These Life-Sized Inflatable Speed Boats Are Winning The Pool Float Game

It's officially summer and we all needed to get our beach gear in-hand and Instagrammed yesterday.

When I was little, summer vacation was about lemonade and sunscreen and burying my little brother in wet sand until he cried. Nowadays, summer is the ultimate photo shoot competition and pool party championship.

I don't know about you, but the prospect of going to the beach legitimately stresses me out now. What do I wear? Who's going to film my Snapchat story for me? How can I combine relaxation and boujieness to ensure that my frying skin at no point touches water???

Since summertime is all about doing it for the 'gram, it's important to make sure you have everything you need to impress people.

For instance, these snazzy bathing suits will let you turn into the summer drink of your choice. Feeling like it's time to properly express your love for Capri Sun juice pouches? Just slip into your new one-piece and you're ready to give the people at the beach and on your Instagram a look they'll remember.

Don't worry fellas, there are statement-worthy bathing suits out there for you, too.


While I'm not entirely sure what kind of a statement you'll be making in these denim speedos, at least you'll have something worthy of posting to Instagram. Let's just see what your followers have to say about your new summer must-have.

Even pool floats are getting out of control.

Just when I think inflatable water toys can't get any more EXTRA, they do. Gone are the days of the simple donut dingy—we are in the era of such revolutionary pool must-haves like eggplant floats and boyfriend floats. If you like something, you can float on the water in it.

Some pool floats are way more extra than they really need to be.


Take this one, for instance. It looks like this guy is getting ready to play some sort of video game from the comfort of his own inflatable pool chair, but in fact that floaty has a motor in it. So really, he's getting ready to do some laps around his pool in style.

This one lets you take your love of avocados and put it to good use.


While other people will be trying to show off their avocado obsession through Instagram posts of avocado toast, you'll be floating in the water on your very own giant avocado, complete with a removable pit that works perfectly as a beach ball.

Maybe you're not the one in need of floating, but your delicious pool party spread is.


In that case, you definitely need to invest in one of these light up inflatable coolers because no party is truly complete without one.

Now you can keep your shrimp ring chilled and your guests entertained with this floating party buffet.

Let's face it, most of us are lucky if we even own a car nowadays, so owning a speedboat is a bit out of our reach.

The economy isn't really doing young people any favors right now, and a speedboat is way too much of an investment for our skinny little wallets. But why invest so much money you don't have into an expensive boat when you can just inflate one yourself?

The newest product in pool float innovation really takes the cake.


Amazon is selling a life-sized inflatable speed boat that can hold six people plus an abundance of cold drinks.

The Inflatable Bay Breeze Boat Party Island has two front seats and an inflatable back bench that circles the entire boat. There is a ton of room in this thing.

There are eight cup holders and a large resealable cooler on board.


"Whether you want to ride, play, or lounge, this mega-sized float is right for you," the product description reads, "It’s large enough for the whole family–kids and adults will enjoy fun in the sun together. The float includes an inflated rear swim platform with five handles for easy mounting and dismounting, eight cup holders and a built-in cooler."

"You can use it on land or water, as poolside furniture, on your patio or deck–any location."


The boat is around $200 USD which is waaaay cheaper than an actual speed boat.

"The simple to use safety valve makes inflating and deflating fast and easy, allowing you to inflate to your desired comfort level," the instructions read, "Add more air for more firmness, less air for more softness."

I think we've found the pool float champion.


Float with your friends in superb style with the Inflatable Bay Breeze Boat Party Island.**
