Me and the missus did part of our honeymoon in something like this. Zapped GPS to our retrieval chopper to get plucked up out the Sea of Cortez and dropped in the mountains for the snow phase. For that, you want to get one with windows and climate control, and definitely rig a curtain for the “convenience hatch” area. Ours was a bigger “6 person” type. An American crew are said to have come up with a similar idea a few years back, and are poised to begin selling their sheltercraft in a couple years at a much lower price point. Really, though, who hasn’t already thought of it?
The big boy six and eight person capacity models are good and stable (not mentioning the difference with the more boat-like shapes on the market), but after a while you kinda wish you could play with something a little more nimble. Nothing beats the old one man “hamster balls” for stunts and multi-pod sports–but, with some aftermarket customization, these roomy four person numbers look to be a comfy choice for day trips. Storm riding, anyone?
