BOTE has unveiled their new Hangout Suite, which is a dazzling collection of eight inflatable floats that can be used individually, yet are best enjoyed when combined together to create a completely customizable Hangout spot for relaxing with friends and family.
The Hangout Suite was designed for complete harmonization and the ability to piece together the hero items of the collection such as the Hangout 240, Hangout Couch, and Hangout Lounge with the Suite’s other complementary pieces really sets the precedent for lounging and relaxing. Those who enjoy hanging out around the central chill location will appreciate the Hangout Chair and Hangout FLOATube. The BOTE’s Hangout Suite illustrates their understanding of how people want to enjoy the water, creating a full-on floating oasis.
“The float category has just been so stale for as long as I can remember. I see the exact same things on the market now as I did when I was a kid,” said Corey Cooper, BOTE CEO and co-founder. “We just thought it was about time to up the style, quality, and function factor for everything that floats – from boating to pools. So people could just hang out. Many of our customers have come to know our brand from the paddle sports side, but we are much more than that. We just want to make next-level floats for people to enjoy time on the water with family and friends…live the lifestyle. I think we’ve nailed it with our new Hangout Series.”
Made with BOTE’s proprietary AeroBOTE construction, each product in the new Hangout Suite is lightweight, portable, and extremely durable. The packability and ease of setup makes it simple to transform the pieces in the Hangout Suite from folded up in the carry sling into a party ready setup in minutes. The boat friendly designs can be quickly and easily stored below deck when running to the sandbar or rafting up and also makes for convenient storage in the garage or closet for the home and the pool.
Whether you are in a FLOATube or a full Hangout 360 configuration, you and your crew can be tethered together with the DockLink Connection straps, that are standard with each piece in the series. Each Hangout product has multiple lash points to allow for thousands of different configurations, which gives you the ability to create the ultimate water lounge experience. BOTE’s proprietary MAGNEPOD™ system – magnetic attachment points – keep drinks in place even during the craziest cannonball sessions.
The BOTE Hangout Suite
The eight pieces in BOTE’s Hangout Suite include the Hangout 240, Hangout 120, Hangout Bar, Hangout Lounge, Hangout Couch (Port and Starboard options), Hangout Chair and Hangout FLOATube.
The Hangout 240 is a refreshed version of BOTE’s original Dock Hangout and the one that inspired the brand to take things to the next level. They adjusted the curve to make it an even 240º, which paved the way for them to create the Hangout 120.
The Hangout 240 features four MAGNEPOD attachment points. MSRP $1549
The Hangout 120 nestles perfectly against the Hangout 240 to make a complete 360º “round table” so that you can enjoy every minute of relaxation with your crew. It also works awesome as a little brother to the 240 if you don’t need quite that much real estate.
Features two MAGNEPOD attachment points. MSRP $799
The Hangout Bar is built to perfectly hold BOTE’s KULA 5 Cooler in the middle and features four MAGNEPOD™ attachment points to keep your drinks stable.
Plus, the Hangout Bar was designed to perfectly nest against other Hangout products like the Hangout 240, Hangout 120, and Hangout Lounge. MSRP $349
The Hangout Lounge is the next-level evolution of BOTE’s original Dock FX, enhanced with a removable and adjustable seat back to allow you to treat it like a lounge chair on the water, and with a grooved shape at the foot of the raft to allow it to pair up seamlessly with a Hangout KULA Bar.
The Hangout Lounge features one MAGNEPOD attachment point. MSRP $699
Hangout Couch (Port and Starboard)
The Hangout Couch features a chaise lounge on one end and comes in two configurations, just like a couch you’d buy for your living room – Port (left) and Starboard (right).
The Hangout Couch features three MAGNEPOD attachment points. MSRP $799
Fun on the water is a blast, but it can get a bit toasty once that mid-summer heat sets in. At the end of the day, nothing beats a chair that can float in the water. Get ready to fight over this one, it may just be the best seat in the house.
The Hangout Chair features two MAGNEPOD attachment points. MSRP $299
Last but certainly not least, BOTE raises the bar with a true river float tube.
And this bad boy has all the bells and whistles: BVA padding for your back, a MAGNEPOD™ attachment point for your drinks, PRV – pressure relief valve – so your tube never over pressurizes, D-rings to lash to your friends, for light towing, or to lash to the Hangout Bar (or other Hangout products), and mesh netting underneath so you stay comfortable and supported. MSRP $399
Whether it is with boats, on lakes, at pools, rivers or even the backyard, the BOTE Hangout Suite revolutionizes enjoying time on the water with friends and family. The full range of the new Hangout Suite is available at BOTE flagship retail locations, BOTE dealers, and online at boteboard.com.
