Forget the standup paddleboards, the Seabobs, even the 75-mph Jet Skis and Wave Runners. There’s a new must-have toy in town — the Flyboard — and the 146-foot motoryacht Berzinc is among the first to offer it to charter guests.
It takes less than a half-hour to learn how to use the Flyboard, and Berzinc has an instructor onboard ready to show guests how to launch themselves more than 30 feet into the air. The Flyboard works by attaching to a personal watercraft and putting its propulsion power under your feet, which are booted into a board that’s kind of like a wakeboard. Check out this video to see the Flyboard in action: http://bit.ly/LQdZW3.
If you’re willing to invest a few hours in training, you should be able to do serious tricks and maneuvers, according to the Flyboard’s U.S. distributor. The instructor sits on the PWC and is with you the whole time you’re in the air.
Training and use of the Flyboard will be included in the weekly base rate for charters aboard Berzinc, which is available this winter in the Caribbean through Ocean Independence at $97,500.
