From jet boat to submarine in seconds. Fun starts a few seconds in… wait for it. ...

The Tarzan Boat is built exclusively for fun. Not speed, not luxury, not cruising. If you happen to be on Lake Havasu during the madness I think you would do better rolling up in this then in a speedboat or yacht.   You can pick from three sizes and have options like water slides, trampolines, high dives, and swing outs. Sure you could just get a normal party barge but this one takes it to the next level. Heck, even Mitt Romney has one. Video of the Tarzan Boat in action after...

This is the first I have heard of these Thundercat racing boats. Apparently it has been going on for quite some time though. If only I knew when I was younger I would have been racing these things. Still might. These Thundercat racing boats, not to be confused with the Thundercats cartoon, are a class of inflatable boats strapped with a 40-60 HP motor. These boats are lightweight and have an amazing power to weight ratio. The Thundercat races have plenty of airborne boats and crashes. Simply amazing, videos after the break. ...

The Boat-A-Home is a trailerable houseboat, making it a dual purpose RV. While the Boat-A-Home is on the trailer it is just like any other RV trailer. Take it to the lake and now you have an amazing houseboat with all of your goodies inside already ready to go. More info after the break. ...

This cursor shaped boat, the Tinnie 10, was designed by Joey Ruiter. The Tinnie 10 is tiny, just 10-feet long with a weight of 173-lbs and a 15-inch transom. This triangle shaped is made of powder coated aluminum and can fit two passengers sitting side-by-side on a Xorel-upholstered seat. The floor is made of white oak planks. Engine options include a 6hp gasoline motor or an all-electric version. ...

Surfing on waves is tough. Kite surfing is an entirely different type of “tough”. Kite surfers have to be able to manage the board and the kite at the same time. Tricky stuff. Leave it to gadgetry to solve this problem by having a powerful remote controlled octocopter as the engine. This 8-blade RC copter is pulling a board surfer along at some pretty impressive speeds. The copter they are using in this video is a Freefly System Alta 8 ($18,000). Ouch. The Alta 8 is typically used for flying around professional video equipment. Video...

OK. Wow. So this is what happens when you Go Foil, Naish, and Kai Lenny get together. The created and tested a stand up paddle board (SUP) with a hydro foil. What ensues is a  pretty good time. ...

Hobie Mirage Eclipse Stand Up

If you prefer to cruise across the water in the stand-up position but don’t have a strong back or good core strength check this Hobie board out. The Hobie Mirage Eclipse Stand Up Pedal Board has a bicycle style handlebar system with rudder based steering. It also has pedal power. You simply pump your legs like you are riding a bike and the MirageDrive propulsion system does the rest. The MirageDrive system uses a pair of flippers beneath the board to propel the watercraft forward.

Hobie Mirage Eclipse Pedal Board

“We adapted our time tested MirageDrive to work with our industry leading stand up paddleboards,” explains Hobie’s Director of Engineering, Jim Czarnowski. “We designed the Eclipse so anyone from a beginner to a more athletic expert user can all have a great experience.”

Expect to see the Hobie Mirage Eclipse later this spring for $2,500 for the 10.5-ft version or $2,600 for the 12-ft version. Video after the break. (more…)

Mansory Black Marlin Jet Ski

So your next door neighbor got a couple of new jet skis and is constantly washing them in the driveway. Seemingly rubbing it in that you don’t have any. Time to up your jet ski game with a Black Marlin Luxury Jet Ski ($62,000).

The Mansory Black Marlin Jet Ski is based on the Sea-Doo RXT-X 260 RS. It has plenty of carbon fiber which drops the weight by over 20-lbs.

The carbon-made structures, combined with the precise, hand-crafted modified seat made of special, seawater resistant artificial leather, make the Black Marlin a luxurious eye-catcher. A powerful engine conversion up to 550 hp is in the final testing stage.

Typically having your yacht underwater is a bad thing. Not if you are rich enough to own the Migaloo Submersible Yacht. This luxury watercraft gives its owners the best of both worlds. They can lounge at exotic ports or quickly disappear underwater for ultimate privacy. There are five models available from eh 72- meter M2 to the gigantic 283- meter M7. The Migaloo Submarines are made of a modern acrylic pressure hull to military safety standards. ...
