The Ultimate Land Yacht Castagna recently debuted the Tender for land cruising: an open-air cabriolet with a 30-liter freshwater tank with shower and a 2000W Clarion audio system and extra spotlights (for beach parties). The striped soft top is by Missoni, while the interior has neoprene-covered seats to stand up to sun and saltwater. Lifting rings at each corner make it easy to sling the car aboard. You have to buy the Mini Cooper (starting at $17,450) first, and then figure about $25,000 for the custom conversion. www.castagnamilano.com

A Scooter for the Seas Sort of like the character Q in James Bond films, Sir Clive Sinclair is an iconic Brit who has invented everything from the pocket calculator to electric bikes. One of his more recent creations is the Sea-Doo Seascooter, which putt-putts along at 2 mph and can operate at depths up to 65 feet, making it a great option for snorkeling or shallow dives. The 12V battery lasts an hour and the entire thing folds into a package the size of a gym bag. Price: $299.95. www.seascooter.net

Choppers with Chops Helicopters are to superyachts what limos are to mansions: These days, most have one. Some even two. But which one to buy? The standard remains the EC 120 from Eurocopter, a smart little five-seater that weighs under 4,000 pounds and has a cruising speed of 100 to 122 knots; it can go nearly 400 miles without refueling. Price starts at $1.5 million. www.eurocopterusa.com

But, as the spec sheet states: No aerobatics allowed. www.flyinginflatableboats.com

New for 2006 is the two-seater Triton 1000, starting at a mere $1.24 million. www.ussubs.com
