Top 4 luxury yacht toys for 2014

Picture the scene – it’s mid-August 2014, you’re at anchor in the bay of St. Tropez aboard your luxury charter yacht. The sun is beating down, the breeze is gentle and the sea refreshing…you’ve just finished sipping your (first) perfectly created Mojito cocktail, the crew are preparing more; and, stretched out on the sun pad, you start to nod off to the chirping Riviera cicadas… Rudely interrupting this doze you here the cry “Mum, Dad, we’re bored here!”. Yes, it’s the dreaded teenagers! Well this post shows you all the very latest yacht toys for 2014, guaranteed to keep the most demanding teenagers entertained – from water jet packs, to amphibious landing vehicles! Yacht toy The very latest craze for private charter yachts is the JetLev Flyer, a personal water jetpack that allows charter guests to fly up to 30ft in the air at speeds of over 30 mph! This is the ultimate water sports luxury toy giving the rider the exhilarating feel of personal flight and total freedom. The first luxury yacht to offer this toy is yacht “Amarula Sun” a 40m tri-deck which also features a 45ft water slide from the top deck of the yacht, 2 x Seadoo 215 hp jet skis, and a 32ft Everglades fishing boat – boredom is not an option on this yacht! Yacht toy Next is the private beach club and inflatable water park! Yacht “Titania” features the very latest water park with water slides, climbing frame, Zorb ball, and sea trampoline to name just a few of the features. After the kids get bored with this, then it’s time to open up the private beach club in the yacht’s transom…and launch the sailing dinghies, kayaks, windsurfer, scuba gear, water skis, and jet skis! Yacht toy The evening draws in, the remains of your delicious al fresco diner is being cleared away by the crew; time to retire indoors for a movie. But on the “Maltese Falcon” sailing yacht, you can enjoy the world’s largest outdoor cinema screen on any yacht! Viewed from the comfort of the sundeck loungers, the film is projected up onto remote controlled square rig sails, and sound is provided by state-of-the-art Bose surround sound systems. The whole system is linked up to Apple TV and Sky Movies, so you’ll never be short of blockbuster movies to keep the kids (and adults!) entertained.

It’s very important to be seen in the right type of tender…you want something that reflects how much you’ve spent on chartering a luxury yacht in the first place! So for something really unique, it’s time to bring out the amphibious vehicle! No need to try and find a taxi, and you don’t even need to get sand in your shoes, just simply drop the wheels and you’re away! The first signs of spring are now here, and summer is only just around the corner – so don’t delay, now is the time to arrange your luxury yacht charter before all the best water toys get booked up!
