Sail-World.com : Dream Boats for 2013
Dream Boats for 2013

'Regina from Skyfall for sale'    . ©

Make 2013 the year you fulfill your bucket list and lash out on your fantasy boat, whatever form that takes. Here's some inspiration!

Just the thing to see in the New Year, or any time of year, this tiny seaworthy hot tub, known cheekily as the HotTug, was created by clever Dutch designers for the most stylish way to get around the waterways. It’s warmed with a simple wood burning stove and propelled with a quiet electric motor.

The HotTug will easily ferry six to eight passengers whether or not the fibreglass-reinforced polyester hull is filled with water. It works as both a floating hot tub or a regular boat, but presumably gets far better mileage when drained.

A wood stove safely heats the water to whatever temperature you desire, and you can add a gas outboard motor if the built-in electric option doesn't have enough range or speed for your liking.

The boat itself, stripped of motors and the stove, will set you back around US$11,600. But fully equipped you're looking at spending upwards of US$21,300 for what has to be the most relaxing way to enjoy the water.

Or there’s the folding boat devised by two art students in London. Max Frommeld and Arno Mathies,

Masters students of production design at London’s Royal College of Art have created the Foldboat, a one-person rowboat that folds out from a single piece of plastic.

According to its creators, Foldboat was developed after a paper-folding workshop in which systems of creating various forms out of a single piece of material were introduced.

The main advantages of the product are transportation, storage and assembly. Ideal for one or two people, Foldboat can be used in the urban environment (canals, ponds and lakes).

Suitable for fisherman and campers; it also has the potential to be dispatched during disaster relief scenarios such as floods.

The boat costs £800, and its life expectancy is estimated at about 6,000 folds. It goes from plastic sheet to rowboat in a couple of minutes. It also comes with two oars and inflatable pillows to cushion your bum against the hard plastic.

The creative duo believes the Foldboat will find a market with people who want to rent them out or keep them stacked flat while they’re not being used.

And finally, if you fell for the yacht in the latest Bond film, 'Skyfall', you’ll be thrilled to hear the only toy to really feature in the film, Regina, is now for sale.

For just €11 million through Fraser Yachts, it’s a steal.

Or if you baulk at the commitment, it’s also available for charter by Pruva Yachts, in Turkey: One week will set you back a mere €50,000.
