These days most of the yachts featured in both of our annual “100 Largest Yachts” lists tout a large tender (quite often, more than one) and sometimes even a helicopter, perfect for getting yourself to shore. But wouldn’t it be nice to also have a car onboard for use when you’re side- or stern-to? Well, California-based Commuter Cars Corporation has one that’s a perfect fit no matter what size yacht you own. It’s called the Tango.

This zero-emission, battery-powered “car” is just 38 inches wide and 8'5" long, which is shorter and narrower than many motorcycles, making it easy to stow. That means hassle-free parking no matter where you are. Tango features tandem seating and reportedly has a 50-mile range before its current battery (the manufacturer is still fine-tuning things) needs recharging, accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds, and tops out at 130 mph.

Prices begin at $10,000 and increase depending on options. It is available directly from the company.
