We've all gazed enviously at millionaires in their speedboats and wished we could be them. Well, there's no luck on that millionaire thing yet, but you can have the speedboat! In inflatable form, anyway...
Amazon is selling a life-size inflatable speedboat just in time for summer, and it's as close to the real thing as many of us are going to get!
The Inflatable Bay Breeze Boat Party Island is perfect for those who want to live a luxury lifestyle, but don't have the funds to pay for the real deal.
The mega-sized pool lounger is designed to fit six people, whether this be you, your partner and all the kids, or you and five friends, all with strawberry daiquiris in hand.
The float includes an inflated rear swim platform with five handles for easy mounting and dismounting, eight cup holders and a built-in cooler to chill your beer. It also boasts an inflatable bench seat that you can laze on while staring out into the great unknown (or, you know, the side of your pool).
The life-size inflatable speed boat measures about 20 feet long x 10 feet wide x 3 feet tall and weighs about 60 pounds.
According to customer questions and answers on Amazon, it takes roughly 20 minutes to fully inflate - much less time than it'll take you to earn the millions to pay for an actual speedboat.
So, speaking of money, how much do you and your five friends have to fork out to race away this summer? Prices on Amazon currently start from $216.79 (£171.09) and go up to $269.99 (£213.08).
But what price can you really put on fun like that?
