It‘s a BBQ! It’s a Picnic Table! It’s a Boat! It’s The BBQ Donut!


Sometimes, the biggest problem we encounter with enjoying a day on the lake is our proximity to decent brisket. Sure, you could try to cook some sausages on your Factory Pipe or even smoke some chicken if you’ve got a worn out 2-stroke, but trying to score some quality BBQ out on the water is all but impossible. That is, until today!

Introducing the BBQ Donut Boat. Although not a jet-powered PWC or even a boat, every now and again, we find something so awesomely absurd that we have to share it no matter its propulsion system. Powered by an outboard motor, the BBQ Donut Boats feature a solid round pontoon (not an inflated raft) that can seat up to eight, and are available with either a charcoal grill or a cooler, a picnic table, and an umbrella with lights underneath for nighttime rides.

Now, don’t expect to enter any closed course races, as the BBQ Donut maxes out around 5-7MPH depending on sea state, wind and the number of people aboard. Originally built by a German boat builder, the idea has taken off around Florida, where partygoers can rent the BBQ Donut for the day out on the river.

We see these gaining some traction around waterfront resorts and can’t imagine a handful floating behind Kokomo’s at the World Finals. Until then, see the BBQ Donut Boat in action HERE:
