Buy a BBQ Donut Boat for about £15,000
This little bit of marine excellence is one of the latest things to spring up on Firebox, in-fact the BBQ Donut has become so popular it has entered their top 50 products despite not having sold a single one.
But the BBQ Donut can be bought and delivered to anywhere around the world and this Ma-who-sive Donut is so much more than a BBQ/Boat/Donut.
Complete with Rain Canopy, Speakers, and Lighting the BBQ-Donut is the ultimate entertainment experience for you and 10 guests. Each place on the boat comes with cup holders and slatted places for all your food & drink to protect you from the gentle rocking of the sea, whilst you feast in this ridiculous contraption. (Obviously Ridiculous in a good way)!
How Much does a BBQ-Donut Boat Cost?
This seems to be the question most sought after. It is a bit pricey, there is no doubt about it. In fact it wouldn’t be on this list if it wasn’t. But the uniqueness of the boat and the fact that it is purely an item for fun, means that if you are considering owning one of these you probably won’t be that bothered by the big price tag.
Well for £15,000 (17,290 Euros) you get:
- The Basic Boat,
- and Petrol Motor.
But for an Extra £10,000…
You can add the trailer, and two 100 Watt Speakers and even add some fantastic LED lights for night time BBQ fun. all these little extras put together will add about £10,000 to the price tag, but for the ultimate intimate party boat…well you might as well.
There are of course cheaper options the basic model comes with just the Donut; no Motor, No canopy and comes in at around £11,500. But then what would be the point in owning a Party boat with no motor, no speakers and no cover????
