    Captain's Report

    Sea Hunt Escape 211 LE
    The Sea Hunter Escape 211 LE has an LOA of 21’1” (6.3 m) with an 8’2” (2.59 m) beam and she weighs in at 2,350 pounds (1,066 kg) dry.

    Mission Statement

    The Sea Hunt Escape 211 LE is designed to be an all-around dual console with a saltier feel than a typical bowrider. As we’ve seen with other Sea Hunt models, she has a comprehensive standard-equipment list that can simplify the buying process for owners.

    Outboard power provides the punch for towing watersports and can still troll for fish, and it opens up the cockpit for maximum usable space. Her semi-V bottom has 16 degrees of transom deadrise, and a 60-degree entry in her Carolina-flared bow helps deflect waves.

    Notice how much more space is available in the 211 Escape LE’s stern because the boat has outboard power instead of a stern drive or inboard.

    Features Inspection

    Standard Equipment. On just about every other dual-console boat we’ve seen, bow cushions that cover the casting deck are an available option that we would bet almost every owner purchases. The same goes for the stereo. The Escape 211 LE comes standard with bow cushions, a rear bench seat, a 15-gallon (56-liter) livewell, an Infinity Bluetooth waterproof stereo with four speakers, and a USB/MP3 connection and a freshwater washdown.

    Whether it’s the family cleaning up from a day on the beach or dad rinsing down the cockpit after fishing, the pressure freshwater system will come in handy.

    The Bow. With the cushions out of the way, the walking area in the 211 Escape LE’s bow is covered in nonskid, so it could still be a good fishing area. The gunwales have padded bolsters to lean against, and there is storage beneath two hatches that secure in place with rubber latches. In the forepeak, there’s an anchor locker, and the deck is notched for the rode, so the hatch can be closed while the anchor is deployed. Owners who want to outfit the boat for inshore fishing can order the 211 Escape LE with a wiring harness for a trolling motor.

    The Consoles. To separate the bow from the cockpit, Sea Hunt equips the Escape 211 LE with a door to close off the passageway. Working our way aft from the bow, to port, the console has a hatch that opens up a large storage area that can be equipped with a portable head. A smaller hatch in the starboard console provides access to the helm rigging and to additional storage space.

    The Helm. To starboard, the Escape 211 LE’s helm has Yamaha’s digital Command Link gauges in a raised dash that’s finished in a dark color to help reduce glare. The boat comes standard with a stainless steel steering wheel with a spinner knob and hydraulic steering. A tilt hydraulic helm and trim tabs with LED indicators are available options.

    The Escape 211 LE’s dual-console layout has a large storage compartment to port and the helm to starboard. The Bimini top shown in this photo is an option.

    The Cockpit. The Escape 211 LE’s standard seating configuration is two captain’s chairs abaft the consoles with a bench seat across the stern. Behind the captain’s seat is 48-quart (45-liter) cooler. Beneath the cushions in the stern is storage for a cast net and a bait bucket to port, the 15-gallon (56-liter) livewell in the middle and the battery to starboard.

    An optional back-to-back fold-out style seat can replace the port captain’s chair. For storage, there’s a large in-sole locker between the front seats and rod racks with bungee-style retainers in the port gunwale. For trolling, there are rod holders in the side decks and in the stern.

    Power and Performance. Sea Hunt partners with Yamaha for power on its boats and maximum power is a 200-hp four-stroke outboard.

    Observations

    The Escape 211 SE is a saltier-looking all-around family boat than a conventional sportboat bowrider. As previously mentioned, the choice of outboard power provides more space because the engine box is eliminated in the cockpit for people and gear. However, since she has a beam of 8’2” compared to most runabouts that are 8’6” wide, it could be a moot issue. The narrow makes her easier to store.

    Using an outboard also makes the boat pretty light at 2,350 lbs., so she can be towed by a variety of SUVs and pickups.

    Owners who plan to use the Escaped 211 SE extensively for watersports, towing duty will want to go with the biggest available motor while those who lean more towards fishing and cruising can go with tamer power.

    Because she has no cockpit carpet, the boat will be easier to clean up after a day of mixed activities, such as playing on a beach or fishing. A quick blast with the hose and a wipe down will keep the Escape 211 SE looking good. Certainly, low maintenance and few things to go wrong are among her benefits.
