The Top 10 Toys of Summer: Pick Your Poison

Though an inordinate amount of customization goes into designing a megayacht, little personalization is available for a yacht’s most personal tenders: PWCs. The new generations of personal watercraft from such manufacturers as Sea-Doo, Yamaha, and Kawasaki are faster, safer, and more fun than ever, but their aesthetics rarely measure up to the bold look of a bespoke megayacht. The UK-based aftermarket firm Venom Design addresses this shortcoming by offering custom styling for these and other PWCs (for roughly double the cost of a standard craft). Upgrades include special paint finishes, upholstered quilted seating, and materials such as carbon fiber and crocodile leather. Venom can also install satellite navigation systems, waterproof phones, depth finders, LED lights, and iPod-ready stereos to enhance the capabilities of—and the experience aboard—any PWC.
