This listing is for a Escape Rumba sailboat that is in excellent condition. Boat/sail/mast was stored inside the garage. Trailer is included. Unsure when the sailboat was built so the 2005 entry is a guesstimate. An extra wooden seat, which can be seen in the photo, was added. It can be easily removed.


  • Easily transported on a car top or trailer, the hull is one piece roto-molded polyethylene with no seams to open. This creates a durable, light weight boat that can take the punishment of beach sailing, grounding, or being dragged along the shore. The hull is a distinctive bright safety yellow for easy spotting from shore.
  • The wide body design makes the Rumba extremely stable. The Stableform hull design making it 3X less likely to capsize than a traditional sailboat - you'll spend more time sailing and less time swimming!
  • When the wind picks up, the rounded sides offer a great platform to hike out for ultimate speed and performance. The Rumba is one of the most versatile high performance small sailboats ever designed. It combines race boat performance and the ability to carry the whole family for summer outings.
  • The forward cockpit provides lots of space, and the aft cockpit features sculptured bucket seats with excellent lower back support, so you can sit, and be very comfortable in light breezes. The cockpit is also self-draining, with drink holders and mast step.

    Sail Plan

  • The Rumba features the SmartRig sail plan with roller reefing on the mast, usually found only in much larger boats. When you want to deploy the sail, simply pull the outhaul line and the sail unrolls. To stow the sail, pull on the furling line and the sail easily rolls up on the mast again. This also means the sail is easily adjusted to any size necessary for wind conditions. If it's really blowing, reduce sail area. If the wind is light, pull it out all the way. The sail sleeves over the two piece mast eliminating the need for halyards, and is controlled by a single mainsheet. It's no wonder the Rumba is considered one of roomiest and most user friendly boats in its class.
  • Family groups and larger people will appreciate this boat's performance. Quickly gets up to speed in the lightest of winds yet the powerful sail is easily tamed by the ability to instantly roll away the sail on its SmartRig.
  • The race-inspired sail built for performance and durability is also transparent to allow safe navigation.The two piece mast and boom are easy to store, but securely lock into the boat during use.


  • The Rumba has a swing up centerboard tensioned with a shock cord. If you happen to sail into water too shallow, the shock cord will allow the board will swing up until you float past the obstruction, then you can easily return the board to the down position.
  • The rudder has a spring loaded head which acts the same way. With a board/rudder up draft of less than 3 1/2 inches, there's never a reason to worry about sailing into shallow water.
  • The kick-up center board and rudder let you get on and off the water quickly.
