Engineered and built in Seattle, the hull of the 16-foot is handcrafted from African teak. But it’s what’s inside that makes the boat so unique.

The Hot Tub Boat is built around just that, a hot tub measuring eight feet long and holding up to 2,100 pounds of water and six adult bathers. The diesel-powered boiler heats the tub to a maximum of 104 degrees Fahrenheit, and comes with an adjustable thermostat.

There's also a waterproof stereo system to play music from your MP3 player while you sail along, as well as four ice chests built into the deck and a teak swim-step to allow for easy entry to and from the water.

The boat is powered by a 24-volt electric motor and can travel at top speeds of 5 mph. It is steered by a joystick on the starboard side and has a rechargeable battery bank that provides 10 hours of power from one overnight charge.
