If you’re a houseboater looking for a secondary boat like a runabout, the HotTug might be exactly what you’re after. Designed by Supergoed, which is owned by Frank de Bruijn, the Hot Tug is a wood-fired hot tub that you can sail while you soak. The underwater stove heats the 2000 liters of water to a balmy 100 degrees F in just a few hours.
“It’s much more than a boat, it’s a vessel with different options. When the tug is filled, there is only a narrow rim between you and the water, making you feel at one with your surroundings,” De Bruyn says.
Whether you’re headed for a great spot to swim or floating in place to appreciate the stillness of the scenery, the HotTug is perfect for having a carefree time relaxing on the water.
De Bruijn, who has already created many beautifully quirky and functional designs, adds, “The feel of the outdoors is very important to me. Now the HotTug is expanding my work horizon to the water as well.”
The HotTug is only a few months old but already met great attention during its debut at the Hiswa boat show in Amsterdam this past September. HotTugs aren’t only available abroad; check out HotTug USA or call 804-837-0328 if you’re interested in jumping aboard.
