Watercraft fun for just $4,000

Motorized recreational vehicle for the whole family

Hammacher Schlemmer

Ah, summertime. The season of warm weather, vacations, barbecues and over-the-top recreational water products that cost thousands of dollars . We're glad to see that Hammacher Schlemmer didn't disappoint us in this category with the latest example of aquatic excess, the "Motorized Four-Person Lounger Boat" (catchy name).

This little watercraft may seem simple enough by appearances, but don't be fooled. Its features include a five-speed electric motor with three reverse speeds, a sealed compartment for two 12-volt batteries and an "ergonomic reclining mesh seat." How else can it justify its $4,000 price tag? OK, maybe not.
