FunAir Loungers beach set up

Unforgettable Beach Days with FunAir at Monaco Yacht Show

In addition to the adrenaline pumping FunAir Yacht Slides, Climbing Walls and other superyacht toys built for action and adventure, FunAir also know exactly how to relax….. In partnership with the beach days theme at the official Captains and Crew Lounge at Monaco Yacht Show this year, FunAir will be launching three new to market products, perfect for an unforgettable superyacht beach experience.

Outside the Lounge on Quay Louis II visitors will be able to find the new Twin Escape floating on the water. Two detachable beach loungers sit on a stable platform that can float out in the shallows to enhance any beach excursion. The Twin Escape is 3.5m x 3m when deployed and comes with their patented Sea Stairs that help you elegantly step right out of the water and onto the relaxing Escape. Perfect for sunbathing, enjoying time with friends, or perhaps a private chat with drinks out on the ocean.

FunAir Twin Escape

If you like to feel the sand between your toes then you can detach the loungers for beach use and pair them with the second new MYS products launch; the Wave Lounger. FunAir have redesigned their superyacht beach lounger and created a unique, ergonomic flow that is stylish, eye-catching and comfortable. The inflatable Wave Loungers take just a couple of minutes to inflate and deflate, and allow crew to pack multiple loungers on even the smallest tender, making beach set up for larger groups quick and easy. The Wave Loungers can be colour customised and have optional luxury fitted covers available through a FunAir partner. They weigh just 10kg and are around 2.2m long and 85cm wide.

FunAir Wave Loungers

For the starfish amongst you the third product launching at MYS gives you even more space to sit back and beach out. The FunAir Daybed is a double width inflatable beach lounger that can accommodate couples in love, a hoard of kids or give those who like to sunbathe in style all the space they need to stretch out and starfish.

FunAir Inflatable Loungers beach set up

The day bed is an easy to lift 17kg and is 230cm long and 158cm wide. Also available in custom colours and with luxury fitted covers. The Wave loungers and Daybed will be on display outside the Captain and Crew Lounge during Monaco Yacht Show on the dock next to the on-water Twin Escape.

Visitors to the show are invited to come and try out the beach set up for themselves and to experience what total beach comfort really feels like. Captains and crew can also chill out on two loungers stationed upstairs in the private crew lounge where they will be complimenting the interior beach themed space.

FunAir Yacht Joust

FunAir Yacht Joust – Be the Next Superyacht Gladiator Champion

Playing gladiator on FunAir Yacht Joust is simple – two competitors stand on top of a considerably stable platform that has a central beam suspended one metre above the sea/pool. They then take their joust poles and attempt to knock each other over in a battle to the splash!

Whether it’s fitness or fun you’re looking for you can find them both with FunAir Yacht Joust. Crew and charter guests can fight one on one battles or even team up and have a knock-out competition. Yacht Joust is engineered for all ages so it’s perfect for the whole family to try. Even better news – Yacht Joust is part of FunAir’s QuickShip range so it can be with you within a few days.

Glatiator Fighting FunAir Yacht Joust

There’ plenty of space on the 350cm x 50cm balance beam for adults and children to claim their territory and get their opponent into the water. Another great asset is that you can joust anywhere, you can tether the Yacht Joust to a location as it’s a free floating inflatable.

From small coves to the middle of the ocean you can secure the Yacht Joust anywhere for hours of fun. You could even set up the inflatable from the beach and attract a larger audience for your gladiator showdown.

It’s a short 30 minutes to set up the Yacht Joust, it’s an easy job for any crew and won’t take up a lot of their time. Taking the Joust down is even easier than setting it up and a great bonus – it folds up neatly to a much smaller size. You’ll always have space to fit this little yacht toy no matter the size of your vessel so there’s no need to miss out on the fun times if you have limited space or a smaller yacht.

