The Dutch have given us many great things and The HotTug is no exception. The unique idea came to Frank de Bruijn when he wanted a swimming enclosure beside his canal boat to enjoy through all the highs and lows of Rotterdam’s weather. The HotTug was bought to London when Stuart “Tommo” Thomson was enjoying a break in the Dutch city and saw them cruising down the canals. Immediately he knew he had to get these to the UK as they would be as much of a hit in London. When friends and family loved the idea too, Tommo knew he was onto something and decided to share the love and raise the money required to bring HotTug to the UK with a Crowdfunder campaign. It was clear that the People were very behind the idea with the £10,000 goal being smashed within the first week and the campaign resulting with an amazing £30,469 raised by 221 supporters. Since HotTug was launched at the Islington Boat Club in July 2017 we have had the pleasure of hosting 100s of trips and looking forward to hosting many, many more!
