These incredible hot tub boats allow punters to float through London’s waterways – while in a JACUZZI.

The HotTug watercrafts – which seat up to seven people and are heated to a balmy 38˚C – can currently be spotted in the canals of Islington, North London, and West India Quay’s docks.

The hot tubs give revelers the chance to chill with a drink while enjoying views of the capital’s skyscrapers.

Company HotTug UK – the only one of its kind in the country was founded by Brit Stuart ‘Tommo’ Tomson in 2017 after he came across the vessels in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and decided to introduce the innovative idea in the UK.

After rave reviews in London, the hot tub boats, which cost £225 to hire for 90 minutes, are set to launch in Liverpool later this year.

HotTug’s chief operating officer Austin Mackle said: “People are loving it, we are open year-round and our reviews speak for themselves.

“Currently we are in the top three outdoor activities to take part in in London, according to TripAdvisor.

“We have two sites in London and we’ll be opening in Liverpool in the coming months.

“It would be amazing to have these boats in all the most beautiful waterways the UK has to offer, but we are taking it one day at a time.

“Right now we want to make sure the sites we have now are the best they can possibly be.”