Dave on his Schiller Water Bike Endurance ride along superyacht route in Norway

Schiller Water Bike Endurance Challenge on Norway Superyacht Route

One Man and his Schiller Water Bike Complete a Record Breaking Journey Along the Norwegian Superyacht Route

Bike A Blue Planet

Endurance adventurer Dave Cornthwaite pedalled an astounding 1243 miles/2090 kilometres along the Norwegian coast, following popular superyacht and famous Hurtigruten ferry route, from Kirkenes to Bergen on his Schiller Water Bike.

His journey lasted for nine weeks, reaching its conclusion in October, and is a record-breaking distance travelled by water bike.

Describing his favourite destinations on this preferred superyacht route, Dave says, “The entire Norwegian coast is beautiful in its own right and the scenery changes every 200 miles or so as I headed south. The rugged, empty northern coast of Finnmark was the most remote part of the trip but I loved the coast of Steigen, which is peppered by an archipelago of thousands of islands, most with sandy white beaches and quiet coves.”

One of many reasons why Norway is becoming an increasingly popular charter destination, with many luxury yacht berths available, and an abundance of outdoor activities on offer amidst the unbeatable scenery.

Dave kitted out his water bike with a custom Schiller inflatable platform, easily strapped to the pontoons at four points, to accommodate the gear he needed to carry with him on his journey.

A Schiller Water Bike can bear weight of up to 900lbs, so there was ample scope for heavier items to be loaded. A handlebar extender was also added to enable Dave to sit upright whilst pedaling the long daily distances, rather than taking the standard ‘racing’ position which is great for your everyday water bike ride.

Averaging an estimated speed of 3.8mph, Dave spent 7-9 hours on the water every day taking in the breathtaking landscapes of Norway and summed up his journey with the following.

Hours on the water: 376.7
Top speed: 10.7mph.
Average speed: 3.5mph (5.6kmph)
Whales seen: 13
Dolphins pedaled with: Over 400
Seals: 250ish
Puffins seen: More than people
Times a Hurtigruten ship travelled between Kirkenes and Bergen while I was pedaling like mad: 13
Films made: 67
No. of times people called me crazy: 654
No. of times people asked if I had bad weather: 786
No. of times I swore I’d never sit on a bicycle seat again: 987
World records? One – longest journey by water bike!
Size of my smile: infinite

This epic journey is number 14 of 25 that Dave will be completing as part of his project ‘Expedition1000’. A different form of non-motorised transport will be used for each adventure, and every one will cover a minimum distance of 1000 miles. Past expeditions have included skateboards, SUP’s and scooters.

Talking of adventure number 15 Dave tells us “I don’t yet have a plan for my next endurance adventure, but am currently resting up and considering creating a film/ book about the Norway trip, and I have a fairly busy speaking schedule around Europe to tell the tale of this journey.

“I live on a boat in London and my Schiller Bike is currently moored alongside, and I take it out for a spin most days. It’s a great way to go shopping and is a regular head-turner for anyone living by the river!”

Dave is victorious in Bergen at the end of his Schiller Water Bike Challenge

As the superyacht industry takes a stop towards sustainability it seems that the Norwegian community are rising to the challenge. It was reported in an article on www.inhabitat.com that Norwegian billionaire Kjell Inge Røkke, a businessman who started his career as a fisherman, has commissioned a yacht purely for marine research. The vessel will be able to scoop up around five tons of plastic every day, and then melt it down in an effort to help clean up the ocean.

The 180m Research Expedition Vessel (REV) will be built by VARD, designed by superyacht designer Espen Oeino and will be ready in 2020. Scientists and marine researchers will be invited on board to study and explore issues such as climate change, overfishing and plastic pollution, according to owner Rosellinis Four-10, a subsidiary of the Røkke family company TRG.

The eco-friendly Schiller Water Bike was developed with the daring belief that people should be able to bike across a blue planet. Designed with state-of-the-art engineering, the Schiller S1-C and S1 are simultaneously revolutionising yachting, water sports and cycling industries, enabling millions of people around the world to have an exhilarating, dynamic and safe biking experience on the water.

This is the next frontier in biking and water sports. One that has no learning curve (or paddles or uncomfortable seating in kayak hulls), and is accessible to all for fun, fitness, touring and adventure on almost any body of water.

