The Med season is just around the corner and, if you're busy reviewing your inventory of water toys, here are some hints from Josh Richardson at Superyacht Tenders and Toys on some of the hot favourites for this summer.
FLYWHALE – An Ultralight Amphibian Adventure
A beautiful composite amphibious plane, this light weight aircraft can take off and land on either land or water reaching speeds up to 200 km/h. Weighing just 372kg, the two seater Flywhale is smooth, powerful and extremely good fun.
FFF JETSKI – Worlds First Electric Jet ski
This is a new eco-friendly, all-electric stand-up personal watercraft. With no emissions, no engine noise and no fuel, the FFF Jetski allows you to explore more waterways than ever before. When fully charged, the new Gratis X1 gives you 45 minutes of drive time with the option of a battery pack for longer trips out on the water. No other PWC offers you the freedom to choose when and where you want to ride and without disrupting the environment. Pre-orders are now being taken - so get in early!
INFINITY AIRWAVE - The World’s First Ocean Based Stationary Wave
The Air-WAVE XR1 was designed primarily for the superyacht industry. Using state-of-the-art waterjet technology, all mechanical components are permanently installed and hidden within the engine room. With inflatable technology allowing for fast setup and tear-down, it inflates and installs in minutes. This is an elegant design that can be incorporated on board the majority of yacts with minimal storage space required.
The Air-WAVE XR1 is a fun, safe option for first-time users and a competitive and challenging ride for advanced surfers.
FREESTYLE FLEX – An Adjustable Yacht Slide
FreeStyle Slides has dominated the yachting industry’s inflatable toy market since it created the world’s first sealed-air inflatable waterslide in 2009. Since then, FreeStyle has
custom fitted nearly 1,000 yachts, and the new Freestyle Flex Slide is the latest addition to their portfolio. Available off the shelf in flag blue and white, this is an adjustable yacht slide with a height range of 4-9m. It can be inflated from the water and has been designed to fit most yachts.
