Private or commercial yacht, the majority of the fun on board arguably comes in the shape of the innovative toys and inflatables available to make life on the water even more exciting. 

From motorised watercraft and turbo-charged jetboards to bicycles with an aquatic twist, we look at the top toys and inflatables for yachts stocking up for the season, with some being adaptable enough to support yachting operations as well as ultimate guest fun.

SEABOB F5SR with Performance Raise

For those who prefer to spend time in the water, rather than on it, is the SEABOB. Branded as the world’s fastest water sled, the F5SR is fast yet electronically powered, giving emission-free fun without impact on the environment.

Riders don’t require a driving license to enjoy seven gears, six horsepower and 745N of thrust. That equates to top speeds of 22km/h on the water and 20km/h under it. Small enough for storing on board, the F5SR offers 70 minutes of battery power, Wi-Fi connectivity and personalised paint jobs allowing it to be aligned with the yacht’s branding or owner’s personal tastes. Furthermore, there's option to integrate two HD cameras to capture all the sights and selfies!

The Big Air has stabilising outriggers that stop it turning into the ocean, and a fitted cradle that keeps it in place, away from the yacht. Guests jump straight from the deck onto the Blob, launching their partners into the air. There’s no possibility of rolling back into the yacht’s hull, thanks to an inflatable stand.
