Recreational Island a yacht accessory

Here is a brilliant concept by Henry Ward of a collapsible floating platform that transforms into a free floating Recreational Island

It is easily stored in the yacht’s garage and quickly deployed using two standard overhead cranes. Once in the water it could hang by the yacht, or towed into shallow water using a second tender. A pressurized hydraulic system opens the Island out, complete with all the fittings.

Once open four anchors hold the 10m X 8m platform in place, and you and your guest get to use this flexible space for recreation, dinning, and relaxation the whole day. The designer partnered up with N.A BMT Nigel Gee an industry leader with over 150 proven vessels with yachts up to 165 meter in length. So rest assure this island doesn’t only look good … it floats!

Alternative Uses

Currently they are investigating an option to configure the island for use as a portable helicopter landing platform. This option will be an excellent solution for yachts who want landing capabilities but don’t necessary want to sacrifice deck space for it.
