The new Larson Escape 25 TTT Dual Console with Tapered Tube Technology features three 27-inch-wide tubes with reverse chines for greater lift and outside hull chamfer to enhance cornering. Combined with a center tube that sits 4 inches deeper than the outer two, the design lends itself to a V-hull-like performance.
The tubes are also welded to create a unified hull. Adding structural integrity is a stringer system inside each tube, with six internal bulkheads per tube.
The dual-console layout features a wraparound tinted windshield that spans the Escape 25’s 8-foot-6-inch beam, with a walk-through panel between the molded fiberglass consoles. A door pulls out from a special compartment in the starboard console to block the wind from the lower portion of the walk-through on chilly days.
You’ll find plush, swiveling high-back captain’s chairs with articulating armrests and soft-touch upholstery.
Twin forward-facing loungers in the bow feature angled backs, headrests and articulating armrests. A classy, round, teak-top pedestal snack table for the bow area with fold-down sides is also available. A stainless-steel boarding gate separates the loungers in the bow.
A pop-up changing station with a canvas enclosure is built into the back of a port lounger. Latching aluminum boarding gates offer guests the convenience of boarding the Escape 25 TTT from either port or starboard.
Behind the captain’s chairs, two aft-facing lounges let you watch the action as you’re pulling tubers with the anodized-aluminum ski pylon. A stainless-steel boarding gate astern leads to the aft swim platform and four stainless-steel, fold-up boarding steps on the starboard side.
The boat blends aluminum sides with contoured fiberglass corner pieces. Each bow corner piece incorporates standard LED docking lights. With the Escape 25 TTT Dual Console, Larson has taken the evolution of the pontoon boat to the next level.
