We looked at the picture Dave had snapped, and he was right – it seems yacht owners
wanting to give their guests the option to indulge in off-board relaxation
can now do so by offering use of a portable sea cabana.
Designed by the USA-based ParrLuxe company, the cabana is intended as a solution to the problem of guests on large charter yachts having to walk up several levels to sunbathe, and then down the same levels to access a swim platform for a dip in the sea.
With room for 15 to 20 people, the cabana inflates in 15 minutes from a small air compressor, and comes complete with wraparound seating, a stainless steel swim ladder with teak steps, and a rigid carbon-fiber canopy frame.
ParrLuxe also offers a cabana with a natural swimming-pool option – a net-covered hole in the floor of the cabana lets in sea water, while keeping out jellyfish.
As our reader Dave pointed out, the cabana can also be tethered behind a boat, making it
ideal for children to use.
The “Sea Cabana” is available in black, white, and turquoise, and is priced at $35,000.
