Why stop at a yacht?  We ask ourselves that every day, and then we quickly remember we have yet to buy one.  And by yet to buy one, we mean to say “afford one.”  Seriously, though, if you’ve got all the money in the world, which you presumably do if you own your own yacht, then you should be required by maritime law to own one of these, a Freestyle Cruiser Waterslide.

Each waterslide is custom made to your yacht’s specifications.  As the company behind the indispensably fun toy puts it, “there is no off the shelf slide.”  They do however have two template slides: the LS for boats with a height of more than 5 meters, and the NLS for boats under 5 meters high. Alternatively, you can buy a slide from complete scratch, especially if your yacht isn’t of the traditional ilk – oh the quandary.  While we don’t know cost, we do know that the smaller of the two weighs in at about 250lbs, with a minimum erection time of 20 minutes.  So suffice to say you’ll need your crew on hand to help with the setup.
