With Christmas fast approaching, now is the time to get your wish list at the ready or to think about treating someone special to a gift that they’ll adore. Here is our list of the top boat toys to put under the tree this Christmas…
If you love surfing or wakeboarding, the Radinn Wakejet is the perfect toy for you. This electric powered surfboard propels you along at up to 47 kph whilst you carve it up on flat water or over some waves for a fun filled adrenaline rush. With a carbon construction and a 100% waterproof shell rated to 2 metres, the Radinn Wakejet weighs in at only 35 kg, making it super agile for optimum performance. The lithium-ion batteries only take 2 hours to charge so you can be back out on the water in no time and with no oil changes to deal with this is a very low maintenance toy for your yacht. You don’t even need to worry about noise disturbance, as the Radinn Wakejet’s 15 hp brushless DC motor is super quiet.
Getting out and about whilst onshore is made easy with the ergonomic and stylish Gocycle electric bike. Designed specifically for easy transportation, the Gocycle folds down to a compact 600 x 760 x 300mm making onboard storage simple. Plus, with no chain, sprockets or oil to contend with, the Gocycle is clean and simple to maintain and a handy carry case is available to keep the bike protected and neatly tidied away. The 22V lithium batteries charge in 5.5 hours and can last up to 64 km in range, depending on how hard you pedal, so you can go and explore with ease. Plus, the two wheel drive system with a power assist will help you reach speeds of up to 25 kph getting you from A to B quickly and efficiently.
SUPs have fast become the toy to have if you want to drop anchor and get off the boat for a bit of simple, hassle free fun on the water, whether it’s to keep fit, explore or simply float and relax in your own secluded bay. Red Paddle’s unique MSL fusion composite and airtight coating means their inflatable SUPs are stiff but lightweight and durable, giving you a board that will float and glide through the water with ease and comfort. Inflating and deflating the board is simple, meaning you can easily store the SUP onboard your boat and everything can be packed away into a neat carry bag when not in use.
If you want to capture all of those precious and special moments whilst onboard your boat, the DJI Mavic Pro should be top of your wish list this Christmas. Small and compact but packing in an impressive amount of powerful features, this is a toy you can have lots of fun with on your sailing adventures. The Mavic Pro has a state-of-the-art transmission system with a 4.3 mile range, 5 vision sensors, a 4K camera and 3-axis mechanical gimbal for stabilisation. With a flight time of 27 minutes you’ll never have to rush, and this nifty little drone can reach impressive speeds of up to 40mph in sport mode. The in-built FlightAutonomy ensures the Mavic Pro avoids obstacles, and with several cameras, it can hover with great precision over any object you choose, or even track your subject automatically.
With a powerful e-jet power system, a streamlined hydrodynamic shape and 10% more thrust than previous Seabob models, the F5SR can propel you through the water at speeds of up to 20kph. The lightest Seabob yet, the F5SR is controlled using simple body movements, making it easy to manoeuvre and allowing you to glide through the water with complete freedom. Furthermore, with the ability to dive to depths of up to 40 metres, you can immerse yourself in a far-reaching underwater world of fun and discovery.
