A new product making waves is the JetSurf, a revolutionary new motorized surf board that is fast becoming a must-have for superyacht owners and charter guests. Designed to be used as a standalone toy, as well as for competitive racing, this fast, light board combines advanced motorsport technology with on-water fun, reaching impressive speeds of up to 55km/h.
Flavien believes the JetSurf is the perfect fit for superyachts. “It creates a unique feeling on the water – a mix of snowboarding, surfing, jetskiing and riding a motorbike – and is amazingly versatile and can be used to explore the coast cruising; race on flat water, freeride behind a tender and more, the jetsurf is a unique freedom watersport experience with no comparative ” he says. “Guests can have many different unique experiences with just this one product and it is very easy to use and accessible for everyone.” At just 12kg, it doesn’t require special storage or a crane to launch it into the water, making it ideal for yacht crew to easily bring out for guests to use.
As well as the JetSurf, Flavien has plenty of recommendations for what else is up and coming and well worth a look for yacht owners . “One exciting new tender is the Anvera 55 ‘tender toy’, which is an amazing mix between a chase tender, a mini shadow boat; a limo tender and a day boat,” he says. Able to carry up to 16 passengers and reach speeds of 48knots, the Anvera 55’s features include a 20sqm aft platform, internal storage for water toys and a crane system for jetskis, and is perfect for day excursions away from the main superyacht to explore, enjoy water sports and more.
For those wanting to capture all their action on the water the Splash Drone Auto + is the perfect toy. The world’s first amphibious and waterproof drone, it is able to land, float and cruise on the water, and supplies a live video transmission back to the user. “The Splash Drone is extremely yacht friendly and is an ideal toy for sailors, boat owners and water sport enthusiasts,” says Flavien, who is passionate about helping yacht guests enjoy their time on the water.
