Have you ever wished you could sit in a boat filled with water while floating on the water? Ordinarily, that might mean you’re sinking if you’re in a regular boat but it could mean you’re living large if you’re in the Hot Tub Boat.
When people have hot tubs, it’s not surprising to see the tubs out by the pool or overlooking a scenic ocean or lake view so it’s obvious that looking at water while sitting in a hot tub is a natural activity, but the scene never changes, no matter how comfortable you are. Having a hot tub in a boat changes that.
Engineered and built in Seattle, Washington, this electric boat features a Vinylester hull topped with a handcrafted, African teak slatted deck and a hot tub that measures 8′ L x 4′ W x 24″ D, positioned over the boat’s center of buoyancy so that stability isn’t affected. The tub holds up to 2100 pounds of water and six adult bathers, with an integrated diesel-powered boiler with an adjustable thermostat keeping everyone nice and toasty with temperatures that can go up to 104 degrees.
While kicking back and unwinding in the warm water, you can enjoy some tunes from your MP3 player through two pop-up, flush-mounted speakers in the deck and sip a nice, cold brew that’s been chilling in one of the four ice chests that are built into the deck, in addition to the additional storage areas that are both fore and aft.
