Soak and Sail

Combine a boat and a hot tub to get the summer's swaggest ship


Sailing on Lake Union is a blast, but have you ever wished it was a little warmer?

There's a simple solution, buddy: rent a hot tub boat.

These six-person watercraft are constructed around a hot tub body that keeps the interior water at a perky 100 degrees.

A joystick in the tub means you don't even have to get out to drive. And the 25-volt electric motor brings it up to a maximum speed of 5 mph on calm water — perfect for a leisurely cruise.

These aren't funky Fat Albert-style junkyard boats, either. They're high-end, with African teak decks, a waterproof stereo, and four built-in coolers.

If you really dig the experience, you can even buy one for a cool $42,000.

The only thing they ask is that you keep your clothes on when you're out on the water. The only thing we ask is that you bring a damn good waterproof case for your phone.
