VIDEO: Entrepreneur launches hot-tub pontoon boat business

Posted on

San Diego is known for its great weather and laid-back attitude. Now a local entrepreneur is tapping into that with a new business venture: Hot Tub Cruisin.

“It’s a hot tub on a boat,” founder Taylor Rhodes told ABC 10 News.

The eight-person hot tub is mounted on the deck of a pontoon boat that rents for $215 an hour. Taylor and his brothers say the business was two years in development, including approval from the Coast Guard and local marine authorities.

The boat can be driven by anyone 18 years or older with a valid driver’s license.

The pontoon is equipped with a cooler, a Bluetooth-compatible stereo system and the required safety gear, including Coast Guard-approved life jackets, fire extinguishers and an air horn.

The company also has another boat in case of emergencies away from the dock.

The boat does not cruise faster than no-wake speeds, and although alcohol is allowed on board, moderation is the tone set by the staff. There is no head.
