Its a cool, rainy day in the Netherlands. You have a beautiful home on the water, and you'd love to use your new open bow boat, but your wife (who's a Dutch model) doesn't dig the idea. Thats where the HotTug comes in...
The HotTug is completely pointless, yet still so awesome that you'd buy a fleet of them if you won the Mega Millions (my numbers are 16-19-25-49-52 / 10), then paint them pink and donate all 26 boats to charity.
From HotTug: "The first wood-fired hot tub boat in the world!
With and without water the HotTug is an extremely stable boat for up to six to eight people. Chilling in this hottub while cruising through canals or on a romantic lake is an amazing sensation!
In every weather condition, you can fire it up in about 2.5 hours and enjoy the 38 degree Celsius (100 degrees F.) warm water."
So, it takes almost 3 hours to warm up the HotTug, completely ruining your Dutch model of a wife's appetite (wink wink). This thing is still pointless.
But, assuming you get it warmed up, your wife isn't pissed, and you don't set yourself on fire, you are ready for some smooth sailing. Fire up you MinnKota 2.4 KW electric engine and you'll enjoy 2.5 hours out on the lake (with options up to 8 hours).
The basic HotTug starts at about $11,500. Fully optioned, you are looking at $21,500. Don't want to take the life savings plunge yet? You can rent a HotTug at this place (how the heck is that pronounced?)
