Featured Superyacht Watertoy: The Floating Trampoline
Inflatable waterpark toys are some of the hottest toys on the superyacht market at present, with inflatable trampolines proving an extremely popular feature on yachts for charter.
In the past, the majority of yacht toys were equipment that allowed you to travel away from the yacht, such as Jetskis and kayaks. While these watertoys continue to be wildly popular, there’s now also a huge demand for inflatable toys that are tethered to the yacht, such as floating trampolines, climbing gyms, and waterslides.
These kinds of stationary watertoys are wonderful for family yacht charters in particular, as they give children a place to spend hours happily playing within metres of the yacht under the watchful eye of parents and crew.
A trampoline is particularly useful as a dual-use watertoy as it acts as a floating platform, thereby extending the yacht’s ‘real estate’ on the water. After all, trampolines are great for the kids (and big kids) to spend hours somersaulting and divebombing into the water from, but they also act as a floating lounge platform to relax and sunbathe on after your swim, feeling the movement of the water beneath you. A yacht trampoline is an ideal watertoy for all ages, whether you’re in the mood for adrenaline activities…or an afternoon snooze.
Because they are inflatable and roll up very small when deflated, floating trampolines make a superb watertoy for luxury yachts of any size. Floating trampolines are a crowd-pleaser on charter, with the yachts carrying them in high demand.
One charter yacht with a floating trampoline in their toy chest is M/Y THREE FORKS, a stunning 49m American-built yacht from Christensen. Accommodating up to 12 guests in six elegant and spacious staterooms, special features of THREE FORKS include her beautiful cherry wood and marble interior, large sundeck Jacuzzi, and an elevator running between all decks.
This luxury charter motoryacht is a superb choice for families and groups who enjoy watersports, with other watertoys onboard including Jetskis and Waverunners, a Brownie’s Third Lung, fishing gear, towable toys, wakeboards, and paddleboards. M/Y THREE FORKS is available for charter in the Bahamas, Caribbean, and the US East Coast regions, with a weekly rate starting from $199,000.
