Ah, summertime. The season of warm weather, vacations, barbecues and over-the-top recreational water products that cost thousands of dollars. We're glad to see that Hammacher Schlemmer didn't disappoint us in this category with the latest example of aquatic excess, the "Motorized Four-Person Lounger Boat" (catchy name).
This little watercraft may seem simple enough by appearances, but don't be fooled. Its features include a five-speed electric motor with three reverse speeds, a sealed compartment for two 12-volt batteries and an "ergonomic reclining mesh seat." How else can it justify its $4,000 price tag? OK, maybe not.
