Hot Tug – Leisurely Boating

Like boating? Like relaxing in the hot tub?  Why not combine the two?  From the Nederlands company Hot Tug, the Hot Tug is a boat and a hot tub all in one.  It’s a stable boat capable of  taking six to eight people, but it can also be filled with water and turned into a wood-fired hot tub boat.  In 2.5 hours you can be soaking in water at 38 degree Celsius (100 degrees F.) while boating around that lake or canal.

It’s constructed of wood and glass fibre-reinforced polyester; options include a stainless steel wood burning heater and electric motor.

Prices start at € 8.950 ($11,620) for the boat alone, or add the wood heater and 400Ah electric motor for € 16.450 ($21,360)

    How do you know if the boat is not sinking? How do you tell if the boat is in hot-tub mode or taking in water?&lt /sour grapes &gt

    How would you empty this? Wearing that mandated life jacket might be a challenge. But I love that you could get the temperature up to higher to cook that freshly caught fish!
