The Tubmarine is a new wood-fired hot tub, set to revolutionise the market. Combining expert craftmanship with the world’s leading construction materials, the Tubmarine heats up in under two hours, and requires no electricity and little maintenance. Made from 80% recycled materials it responds to the growing need for eco-friendly home and outdoor products. Kebony, a sustainable leader in modified wood, which is both weather resistant and highly durable, was chosen to clad the Tubmarine demonstrating a core commitment to eco-conscious living in the luxury, outdoor furniture sector.

Since 2013, the team behind the Tubmarine has been perfecting their designs to create the ultimate sustainable hot tub. Recognising the need for a shift from traditionally plastic products, and the desire for eco-conscious luxury living, the Tubmarine was expertly designed to become an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional products.

The beautiful product is the sum of its innovative and forward-thinking parts, and is a testament to the powerful combination of expert sustainable engineering with artistic design vision in modern product design.
