The HydroView Sport ROV is a fun and useful remote controlled underwater vehicle that records live video and captures still photos in high definition. With Aquabotix’s innovative iPad or laptop applications, anyone can “fly” the HydroView through the water viewing the live video feed from the safety and comfort of deck, dock or shore. HydroView is considered the world’s most easily operated ROV. The vehicle’s propulsion, navigation and depth are controlled using the motion control feature (accelerometer) and on-screen controls of your iPad, a video game controller or the keyboard controls of your laptop. No formal training is necessary. Watch the HD video feed to inspect your vessel and explore what lies beneath, record the video to share with others or document findings and capture still images along the way.

Dual Stand Up Paddleboards
Paddle boarding has recently taken the water sport world by storm since it’s the perfect on-water activity for both beginners and those who know how to ride a wave. These water toys are ideal for bringing along on your yacht as well since they can be compactly stored yet ready for your use at a moment’s notice. While paddle boarding is a lot of fun, it’s even more enjoyable when you are doing it as a pair, so why not buy two boards at once? Cruiser Stand Up Paddleboards is offering an excellent package for two 2016 Kona Ultra-Lite Wood SUPs. They are very stable, user friendly and provide great performance. Both boards come with a premium deck pad, three Fins, deck bungee and a one year warranty.
