60 Yacht and Boating Innovations

— October 12, 2008 — Autos
Luxury yachts are a must-have when you reach the level of the super wealthy. When the rich want to travel the seas, there are plenty of lavish floating homes to choose from. Wally, Porsche and Ferrari have designed opulent ships, some of which are even available to rent.

If you're looking for something a little more bizarre, there are flying boats, inflatable boats, and edible boats; solar-powered, wind-powered and people-powered boats. We've even seen a few real oddballs lately, one made out of a huge pumpkin and one in the shape of a giant guitar.

So if you're tired of the asphalt and want to hit the water, check out all these options.
