Luxury is in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to the luxury lifestyle, we like to think that we know a thing or two.

Watercar

Welcome to the world?s fastest amphibious vehicle, The Watercar. Winner of the Guinness amphibious speed record, this hot rod reaches 60mph speeds in the water and can 0-60 in 4.5 seconds on the street. Speedy and sturdy, the car?s frames are built from chromoly steel for strength and powder-coated for corrosion protection. Starting at $200k, these four-seater vehicles are hand-built with an engine "based on the famous aluminum LS Corvette power train."

Cayago SEABOB F5

With Cayago's SEABOB F5, say goodbye to your awkward underwater floundering. Why strive to perfect your swim stroke when you could instead pick up one of these top-tier sea toys, channel your inner cetacean, and dominate the surf? The machine's muscular design will impress most and it can venture forty meters into depths both murky and mysterious, while even featuring a safety cut-off feature so that divers do not exceed their pre-selected diving depth, which is programmed via on-board interface. Bench-marked at an impressive top speed of 20 km/h above water and 18 km/h submersed, the F5 is able to silently introduce riders to the world of the sea for approximately sixty minutes on only one, overnight charge. Subjugate the waves whenever the need?or want?arises. We know you won't regret it.

EGO Semi Submarine

In just a few words, the EGO is the ultimate yacht toy. South Korean company, Raonhaje, created this baby so you can explore the underwater world with very little effort and virtually no training at all. The EGO is semi-submersible, meaning that the bottom portion sits under the surface for an incredible view while the top section floats above for those who prefer to remain in the sun.

JetLev-Flyer

For anyone with a mega yacht the $130k you will need to purchase a JetLev-Flyer is not much more than usual operating costs. However if you aren't quite in that tax bracket, a visit to a resort near you will shortly do the trick. Salt and fresh water friendly, this water-propelled jet-pack uses a 250-hp engine to shoot flyers up to 33 feet above the water at up to 22 miles per hour. Pick one of these up and after 10 hours of flight time, the makers claim you will be doing Donuts, Sea Otters and Leaping takeoffs in no time.

Powerski Jet Board

Somewhere between surfing and jet skiing there lives the JetBoard. Ride the waves or glassy water at speeds up to and over 35 miles per hour. This fun toy runs at 55 horsepower with 350 psi of thrust to push riders of up to 350 pounds. Although we doubt you will be hitting the full 35mph if you don't lose a few first. Can't wait to start carving waves? PowerSki plans to offer this bad boy at a $7,995.

Flying Hovercraft

The Flying Hovercraft from Hammacher Schlemmer is an amazing vehicle that is sure to rank as one of the year's best water toys. This incredible machine can travel at 70 miles per hour and is powered by a 130 horsepower, twin cylinder liquid-cooled gasoline engine. The Flying Hovercraft operates in both fresh and saltwater and also has the ability to glide over 30% inclines of soft terrain including sand, snow, mud, desert, and grass.

FlyNano

Ever imagined what it would be like to fly? FlyNano was created for just that--the pure fun of flying - no passengers, no cargo; just you, FlyNano and the endless blue. Flying across the water at 43mph, the craft can cruise through the air up to 90mph. Classified as a microlight aircraft, the FlyNano combines high-tech materials with extreme lightness and durability, without compromising on the flight characteristics. The winged water toy reaches sky high at 3,000m (1.9 miles).

SCUBACRAFT SC6

On the surface of the water, the SCUBACRAFT SC6 can propel up to six passengers at 45 knots. But the real reason that you have to have one of these is because underwater exploration at up to 100 feet below the surface is awesome. Underwater, the SCUBACRAFT zips around at up to 3 knots. Battery operated and silent, taking one of these for a spin will not disturb the fish. The price is available per request, but according to CNN, the smaller SC3 goes for about $164,000.

Iguana Yachts

A top-of-the-line toy, the Iguana loves a challenge! French designed, this innovative cruiser is created to rove land and explore as the first iguanas did millions of years ago, relishing the challenge of both terrain and sea conditions. With "sustainable motor cruising" and gently curving and widely spaced tracks, it can take on virtually any tricky surface, slope or incline. No need to be a sailor to master boating with the Iguana, however. The integrated under-carriage system gives their boats a functional ability inside and outside the water. Opening up the world of recreational sailing, with Iguana Yachts, no need to worry about finding a marina berth or getting into or out of the water.
