort.
