Rent a Floating Hot Tub: Down by the River

Rub-a-dub-dub, indeed. Can you imagine floating down the Thames in a hot tub? Or cruising out of the port of Rotterdam – or north of Amsterdam in the charming town of IJlst? The world is your oyster when you “Hot Tug”, as these clever floating hot tubs are called.


The Hot Tug (brainchild of Dutch designer Frank de Bruijn) has a wood-fired heater, and the underwater stove heats the water to a toasty 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius). There is no fear of fire breaking out- the stainless exterior of the stove is cool to the touch – cooled by the water it heats! You can float down the river in the winter, with a cold drink in your hand and enjoy the warmth! The Hot Tug contains 1800 liters of water – just over 475 gallons (which is typical for a stationary hot tub this size). A 2.4 KW electric motor provides the power and you’re off on your adventure. Full steam ahead – and don’t forget the champagne!

Be sure to wear your best bathing suit – because you’ll turn a lot of heads as you glide across the water.
