Better than having a BBQ party with friends, is to have a BBQ party with friends on a boat. The Barbecue Dining Boat combines both. It features a built-in barbecue grill, an umbrella, and trolling motor.

The nylon umbrella can be retracted when using the grill. Its 30-watt electric trolling motor enables operators to maneuver up to 2 1/2 mph through calm water and alongside docks for loading/unloading. The motor's four rechargeable batteries provide up to eight hours of continuous use from a 10-hour charge.

The Barbecue Dining Boat ready to eat

The boat's 24'-diam. steel charcoal grill is surrounded by an ABS table with 10 place settings that each have a recessed plate holder, three beverage holders, and silverware tray. Six compartments beneath the ABS seats store food and supplies for all-day cookouts.

Yes, for a price of $50.000 you could buy a respectable sized boat, and put a BBQ on it, but what if you already have that? The Barbecue Dining Boat is a funny design idea and a special BBQ experience. Available at Hammacher Schlemmer.
