All it takes is some air to get it up and running. Yep, it's an inflatable speed boat. What a time to be alive, right?
Every movie, every TV series, seem to have a couple of high school friends all chilling by the sea on their own private yacht and we'd be lying if we haven't wondered how it'd feel to cruise in that. But, not everyone has the budget to afford one of those, and not everyone is on the set of a movie production, so we settle for less. Let's face it, we lack the money to buy a boat and the skills and knowledge to maintain one. Luckily for us, someone's come up with a much cheaper version of it, and all it takes is some air, to get it up and running. Yep, it's an inflatable speed boat. What a time to be alive, right?
It says the boat can take around 6 people, but it looks like at least 8-10 people can fit in, easily. The boat also features a large circular seating area in the rear of the boat that has an opening in the center so that your feet can go in the water. Plus, just like how it is in a real boat, there's space for a couple of people to sit right up front. HOW COOL IS THAT? Honestly, it looks so real.
Other features in the life-size inflatable boat include a blow-up windshield with openings that make it look like windows, an entrance ramp so people can get in and out of the water, and 6 cup holders built into the seating. It even comes with a built-in cooler within the seating area so that your beverages remain ice-cold. The giant life-size inflatable speed boat measures about 20 feet long x 10 feet wide x 3 feet tall and weighs 62 lbs when not inflated.
The inflatable boat has a weight limit of 1,300 lbs and can be used with oars to move around the water, though it's meant more so to be used with an anchor to just hang out on a lake and look totally awesome doing so while chilling with a few of your closest pals! It takes about 20 minutes to inflate the whole thing, and while oars can be used to move the boat, it does not come with it as it was meant to be an inflatable island.

Stephen Kaye wasn't too happy with the pricing: “And great news! It only costs as much as an actual speed boat!! How cool!!” James Stoavoidscammers wrote: If it had a mod for maybe a 7.5 horse engine or a large Trolling motor this would maybe be good for a few people going scuba at a local lake. Ram Fam stated a few facts: Yeah but notice nothing harder or sharper than the human fingernail allowed on board. And no kids!
Margaree Burton added: So do you ask someone who can afford the real thing to tow you out to the middle of the lake? D.J. Harrod added: I can’t sleep on an air mattress without my ass hitting the floor at 1 am, but there’s a speed boat?

Harrod commented: Much like dudes on motorcycles laugh at dudes on mopeds. You too can advertise your broke, but wish you weren’t!
