The BBQ-Donut is a floating party table. This invention is actually a boat with a very quiet, electric motor on board. It seats 10 people around a BBQ pit/table and includes a stereo system, coolers under the seats, and a sunshade above the rider's heads.

Implications - Barbecues and group get-togethers are an essential aspect of summer fun, and designers are increasingly pushing the envelope with creations that cater to this niche in new and innovative ways. Simultaneously, luxury consumers often use the summer BBQ as a way to showcase their luxurious lifestyle. By fusing barbecues, sunbathing and watercrafts, this particular designer created a floating party table that serves a fervent -- albeit quite focused -- target consumer.