With nearly one billion bikes around the globe built for land, Schiller is singularly focused on delivering its customers epic rides, trailblazing voyages and incredible sunset spins on a new aquatic terrain.

Gulf Craft and FunAir are pleased to announce during METSTRADE 2017, the largest marine equipment trade show worldwide (Nov 14-16), that a partnership agreement has been made for Gulf Craft to be an official FunAir distributor in the Middle East territories.

Gulf Craft, the world’s innovative builder of luxury yachts and leisure boats, has served the aspirations of passionate seafarers for more than three decades. The award-winning manufacturer is one of the world’s leading superyacht shipyards, a merit it has achieved through continuous investment in research and development.

FunAir launch a new concept in inflatable yachting fun each year, with the latest redesigned Playground and Junior BigAir Blob showcased for the first time on the water at Monaco Yacht show in September. The two innovative companies took the opportunity during the show to finalise their agreement that has been under discussion over the summer months, and have officially announced the partnership today at the start of METS.

FunAir inflatables will be offered as an option on all Gulf Craft new build projects, and superyacht enthusiasts can view the synergy between these leading brands at the Dubai International Boat Show in 2018 when they will exhibit together.

FunAir Yacht Slide and Ramp

John Courtney, Managing Director of Yachting at FunAir commented, “It has been a pleasure working on this partnership with Erwin Bamps and his team.

Gulf Craft are an exceptional superyacht manufacturer and we look forward to inflating the Fun on board their yachts with the full FunAir portfolio.”

Erwin Bamps, CEO Gulf Craft, added, “Superyacht lifestyle is all about the customer’s overall experience. Surrounding ourselves with reliable partners that assist in building a holistic yachting experience is crucial to us. We are very pleased with our FunAir partnership, and believe it helps both of our companies to redefine yachting every day.”

FunAir joins the United States Superyacht Association with premier space in new area of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

FunAir have recently joined the USSA and have the premier space in the new American section of the Superyacht Pavilion. American born FunAir can be found at the entrance to the new American section and opposite the USSA Lounge at booth 801.

The leading superyacht inflatables manufacturer will be showcasing a new lounger design, the popular Climbing Wall and in partnership with Oceanemo, the Sports Utility Yacht, a range of 3D printed replica FunAir products on a mesmerising digital display table.

Having recently launched the all new FunAir Playground and Junior BigAir Blob, FunAir will be meeting with Owners and Captains at FLIBS to get feedback on new products and discuss the next big launch in inflatable yacht toys.

A redesign of a firm family favourite, the FunAir Playground has a slide, climbing frame and leaving off point for a smaller version of the very popular BigAir Blob, which like its big brother has stabilising outriggers that stop it turning in the ocean, and an inflatable stand-off that keeps it in place. Friends and siblings can jump from the playground straight onto the blob and launch their partners into the air.

The Playground can be tethered to the yacht out at anchor, and also works as the perfect accessory for families when it is secured in shallower waters on beach days.

Standing 3.5m tall when inflated, the playground has non-slip material on the steps, comfort grip climbing holds and ultra slick vinyl. This eliminates the need for a coversheet and reduces weight and pack size. The Junior Big Air Blob is also made from commercial grade 1000 denier PVC with FR and UV ratings. Total set up time is just 30 minutes.

Total set up time is just 30 minutes.

John Courtney, MD of Yachting commented, “Part of the reason we work hard on developing our innovation partnerships is to make sure we get regular feedback on our existing products, what the owners, guests and crew would like to see in the future, what affects the use of our products and where we can improve everyone’s yachting experience.

“The Playground was developed because of our partnership with Titan Fleet who needed a durable playground that was robust and could be used by kids large and small. We redesigned it to make it lighter, taller and more stable. Combining the Playground with our Junior BigAir Blob gave Titan Fleet the perfect activity centre for their fleet of charter yachts.”

The redesigned FunAir Playground with Junior BigAir Blob will be on the water, displayed outside the official MYS Captains and Crew Lounge next to the Yacht Club throughout Monaco Yacht Show 2017.
