The Top 7 Water Toys of 2016

As 2016 draws to a close, you will undoubtedly see many “Top lists of 2016” on a variety of subjects, from the top ten trendy foods, to the best movies of the year. But, only on the pages of 26 North Yacht’s blog, will you find the list of the Top 7 Water Toys of 2016!

Drones – Drones, or remote control aircraft, have become increasingly popular over the last few years. What has been up until recently a land based hobby, a high-end drone was the “must have” toy among yacht owners and on yacht charters in 2016. Drones on yachts are being used for everything from documenting your voyage, to the emerging sport of drone surfing!

Seabob – The Seabob, always a popular water toy, became even more popular in 2016, with the introduction of several new models. The Seabob and similar underwater scooters, allow you to “fly” underwater, providing the perfect combination of relaxing underwater observations, and adrenaline rush!


Personal Submarines – 2016 was the year of the ultimate water toy, the personal submarine. Yacht owners embraced their in “Captain Nemos” with such extravagant personal watercraft as the DeepFlight Dragon and Seabreacher X.

Electric Surfboards – Personal powered surfboards were the rage in 2016, such as the Lampuga power board which is built out of carbon fiber and powered by lithium-ion batteries, so it runs quiet and does not require any fuel.

The Humdinga – Not every high-end water toy is restricted to the water! The Humdinga is a high-speed amphibious truck that can bring you on inland adventures in ways no ordinary yacht tender can!

Quadski XL – The Quadski XL was another amphibious vehicle that was a hit at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show. Not a truck/tender like the Humdinga, the Quadski is more a combination Jet-ski and ATV for on-water and off-road fun!

Human Hamster Ball – Maybe not as high-tech as some of the other ultimate water toys on this list, but the human hamster ball from Zorb, sure is a lot of fun!
