Described as the most luxurious method of relaxation available with revolving scenery, an Hot Tub Boat provides a unique, one-of a kind, recreational activity by combining a standard hot tub and a classic boat design.
The idea was conceived by Adam Karpenske of Karpenske Marine Carpentry in Seattle, Washington. After several cold, rainy
winters living aboard a wooden boat, he decided an Hot Tub Boat would make a perfect addition to his live-aboard home and a
possible tender. Still in the ‘soft start’ phase, the goal is to have a rental fleet operational on Lake Union, Seattle, by the end of May this year while bespoke orders for purchase are now being taken.
The proto-type Hot Tub Boat was built and designed by Kelly Norton and Adam Karpenske, two Seattle shipwrights.
The Hot Tub Boat has been carefully designed and engineered.
It not only looks good but it has a very high load capacity. The hot tub has been carefully positioned on the boat’s centre of buoyancy allowing the boat to remain level and stable when dry or loaded.
Equipped with a small, diesel fired boiler to maintain the water temperature, you can drive the boat while lounging in the tub or seated on the aft deck via mechanical and/or remote steering and throttle.
Standard advice is that drinking and hot tubs don’t mix so alcohol is prohibited whilst aboard. Users are also asked to wear
appropriate swim attire and refrain from nudity while renting an Hot Tub Boat, ensuring all the important bits are covered.
