Who knew that Army Surplus fuel bladders could be turned into one of the hottest watertoys? That’s the background behind the WaterBlob, and it’s now offered to the megayacht set by Superyacht Tenders & Toys.
If you’ve ever watched the TV program “Wipeout,” in which contestants go head to head on wild and wacky obstacle courses, you’ve seen the WaterBlob in action. It’s a giant, pillow-shaped inflatable toy that makes you bounce—and bounce really high—when you land on it. The WaterBlob, manufactured in the United States, is made of rubber and has an additional layer of vinyl to make it more durable and thereby prevent rupture. It further has four anchor points and comes with eight shock cords measuring eight feet long to anchor it down. When you’re done for the day, the WaterBlob gets folded and rolled up and then stowed in its own shell cover.
The WaterBlob carries a one-year warranty on materials and labor; the manufacturer claims the watertoys lasts on average five to seven years. It comes in a variety of colors, too.
Shipping costs vary, as do overall costs for the WaterBlob (depending on options selected), so contact Superyacht Tenders & Toys for pricing.
In the meantime, here’s some fun footage of just how high you can be launched from a WaterBlob.
