Monaco19: FunAir launches Toy Island

ADVERTISEMENT

Texas-based inflatables company FunAir has launched its newest yacht inflatable Toy Island during the Monaco Yacht Show this year. Already in use aboard M/Y Latitude, Toy Island is designed to dock a variety of watercrafts away from the yacht so that multiple activities can happen at the same time. It can be attached to the swim platform or tethered to it and floating behind. It can also be tethered from a secluded beach or jetty and used to securely dock watercrafts during beach days.

The platform provides a central seat where guests can rest between activities, sit down to swap safety gear, or to wait for other guests. It comes equipped with a set of FunAir Sea Stairs to allow guests of all ages to walk up and out of the sea. 

As designed, it can hold up to four personal watercraft such as Jet Skis or foiling boards and sailboats that have fins. It can also dock two underwater watercraft such as SeaBobs and SUPs. But it is customizable to fit any combination of items.

Inflated, it measures 6 square meters at its largest points. It packs down to 120cm x 80cm x 40cm and weighs 105kg.

Toy Island is deployed in the water outside the Captain & Crew Lounge just outside of the Yacht Club de Monaco.
