The best stand-up paddleboards to keep on board

Your tender garage may already be full of the best toys for your superyacht but, if you’re heading to a toy-friendly destination or hope to make your yacht one of the best for charter with exciting water toys, you’re going to need some stand-up paddleboards (SUPs). Easy to store and even easier to master, they’re perfect for a family-friendly yacht charter or guests who aren’t comfortable on Jet Skis and wakeboards. Here’s our pick of the best to buy now.

Surftech Saber 2017

New to paddleboarding or just looking for a great all round board that your guests can use? Surftech’s touring Saber board is ideal.

SIC F14.0 Planing Hull SUP

If you’re looking to take your boarding up a gear but aren’t ready for the level of skill needed to master a racing displacement hull, an SUP with a planing hull is a great middle ground. With a wider mid-point and tail than most 14’ racing boards, SIC’s F14.0 paddleboard offers greater stability without sacrificing on performance while its extra length makes it ideal for larger boarders and downwinding.
