CBS Amazing Race Showcases Latest Private Yacht Charter Watertoy

Posted on

WHAT ARE THE NEWEST YACHT CHARTER TOYS?

The requirement for cutting-edge watertoys onboard private yacht charter vessels is nothing new.  There’s an ongoing battle between charter yacht owners to make sure their yacht has better toys than their competitor; hence the inclusion of jet packs, personal submarines, waterslides, and flying saucer-style waverunners.

 

PRESENTING THE WATER BIKE

now, a piece of exercise equipment found in nearly every superyacht gym – the stationary exercise bicycle – has crossed over to join the long list of “must-have” watertoys.

 

THE SCHILLER S1 – SOCIALLY-RESPONSIBLE TOY

Engineered for the water, the Schiller S1 water bike merges modern design, technology, and engineering, to deliver a stationary workout bicycle in an aquatic environment. Why stay cooped-up in a yacht’s gym, riding a stationary bike, when you can do your biking outdoors, on the water?

 

AS SEEN ON TV — ON THE AMAZING RACE

Fans of television’s, The Amazing Race on CBS, saw the Schiller S1 in action in the season premiere, as contestants peddled from Marina del Rey to Burton Chase Park in Los Angeles, California.

HOW DOES THE S1 WORK?

Upon first glance, the S1 looks large and bulky, until you realize the pontoons that keep it afloat and provide stability are inflatable.  In fact, the unit folds down to 3 cubic feet and only weighs 60 pounds – compact and light enough for any deckhand to carry and place the S1 near the swim platform for the use of the charter guests.

A drive train attached to the pedals connects to a small propeller.  The company reports a good rider can achieve a speed of 5 miles per hour.

 

YACHT CHARTER COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, believes eco-conscious travelers will appreciate this “green” watertoy.

We’re committed to increasing the eco-friendly yachting options we can offer our clients,” says Sheeder. “So many travelers are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint both at home and while on vacation.”  Sheeder continues, “The Schiller S1 waterbike is quiet, sustainable, and human-powered.  It’s part of a new generation of watertoys that merge the pleasures of a yachting vacation with the responsibilities of protecting our marine environment.

 

SHE CONTINUES

Sheeder concludes with a smile,

“…and as we saw on the season premiere of The Amazing Race, it’s a lot of fun!

 

 

A SOCIALLY-RESPONSIBLE GREEN VACATION

Enjoy the ultimate green vacation on a fully-crewed Virgin Islands catamaran yacht charter this winter. Catamaran sailboats are roomy, stable, loaded with watertoys.  They also utilize the clean energy of the wind to cruise through the water.
