Perfect for pools, small lakes or ponds with very calm water, this adorable inflatable blue and white boat is about 60 inches long and travels up to 2 miles per hour. It is equipped with a child-friendly outboard electric motor. Easily controlled, the child just sits on the hull and controls the motor with a finger trigger that can quickly turn the motor on or off with the simple pull of the trigger. The motor can turn a complete 360 degrees which means you can even go backwards or around and around in circles. The propeller is totally covered so no sharp blades are exposed. The hull is made out of thick PVC which is 3 mm thick.  When the season is over, just deflate it and store. The boat deflates to 25 x 14 x 8.

The HydroMax Motorized Inflatable Speed Boat requires 8 D batteries, good for up to 5 fun hours of boating pleasure.  Some assembly is required.  Recommended for children 5 and over, this super fun boat can fit two children up to 100 pounds at the same time. This must-have product comes with a lifetime guarantee and retails for under $100. Of course it goes without saying; the boat should only be used with adult supervision.

But fair warning: your children will be the envy of the neighborhood so be prepared for an influx of kids!   I want one, don't you? Too bad it won't fit in my bathtub!
