barbecue and boating, two of summer’s most indulged-in amusements, pool together in bbq donut — a circular sea cruiser fitted with a charcoal grill. the ten-seater sailer has a specially installed low-smoke BBQ at its core — for both safety and optimal social interaction — allowing you to feast on your favorite roasted treats while voyaging at sea. storage compartments and an adjustable sun shade are incorporated into the design, creating a comfortable atmosphere for all water-based party goers. bbq donut is the brainchild of german inventor and entrepreneur sebastian schmitt, whose quirky design is the realization of many summertime fantasies.

  • Very interested in this. Firebox are advertising at £20k. Is anyone else selling these? Great idea, just need to get trading license which is a little more difficult. Does it come on a trailer? Where can we view one in the flesh? How easy is it to launch? And what does 15mtr swirl mean?
