Like a traditional salt-water swimming pool in the middle of the ocean, the Floating Pool fixes to the stern of a yacht and is particularly focused towards use by children as it provides security, clean water and safety while swimming.
It consists of an inflatable, flexible frame equipped with handles and fixing devices, and a floating net with bottom and weights to hold it down.
Due to its inflatable nature, the pool’s structure avoids damage in the event of waves or strong winds and swimmers can lean on it comfortably at any given time.
The rigid yet flexible structure makes the pool easy to set up and capable of fitting any yacht. When the first was delivered to its owner in July, it took just 15 minutes to set-up and return to its bag.
The pool measures eight metres in length, four metres in width, and two metres in depth. It has been designed to be easy to fold together and store in very little space; its textile bag measures just one x one x one metres.
The Floating Pool currently carries a price tage of €9,000.
The company plans to incorporate the optional additions of sun-protection, night lighting, and water toys as well as fully-customised pools in the near future.
The inventor of the Floating Pool, Jean-François Konieczny, has also created protective net structures for use in beaches, ports and a range of special sites.
