"Ground Boat"? Yup, that's right. The Iguana 29 Ground Boat ($TBA) is a unique vessel that sports a pair of retractable all-terrain caterpillar tracks to let it traverse terra firma as well as the open seas, eliminating the need for marinas, docks, and other vestments of traditional watercraft. Of course, it's also designed for discerning owners, and as such offers open-water speeds of up to 35 knots, a teak floor, and room for up to 10 passengers.
Enjoy the timeless art of boating aboard an equally timeless watercraft with the Hacker Craft Neiman Marcus Edition Speedboat ($250,000). This 27-foot solid mahogany vessel takes 1,400 hours to build — by hand, of course — and offers features such as a Mercury 8.2 High Output engine producing 425hp, a gold-leafed waterline, underwater lighting, a deep violet bottom, cream-colored seating, GPS, a refrigerator, a monogrammed humidor, and a premium stereo system. In addition, $3,000 of the purchase goes to the Double H Ranch, a program that provides year-round support for families with children suffering from life-threatening illnesses.
A gas-powered, adult-sized big wheel? Count us in. The Green Machine ($75,000) is categorized as a three-wheeled motorcycle, but its looks — inspired by the classic pedaled tricycle of the same name — scream out "toy", even as its Harley-Davidson v-twin Evo engine pushes you along at speeds of up to 50 mph. Other features include a six-speed transmission, a range of 400 miles, and the ability to attract ridiculous amounts of attention. [Scouted by Scott]
