Imagine this, chilling in your private yacht while it floats on the vast blue sea with the wind continuously caressing your hair. Isn't that the dream? You would be lying if you say you have never for once imagined how it would feel like to cruise on those private yachts, especially if you live by the sea. But in reality, not everyone has the means or skills to afford such an expensive pastime. Thankfully for people like us, someone has come up with a much cheaper alternative that just requires air. You guessed it right, it's an inflatable boat that will help you relax without spending loads of money.

So, this boat seats 6 people, however, it does look like it can easily fit around 8-10 people. Just because it's inflatable doesn't mean that the creator didn't think about the design. In fact, the boat features a large circular seating area in the rear end of the boat that also has an opening in the center for you to dunk your feet in the water. Just like a real boat, there's space for a couple of people to sit right up front and enjoy a great view.

The life-size inflatable boat has many other impressive features, like a blow-up windshield which has openings that make it look like windows, 6 cup holders which are built into the seating, an entrance ramp which helps people get in and out of the water. The amazing boat also comes with a built-in cooler within the seating area for you to keep your beverages ice-cold at all times. Weighing about 62 pounds the giant boat measures about 20 feet long x 10 feet wide x 3 feet tall when it is not inflated. The boat can bear a maximum weight of 1,300 pounds and can be operated used oars to move around the water.

That's being said, it is mainly meant to be used with an anchor to just hang out on a lake or any permitted water body and looking totally awesome while chilling with a few of your closest friends. Speaking of how easy it is to get it float-ready, the boat takes about 20 minutes to inflate completely and oars can be used to move it around. But the product doesn't come with oars as they are meant to be an inflatable island. The product is definitely one which will engage your whole family and thus could be an excellent gift for your loved ones during the summers.

"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," continued the website which has priced it at $279.99. Several customers reviewed the product on Amazon and one of them was Andra64 who expressed her concerns about the high price tag. This item would have great potential if it were made of stronger thicker material. For the amount of money it costs over $300, it’s very cheaply made and will break easily. I would not recommend this product unless you are ok with losing your money. It didn’t even last an hour and took a long time to inflate. The seller wasn’t concerned with my loss either, never making this mistake again, wrote Andra64.

But Philip Harman was completely impressed by the product and also gave it five stars. I took the boat out on the Potomac last weekend with a couple of 12 packs and some young girls. It was truly a spectacle. Every dad on the river floated by and said “wow.” Word to the wise: you need a set or oars or paddles to steer it. Otherwise, you’ll ruffle a few feathers when you float into a rock or some tall grass, they wrote. Another JMorton, expressed, Used this for the first time on the Fourth of July. It was a blast. It's a bit of a chore to inflate but worth it. Everyone loved it. The sheer size of it just makes you laugh. We bought it for the kids, but the adults spent most of the time enjoying it. We leashed it to the dock on a very long line and used a paddle to guide it. It deflated easily with an electric pump but was a bit heavy to lift out of the water. Although we bought it as a novelty item, I hope it lasts.
