This is the most fun-looking thing I’ve seen all summer, but has one of the world’s worst soundtracks. Please turn your volume down before checking this out:
That’s the Tarzan Boat, a “mobile floating water park” used by Navy SEALs for training. Okay, not really. It’s a recreational platform aimed at “resorts, marinas, camps, hotels and private dock owners,” and the manufacturers are calling it a moneymaker—not just for them, but for the buyer. They reckon the attraction will bring in “$3,000 to $5,000 a day,” and they aim to help you monetize yours:
This isn't just a boat, it's a business ...and we want you to be very successful because it is our report card to the world. We don't charge franchise fees or any payments after your purchase, so our reputation is based on your success and we are going to be diligent to make sure you are a hit.
Remember, that Tarzan Boat is designed for commercial use, projected to gross $3,000-$5,000 a day. We show you the operation of handling customers, payment, location, traffic flow, training your staff, free marketing methods and keeping your overhead very low.
The turn-key “Business Package” runs a cool $63,700, while those looking to buy one for personal use can knock five grand off of the price.
I say go for the monetization. Furthermore, going back to my earlier thought: I suggest you set one of these up near the Naval Special Warfare Groups base outside of Virginia Beach, post advertisements everywhere claiming you use the Tarzan Boat to train SEALs, and see what happens.
