74 Boats for Summer

From Sailing Serving Sets to Oil Tanker Toys

— July 15, 2009 — Autos
Summer usually means ice cream and bright clothes, but why not throw in the necessity of boats?

The boats in this cluster range from solar boat racing and amphibian ATVs to the world's largest illuminated boat parade.

Can't you just picture yourself on a sailing boat right now, soaking up the sun?

Implications - I sure can, especially when I feast my eyes on these intensely supercharged water craft. The age of sail may just be a memory, but the age of intense surface beasts has only just begun. Whether you're a multimillionaire with money to spare or a speed fiend looking for something to drool over, these ideas are definitely worth your time.
