This is simply something to relax and have fun with, and you don’t even need a megayacht to use it. It’s an inflatable hot tub, for use while anchored at your favorite spot or even while resting dockside, whether you have a 20-footer or a 200-footer.
The patent-pending Yachtub from Yacht Products International is easy to use. Simply inflate it, fill it with water, and heat it using a portable electric heater or a minimum 8-kW genset. The Yachtub Plus model comes with a wireless remote so you can control filling, heating, circulation, and bubble options. When you’re done soaking, drain the water via the through-hull and deflate; once fully deflated, it fits into a 24"x22"x10" container, and the whole package weighs 50 pounds.
Pricing for the Yachtub starts at $2,995.
