Featuring & Featuring Auto Boat

Heading out onto a canal, river or reservoir aboard a little boat is something that very much appeals to our sensibilities here at Coolector HQ and, as tech lovers, we will definitely want a gadgety edge to any vessel that we head out onto the waters with and that’s why we’ve been left thoroughly impressed with this cracking Auto Boat by Featuring & Featuring.

Made in conjunction with boat builder, Will Reid, and programmer Jonas Jongejan, Featuring & Featuring, a London based creative agency, the Auto Boat is a single passenger vessel that can be controlled via your smartphone, so you can sit back and chill with your craft beers and steer the boat with the touch of a button.

Crafted from marine ply and veneered with American cherry, which was picked out for the aesthetic appeal and strength to weight ratio, the Auto Boat by Featuring & Featuring is just the sort of contraption that will tempt us out onto the water. Take a look at a few more shots of it in action below:

If you’re a regular out on the water but want to make things a good deal more laid back and technological superior then the Auto Boat might just be the thing that you’ve been looking for. We’re big fans of the cracking design here at Coolector HQ and the fact that it has the technological edge that we love is just the icing on the cake.
