On a trip back from Catalina about three years ago, my girfriend asked the same question.......why can't we have a soak in some warm water. This was the birth of TugTub, the first fully portable floating hot tub. We are headed to Catalina on Saturday for a weekend of floating and soaking..........soaking in 104 degree water next to your boat is an unforgetable experience. You can see the hottub at tugtub.com.

Ok so far we have the new Hunter 50cc, Anacapa 42, Irwins 42 and up, Bayfield 36, Hunter 450, and some wise guy with the center cockpit full of water and bikinis.

Keep them coming please.

Some friends on an Irwin 52 have a pretty nice real bath tub. Our St. Francis 44 cat has not just one, but two!

Having said that, I wouldn't really call them "tubs", since an adult couldn't actually sit in one and get their legs stretched out. Sitz bath, yes; soaking tub, no. However, even that was a big plus for the Admiral. As for me, I couldn't care less, though they are convenient for rinsing out clothes, dive gear, etc.

Being serious, where the heck are you going to get the gallons of water to fill a tub twice, once for wash and once for rinse. If you intend to be permanently tied to a marina with a water pipe attached to the boat, that amount of water wastage is ludicrous. (My favorite line in the movie "Space Balls" was "give me Ludicrous speed").
- - If you want a bathtub, buy an apartment/condo/house. Last time I looked land dwellers used 100 to 500 gallons of water per person per day. Cruising sailors (even power yachts) try to keep it down with 5 to 10 gallons a day being extravagant and 3 to 5 gallons for a couple being average on average size cruising yachts.

The floating tubs use salt water or fresh water. When we are away from land we fill it with salt water.........it takes about a gallon of LP gas to get the water from 60 degrees to 100. A bilge pump that draws 40 watts is used to circulate the water. This works for us when we are out at the islands off LA. On Saturday afternoon the water temp was 57 degrees, and we were floating and soaking in 104 degrees..........

Kinda not really serious, but you seem real serious, but not ludicrous!
I for one have never filled the tub twice for one bath. Am I missing out on something here?

On boats I've looked at that have "tubs" I just don't fall it. I know it looks like a tub, but its a boat trick sizing thing. have 2 tubs in my condo, neither of which I can soak in. So while the boat tbs on 40-45 boats "look" good I thinkit just a place towash your clothes in.

PS - Older Morgan 461/462s have tubs.
