This is the world's first barbecue boat – perfect for families and friends who want to grill up a feast on water.
The red-hot US invention can seat up to 10 adults in a circle around a sizzling meal of burgers and sausages, and can can cruise up-river at 2.5mph.
But the revolutionary dining experience comes at a price, and will set would-be water chefs back 32,000.
The boat that rocks: Cruisers and fishermen alike can enjoy the barbecue craft, which can seat up to ten around its charcoal grill
Lap of luxury: The dinghy comes with plate and drinks holders, a tray for silverware and under-seat storage space for extra buns and salad
The Hammacher Schlemmer product
claims to be the last word in luxury, with each place setting boasting a
recessed plate holder, three drinks holders, and a silverware tray.
Six compartments beneath the seats store food and supplies for all-day barbecues on lake, river or just a local pond.
The 24in-diameter steel charcoal grill has a lid and the seats and tables are made from a resilient thermoplastic.
The vibrant polyethylene craft comes with a 3.4m-wide umbrella to keep off the sun – or more probably, the rain.
Burgers and bikinis: Revellers can meander along the river at 2.5mph for an all-day cruise of up to eight hours
Making a splash: The charcoal grill can be removed and the giant umbrella folded back if it's a sunny day
The covering can retract when the weather is fine, ensuring passengers do not get overheated while lunch is on the go.
It docks at special bays, and comes with four rechargeable batteries, allowing for a relaxed eight-hour cruise after a ten-hour charge.
Fishing fans will love the 30-watt electric trolling motor, which is quiet enough to allow you to sneak up on your catch, before throwing it straight on the grill for lunch.
So no matter what the weather, get out on the water for the ultimate in summer berbecues – just don't let your meat get wet.
