Lift eFoil

There are some basics it is taken for granted every superyacht toy box will play host to: a great Jet Ski or two, a few surfboards and, of course, some water toys for the children. However, if you want your garage to be truly up-to-date heading into the New Year then there a few new launches from 2017 you shouldn't be without. Click through to tick off our list of the best new toys that came to our attention this year...

Lift eFoil

Electric surfboards are nothing new, but throw foiling technology into the mix and this futuristic water toy is suddenly taken to the next level. The Lift eFoil is sure to turn heads across the world when the first units are shipped out in September. Nine years in development, this all-carbon board is the brainchild of company co-founder, engineer and all-round watersports enthusiast Nick Leason.

The easily replaceable lithium battery can deliver up to 60 minutes of on-water fun at speeds of up to 21 knots. A choice of interchangeable foils allows for a wide range of flying sensations and when the battery starts to run low, the eFoil will switch to an economy mode to help you get safely back to shore. The hand-held throttle controller displays speed and battery levels and the unit is wirelessly linked to the silent electric motor via Bluetooth. What’s more, the eFoil will cut out automatically if the controller is more than three metres away from the board or submerged in water, thus eliminating the risk of a runaway surfboard causing havoc. Available in a choice of lengths (1.67 metres or 1.52 metres) and colours (black, blue, green or purple), the eFoil is priced at $12,000 and the first limited edition units can be secured for a refundable deposit of $6,000 – a small price to pay to see jaws dropping wherever you surf.
