Floating your boat: Introducing the Nautibuoy

Nautibuoy platforms offer a fresh element to yachting holidays

Superyachts are undeniably some of the most impressive examples of engineering and design known to man.

But there is always room for improvement and innovation, as proved by Nina Anderson, who, having worked as a chief stewardess on yachts for many seasons, came up with Nautibuoy. 

The concept is actually very simple: inflatable platforms that allow guests to sunbath and relax on the water. Whether attached to the back of the yacht, or floated in island-like seclusion, these platforms add a new perspective to your yachting experience by taking the comforts of the yacht even closer to the shore.

Available in four sizes, the largest (4m x 2m) takes just three and a half minutes to fully inflate, and can support five people. The platforms offer more than just leisure, but also practicality for boat maintenance and, uniquely, jet-ski docking, a concept thought up by Nina’s business partner, Clay Builder.

Clay spent hours repairing jet skis and damage caused to transoms during his 11-year career on motoryachts, and came up with the idea of linking these platforms in such a way that it made for safe docking for jet-skis.

Simple ideas, but ideal for guests who like to be in and out of the water regularly.
