The superyacht toy business has lots to offer the toy chest on board with must-have water toys. Take your pick of options to enjoy the water, from spending a lazy afternoon soaking up the sun on the lounging inflatables to getting the heart pumping on a jet board ride above the water to a fast and fun SEABOB cruise under water. Here's our pick of the latest and greatest water toys guaranteed to increase the fun for your guests.
FunAir Shaded Oasis
The Shaded Oasis is a free-floating water retreat with couch seating, a dipping pool, and an ultralight UV shade — an evolution of FunAir’s popular Floating Oasis. Through research and collaboration, the yachting canopy specialist Decktent worked with FunAir’s design and engineering team to bring the premium solution to the superyacht sector. The shade is made from the same ultra-lightweight materials and construction used in kiteboarding sails. Without the hassle of rigid framed shades, the Shaded Oasis comfortably fits eight adults and packs down into a sack, taking up very little storage on board. There’s also a netted splash area in the center for guests to take a dip into the water. And it can be quickly deployed, inflating in 15 minutes or less. This collaboration with Decktent also includes an inflatable shade accessory that can be fitted to the Wave Lounger series.
FunAir Club Chaise and Club Chair
The shape of the FunAir Club Chaise allows for lounging like in a traditional Chaise Lounge but with the space of a daybed, a perfect choice for two adults sunbathing as it also has enough support built in to sit up and enjoy a drink in the sunshine. Its innovative design allows it to float on water after removing the base section, creating a personal island to relax on. The Club Chaise also doesn’t need to be limited to the beach. Because it can be easily inflated, it can help transform deck spaces and provide additional seating on deck during a party or just a movie night on board. For a more formal and luxurious seating area, the Club Chair resembles a traditional two-person sofa or loveseat while maintaining the elements that people love about FunAir beach furniture.
There’s nothing quite like skimming along the water under sail. Now you can do so on a smaller scale with Tiwal’s new 3R, a supercharged inflatable racing dinghy that’s portable in two bags. It’s a fun addition to any yacht’s toy offerings. As a bonus — this new sport dinghy is easy to assemble and disassemble in no more than 25 minutes, due in part to a light and easy-to-handle hull.
The Tiwal 3R’s performance is similar to that of rigid-hulled sailing dinghies but is easier to access. It planes quickly and its power allows it to play with the water, ride the waves, and make long runs with fast, consistent speed, according to Bertrand. The 10-foot, 6-inch Tiwal 3R weighs 121 pounds with a max load of 440 pounds. Prices start at $8,800.
AquaBanas Social Bana Deck, Jumbo Lounger, and Bana Tent
In June, AquaBanas launched their Recreational Line to enhance your summer experience. Made up of six items at launch, including their deck, tent, and lounger, all of these are modular and can connect to each other to create a wide variety of configurations. It holds six to eight people; the lounger adds an additional capacity for four.
The Social Bana Deck, Jumbo Lounger, and Bana Tent all connect to make for an amazing experience for charter guests (or crew who manage to sneak time off the yacht when no one else is around).
The modular pieces are designed for boats and tenders under 80 feet. It takes just 15 to 20 minutes to inflate and deflate and can be easily managed with a crew of two.
Aqua Race Kart
What’s better than riding a GoKart at an amusement park? Riding a GoKart on the water! Aqua Race Kart, a GoKart-inspired watercraft company, released their new product in February at the Miami boat show through Nautical Ventures, their exclusive Florida dealer in this new partnership.
It has a Rotax 900 ACE jet propulsion system and features a foot-operated throttle, digital gauge cluster, adjustable steering and seating, and onboard dry storage. It also has shifting for neutral, forward, and reverse drive. You have options for custom graphics, various seat sizes, and Rotax 900 ACE Engine (60 or 90). Designed to have a uniquely lower center of gravity for unmatched stability and performance, the Aqua Kart hull operates in calm water — it’s not intended for use in choppy or rough water conditions. $22,000, plus $1,000 shipping.
F-One Rocket Air 2021
Add a foiling board to the toy box that is versatile to accommodate different sports and all types of guests and riders with F-One’s Rocket Air range. Starting at 4’10” to 7’11”, their boards can be used for whatever sport suits the mood best, including surf-foiling, SUP-foiling, wing-foiling, wind-foiling, or kite-foiling. Nearly indestructible and made with some extra padding if you fall, Rocket Air boards are made using high-grade dropstitch, adding stiffness to control the board properly and lightweight to make it fun and easy to handle. €659.
FunAir Modular Beach Club Sea Pool with Jet Ski Dock
The limit of activities that can be enjoyed on the water doesn’t exist with the FunAir Modular Beach Club Sea Pool. Pictured is the custom-built version and a Jet Ski dock for M/Y Nomad with a nonslip, teak-look finish. Numerous set ups can be deployed quickly and easily with this pool configuration, so the watersports and activities planned can begin even sooner. Built in four separate sections, it’s easy to clean and pack away, even with minimal crew.
Onean Carver X
Looking for a little more oomph on the water? The new Onean Carver X offers double the power — 10kW — of its predecessor, the Carver Twin model. This is an added benefit to allow riders weighing more than 90 kilograms to quickly and easily reach the plane. The dual jet propulsion system comes with two batteries, with a ride time of approximately 40 minutes of mixed speed use and a top speed of around 45 kilometers per hour. As with all of Onean’s products, the batteries and remote control are the same for each model, so they can be easily interchanged. You can select between five power levels and control your pressure settings to create the perfect ride. €10,990.
SEABOB F5 SR
Soar across the water at a force of 745 newtons on the new SEABOB F5 SR — that’s 265 more than the F5 model. The eco-friendly toy has an emission-free E-Jet Power System and the F5 SR’s HD camera in the nose lets you record amazing video footage while sailing underwater through your stunning surroundings. This new model offers more driving stability with its two rear fins, which also improve its maneuverability during any dive. €14,935.
