‘the hot tub boat’



engineered and built in seattle, by a marine carpenter ‘the hot tub boat’ utilizes a vinyl-ester hull topped with a slatted deck handcrafted from african teak. positioned on the vessel’s center of buoyancy, the vessel provides exceptional stability –  drafting only 20 inches, even when filled with its maximum load of 2,100 lbs of water and six adult bathers.


an integrated diesel-powered boiler with an adjustable thermostat heats the tub’s water to a maximum 104° F – also powering the built-in waterproof MP3 stereo system plays through its two flush-mounted 50-watt speakers that pop-up from the deck. a 24-volt electric motor propels the boat up to 8 km/h on calm water, steered via a joystick. a rechargeable battery provides up to 10 hours of power from an overnight charge using its built-in ‘smart plug shore power connection’ and on-board chargers.
