For many yacht owners and charterers getting out on the open ocean is what sets a yachting vacation apart from any other holiday. But if your Jet Ski skills aren't up to scratch and scuba diving isn't your thing, your choices can sometimes be a little limited. Thankfully there are a whole host of brands offering family-friendly, thrill-seeking fun on a range of compact inflatable towables that everyone can enjoy - here's our pick of the best...

The beach resort staple is a sure-fire hit for kids – fit up to five on board for guaranteed fun.

For one to three riders, the Mable can be towed from either end and serves as either a comfy chair or wild chariot ride.
