Imagine watching the sunset as you bathe in your warm hot tub, the glow of the setting sun turning your skin different shades of orange and pink. Now imagine relaxing like this out in the open water. This isn’t so easy to imagine unless you’ve got a hot tub sitting on a yacht. Good news is you no longer need a yacht to enjoy a moment like such. Rotterdam-based designer Frank de Bruijn has come up with a one-of-a-kind and luxurious boat that also serves as a hot tub. If you don’t believe it, you should.
The HotTug Hot Tub Boat is possibly one of the most unique and creative luxurious vehicles that’s ever been made for the water. It is essentially a small boat. It’s made out of hulled wood and fitted with fiberglass-reinforced polyester. It has a steering system that will allow you to navigate in any body of water. For power, it can be equipped with either a 2.4 KW electric motor with outboard engine or an electric Minnkota RT 160 EM motor, 12-volt batteries, and a charger. It comes in a variety of colors such as red, green, yellow, blue, and black. The HotTug measures a decent 8 feet x 12.5 feet x 3.6 feet, enough to fit a good group of 6 to 8 people comfortably. It has seating much like a traditional hot tub would have and some room to move around in as well.
This is great if you really want to get the party going. The boat itself will work without having to be used as a hot tub, but that’s not really what the HotTug was made for. The HotTug can hold over 500 hundred gallons of water, which can be heated up to 100 degrees F in roughly 2.5 hours using a stainless steel, wood-burning stove. You can take this out to sea in any weather, even in the winter, because the stove is guaranteed to fire up its the wood regardless of the weather condition.
The places you can go to and things you can do with this HotTug Hot Tub Boat are limited only by your imagination. You can ride the HotTug with a party or even go on a solo relaxation as needed. You can take it to the Bahamas or just enjoy it off the coast of Miami. You can even take the boat on a nice, serene lake and have a romantic evening with a special someone. Nothing will stop you also from taking the boat on a simple boat ride along the river without using the hot tub option. You can literally take the HotTug anywhere and be satisfied with it.
We can all thank designer Bruijn for making all of our lives just a little bit more fun with the HotTug. It’s just the perfect combination for anyone who loves being out in the ocean and being able to relax in warm water. Otherwise, it is still a great boat to use just to cruise without the use of the hot tub.
