Is there really a market for these things?

In case you've been waiting, your wait is over, floating hot tubs have finally hit the market. You just fill them with water and then heat the water to 100% with a wood stove. You're then ready for a leisurely sail, powered by either an electric or gasoline outboard, with your only worry being waves greater than 1 foot or the wakes of passing motorboats.    

Granted, they're built in the Netherlands and maybe boating is a bit different over there, but these Hot Tugs seem like they would have limited appeal, especially considering their price of between $11,600 to $21,400, and that's not including the cost to ship them shipped from Rotterdam.

I'm guessing these things are a lot better in theory than in practice.
