Not only is a luxury yacht charter synonymous with exclusivity, indulgence and freedom, it is also a unique platform to enjoy thrill-seeking activities both above and below the water surface in areas only accessible by yacht. The key to planning an active yacht charter vacation is to ensure the water toys and watersports available are a good match for you and your loved ones while onboard your yacht.
Today’s modern yachts are host to a fabulous array of water toys and tenders operated by an encouraging crew to facilitate your adventures while on anchor. Whether you are looking to venture further afield by jet ski or waterski, enjoy a peaceful morning paddle, entertain the children for hours on end with inflatables and towable toys, or to explore beneath the waves via seabob, scuba and snorkel, the crew will make sure that the water toys are ready to go!
Water toys and watersports are particularly important for those planning a family vacation or a milestone celebration on a crewed yacht. At the end of the day, it is all about fun and a luxury yacht is the ultimate playground for both adults and children. Below, you will find the most desired water toys to inspire you for your next ultimate yacht charter experience.
Stand up paddleboards
Stand up paddleboarding, or SUP, is the world’s fastest growing water sport, and has gained immense popularity in the past couple of years. Paddleboarding is a fun way to be close to nature with the added benefits of a full body workout. SUP is a low impact sport and with the wide board versatility, makes it a great activity for everyone to enjoy, no matter your skill level or what type of paddleboarding you would like to do.
Kneeboarding is a great way to introduce kids and adults to towed watersports. It involves more skill than tubing, but isn’t as difficult as waterskiing or wakeboarding. Learning how to kneeboard is usually the logical next step once your kids start to get a little bored with tubing. Some call it kneeboard surfing, but it is long been known as kneeboarding for short. The kneeboard has been around for almost half a century and was presented as a new way to get people on the water and behind a boat or a yacht.
Often described as a blend of snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding, wakeboarding involves the use of one wide board instead of two long planks, as in waterskiing. The rider uses rubber bindings to keep their feet on the board and steers the board in much the same way as a snowboarder. Wakeboarding can be a little scary at first, but once you have picked up the basics, wakeboarding is extremely fun to do. Gliding above the water is a real buzz and learning to ride the yacht’s wake -hence the sport’s name – is even more exhilarating. Once you have ridden a wakeboard, there is a good chance you will become addicted!
Mountain thrill meets the ocean. This is one of the only water toys that suits the whole family, accommodating both kids and adults for hours of fun and laughter. If you have never tried it before, it really isn’t as difficult as it may appear! Waterskiing is a fun sport, and generally involves you standing on two specially designed skis, and towed behind your yacht. Did you know that waterskiing was invented in 1922 by Ralph Samuelson in America, who used two boards and a clothes line attached to a boat and that it is now an Olympic sport?
Believe it or not, but going for a swim is not for everyone! Jet skis are a fun way to enjoy the water, when you ride your jet ski you can be on the water without ever getting into it. Just hop on the jet ski and have some fun with your friends and family! Jet skis are easy to control, a few simple instructions from your crew are enough to get you going, even if it is your first time. They are extravagant and creative toys which excite everyone on board. Great for those looking for a dynamic adventure away from your anchorage and a bit of friendly competition between friends.
If you like to explore while swimming, seabobs are a must-have toy and a great alternative to traditional snorkeling. This electric underwater scooter will pull you through the water at comfortable speed so you can cover a long distance without burning all your energy. Above or below water level, you decide! Explore the marine life in a peaceful manner, with no need for flapping about with flippers. The seabob will take you under water where you can glide along calmly and quietly, it is a far easier way to propel yourself along than with your own feet.
A diving air compressor is a high pressure air compressor system that can provide breathing air directly to a surface supplied diver. The compressor system is designed to fill the tank that a diver uses to breathe underwater.
Get close to the water with a wide range of inflatable toys, perfect for towing from your yacht or tender. Inflatables such as donuts and bananas are great for bouncing over the waves at speed and really test your hanging on skills. It’s also great entertainment for those who are watching from the safety of the yacht!
All these water toys see your exclusive floating paradise extended to an entire oceanic playground. Whether it’s zipping through the open waters on a jet ski as a sea breeze hugs your skin, or admiring nature’s finest below the surface on a seabob adventure, water toys certainly enliven any yacht charter vacation and are an integral part of your unforgettable time onboard. Which water toy is your favorite? You and your friends and family can try out all of them during your next luxury yacht charter!
