Looking back I have been to rather a lot of boat shows and events for someone who doesn’t know how to swim and doesn’t own a boat. But if I did know how to swim and I did own a boat I would probably be typing this while sat on one of these crazy boats…
Top 10 Weird and Unusual Shaped Boats
10 – Skip
Sadly this image doesn’t do this boat justice, but it really was a refuse skip that was turned into a boat! The perfect shape I suppose, just so long as it is not full of rubbish.
9 – Picnic Table
The problem with picnic tables is they are often placed far away from the lakes and waters edge, this picnic table doesn’t have any such problems.
8 – Caravan
For those people who can’t decided between a boating holiday and a caravan holiday comes the best of both worlds. The Caraboat.
7 – Swan
This amazing pleasure tour boat is located in Fujiyoshida river and gives cruises by the hour! This just instantly went onto my bucket list.
6 – Character
Paint a face on the main chimney of the boat and you have a silly faced boat, but make a big red cap for it out of steal and suddenly you have something from the world of Thomas The Tank and Friends!
5 – Duck
You are not going quackers, this really is a boat shaped like a duck! If that wasn’t weird enough it has heart shaped windows for some reason. I wonder how much this cost because it must have been a big bill! (badum tish!)
4 – Clog
In theory you wouldn’t have to do much to a clog to make is seaworthy given that they are made from wood anyway. Just made one big enough to sit in!
3 – Hot Dog
It would have made for a much better story if the owl and the pussycat went to sea in a beautiful hot dog speed boat! I can only hope it is powered by ketchup.
2 – Shoe
I wonder if this boat smells like a boating shoe?!? No matter how it smells it will still be a pain to do up those laces to secure it to the dock. Double knots will be essential!
1 – Guitar Shaped Boat
You know you are too rock and roll when you cruise around the local lakes on this guitar shaped boat. Given that guitars are made from wood I suppose it is a better choice of instrument than a tuba!
