FunAir-BigAir-Blob

Due to go on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2016, FunAir's latest release is an old favourite reworked specially for superyachts. The BigAir Blob is a classic water cushion which has been redesigned for use in tidal waters with stabilising outriggers to stop it turning over while an inflatable stand-off means users are never at risk of accidentally bumping into the yacht's hull making it perfectly safe for younger thrill seekers. So how does it work? Sit at the end of the cushion while your friends jump on to it from the top deck sending you flying metres into the air before dropping into the ocean below.

Red Paddle Co Inflatable Paddleboard

If your superyacht toy box doesn't contain paddleboards then it's about time you invested as these are fast becoming essential for the best luxury yachts for charter with exciting water toys. Paddleboarding is particularly great for children because it's relatively easy to master, doesn't require waves or motors and tends to be safer than other water sports.

Unfortunately the rigid versions also tend to be quite large so, if you're planning to invest in enough for all the family, Red Paddle Co's inflatable SUPs are a great solution. Each one can be packed away in their own backpack and take just 20 minutes to inflate. Along with a huge range of adult boards, Red Paddle Co offers both standard and racing boards in junior sizes perfect for children.

Seabob

If your child loves to explore but isn’t the strongest swimmer, investing in a Seabob could be a simple solution. These lightweight machines pull the user through the water at a comfortable speed and are steered by applying light pressure in the desired direction, meaning long distances can be covered above and below water using minimal energy. Eco-friendly and almost completely silent, it is a brilliant alternative to traditional snorkelling and, should you wish to have a go yourself, it can dive to depths of up to 40 metres.
