When it comes to the dozens and dozens of different ways to enjoy a hot summer day, it doesn't really get much better than spending time on a boat. Whether you're looking for a relaxing day of floating on the water, an epic party with family and friends, or just a mode of transportation to take you from the shore to the local swimming hole, the boat lifestyle caters to pretty much any type of vibe.
That being said, boats aren't cheap. There's the vessel itself, and then there's all the money you need to invest in maintenance. Shelling out thousands and thousands for a top-of-the-line boat experience isn't all that uncommon. Fortunately, the good people over at Sun Pleasure Inflatable figured out a way to make boat life fun AND affordable in the form of this the 6-Person Inflatable Bay Breeze Boat Island Party Island, which is a pool raft, a party island, and an on-land lounger all-in-one.
While this product is marketed as maxing out at a 6-person party, it measures in at 20 feet long x 10 feet wide x 3 feet tall and has a total weight capacity of around 1,300 pounds, so you can definitely fit a few more people onboard.
Just take a quick look at the product specs, and you'll see just how incredible and versatile this inflatable boat really is.
The float includes an inflated rear swim platform with five handles for easy mounting and dismounting, eight cup holders, and a built-in cooler. An inflatable bench seat provides comfortable seating for plenty of friends to hang out.
You can use it on land or water, as poolside furniture, on your patio or deck-any location. The simple to use safety valve makes inflating and deflating fast and easy, allowing you to inflate to your desired comfort level. Add more air for more firmness, less air for more softness. The inflatable float is the perfect way to combine big relaxation and big recreation in your backyard swimming pool, lake, bay or even on the lawn.
The best part? You can buy it on Amazon for only $220. What a steal!
After purchasing your life-size speed boat, you'll also probably want to get a couple accessories as well. You'll definitely need an air pump, since the boat doesn't come equipped with one of those. The Intex Quick-Fill Rechargeable Air Pump will cost you only around $20 and is designed for optimum portability. It also comes with a 12-Volt DC power adapter for vehicle charging and is equipped with three interconnecting nozzles, so you can use the pump to fill up just about any device and get the most possible use out of it.
While you can use oars to paddle your inflatable boat from point A to point B, it's primarily meant for stationary water fun. That's where the Complete Grapnel Anchor System by Airhead comes into play.
Weighing a little over three pounds, this anchor will hold in just about any underwater terrain and can be used on anything from a sailboat to a float boat. The 25-foot-long rope ensures that no depths are too great, and the padded nylon storage case is a nice additional touch.
Whether you're looking for a party boat to take out on the lake, a relaxing inflatable floating island for the pool, or just a backyard fixture with drink holders and backrests for that next BBQ, the inflatable boat from Sun Pleasure Inflatable is a must-have for this summer.
