Nothing says summer like a shiny new speedboat. Jump headfirst into the season with the Corscair 36 European Edition. The latest design from Chris Craft offers unprecedented luxury and interior space for its category, while packing plenty of power. The Volvo-sourced standard twin V8 engines push out 840 horsepower and speeds up to 40 knots. Other “nice-to-have” features onboard include an extended fiberglass swim platform, a custom stainless steel windshield with Solex glass, a custom mahogany and stainless steel steering wheel, and an entertainment center complete with wet bar, cutting board and storage. The interior forward cabin also provides a comfortable 6’2″ of headroom, and even has a stateroom with a queen size bed at the rear, making the boat capable of sleeping a total of four. Choosing which three of your closest friends (girls) will be joining you is the most work you’ll do all summer.
If you happen to drive your Jaguar C-X75 to Sotheby’s, and can’t go home without the 20×20 ft Nude Sitting on a Divan, then you’ve got a transportation dilemma on your hands. Grab your Handirack Inflatable Roof Rack($90.00) out of the trunk and strap that biotch to the roof. Inflated with a simple hand pump, the racks attach to the top of your car and can handle up to 180 lbs. Hopefully your nude isn’t on the chubby side.
Everything in your life has to have as beautiful a form as it does function. The S.T. Dupont Solid Gold Lighter in your pocket, the Lamborghini Estoque idling in your garage, and your regular Tuesday-nighter, Melody, all live up to that standard. So when it comes to an iPad dock, not any tchotchke display with speakers will do. The new AeroPad Two($870), available with black, white, or bamboo (our favorite) front finish, is almost too good-looking for your iPad. At about 3 feet long and 22 pounds, the AeroPad features multiple 30-pin docks in the front center to provide for vertical or horizontal placement of the connected device, a USB port with support for WMA, AIFF, WAV, and MP3 files, an auxiliary input for other audio sources, five speakers, including a dedicated subwoofer, 200 Watts of total power, and an included remote control. How’s that for function? Put it on your shelf with or without your iDevice and you and Melody can spend your Tuesdays admiring it.
