FunAir Connects with Crew at FLIBS

Leading yacht inflatables company FunAir will be connecting with crew at FLIBS this year by offering up a GoPro Hero 4 as a way to say, “thank you.”

Members of the FunAir team will survey captains and crew on board every megayacht at the show to find out what crews really think about inflatables.

Crews will be asked what they like, what challenges they face, and are how FunAir can continue to improve the crew experience. Each survey will be entered into a prize drawing, and on the last day of the show, the winner will receive a GoPro delivered directly to their yacht.

Innovation is a top priority for FunAir, and the team is constantly finding new ways to improve their designs—be that yacht slides, climbing walls or a myriad of other inflatable yacht products—to make the experience even more user friendly.


FunAir collaborates with a number of high profile ship builders such as Feadship, Lurssen, Oceanco and Princess Yachts by meeting with owner representatives during the planning and new build process. This enables suitable storage facilities and safe access to be built into the design of every yacht. This in turn gives the crew a far greater experience when deploying and stowing away inflatables.

Not all crew have this luxury, however, and FunAir is keen to find out how they can help busy crew with limited storage or poor access. FunAir is currently working on a number of projects, including improved protective coatings that reduce the risk of mildew as well as strategic seam placement on products so that each item folds away quickly and into a smaller space.


John Courtney, Yacht Specialist at FunAir stated, “Connecting with crew is so important for us at FunAir. Feedback from the people who use our products day in and day out is priceless and we look forward to hearing everyone’s comments. We were lucky to spend lots of time with captains and crew during Cannes and Monaco and decided to build on that success with a crew survey at FLIBS. We will have some smaller prizes to give out as crew take the survey, and of course, the GoPro to giveaway on the last day.”
