This Inflatable Boat Will Let You Carry Your Car Across Water

Ever wished you could skip long bridge lines and avoid steep tolls? A Slovenia-based company called Hovercraft feels your pain. They developed the Ferryboat—an inflatable ferry that’s sturdy enough to carry vehicles up to 11,000 pounds across a body of water.

Simply inflate the Ferryboat with an electric pump, and five minutes later you’ll find yourself the captain of your own watercraft. Just make sure you have a large car on hand to transport it when it's deflated, as the larger models of Ferryboat weigh more than 660 pounds. The boats do, however, come in a variety of sizes, and can be folded up and stored in a trunk.

Sadly, you won’t be able to give the Ferryboat to the traveler who has everything this holiday season. The first models won’t be available until sometime next year—giving you plenty of time to save up the necessary $6800 to $10,600 to buy one.
