RAND Escape 30 is the perfect new day yacht with all necessary amenities compiled in just 30ft. The clever deck layout and pioneering solutions provide the functionality of a 40 ft experience in a compact power cruiser with cabin and toilet with full standing height, tanning space and hard-top protected kitchen and dining areas.
At this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival, Motor Boat & Yachting editor Hugo Andreae took the chance to look inside the Rand Escape 30, which is the Danish yard’s largest electric boat to date.
We’re big admirers of Rand’s sustainable approach to boating. It offers all its craft with the option of electric motors and uses recycled plastic bottles as the foam core in its sandwich construction hulls.
The new Rand Escape 30 is its largest boat yet and true to form offers a vast array of power options from a single 350hp petrol inboard or outboard up to twin 370hp diesels and three different electric options from a modest 105kW and 47kWh battery up to a propeller-bending 460kW (616hp) and 234kWh.
Despite a potential top speed of 55 knots, its true focus is as a relaxed dayboat with a tall freeboard and walkaround decks making it very safe and easy to move around.
