Superyachts are the ultimate platform on which to enjoy a holiday of a lifetime, but there’s a whole lot more to a charter vacation than lying horizontal on a sunpad. All yachts will have invested in a decent array of water toys designed to keep guests of all ages engaged and entertained. That said, some yachts choose to go the extra mile, and stand out from the charter crowd for their wow-factor menu of the latest high-tech equipment.
Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or keen on exploring below the waves, the growing range of marine toys, gizmos and gadgets are designed to thrill. The gentler options include stand up paddle boards, kayaks and snorkel gear for splashing about in the shallows. Those who seek something more uptempo may enjoy wakeboarding, water skiing, seabobs and jet skis for tearing around on. For the advanced, the best toy boxes on the market include electric surfboards, foil boards that use hydrofoils to fly above water, flyboards that propel you into the sky like Ironman, and even private submersibles for diving deeper than scuba gear will permit. Producing the loudest laughs of all (and competitive spirit) is the array of inflatables, from slides and climbing walls, to Olympic assault courses and every conceivable towable out there, each one guaranteed to make a splash.
