If you've been concerned about what kind of mutant art car you would take to this year's Burning Man or have just always really wanted a Hyundai that looked like a boat, today is your lucky day. This custom Boat-undai is currently on Ebay looking for a new captain/driver.

We don't know exactly when the combination of an old Tri-hull Motorboat and a 2000 Hyundai Elantra stops being "something weird I created in my backyard" and starts being an "art car" but according to the current owner that is exactly what you are looking at. The Boat-undai is the result of three years of construction and improvement for the current owner. The vehicle was created for Burning Man and is already registered for this year's event (Evidently that's a selling point to potential art car buyers).


If you are in the market for a weird Hyundai/boat mixture without any amphibious properties, we think the boat sells itself. Where else are you going to get a Bimini top, air conditioning, flame throwers and Ford LTD wagon tail lights all in a four wheeled package that looks like a boat? The answer is nowhere else.

Unfortunately it appears the Boat-undai is strictly an off road vehicle these days, limiting the potential use of such a vehicle to, well, Burning Man. Of course that's perfect if you happen to be searching for a ready-made original art car that looks like a boat for just such a purpose. The current owner is looking for $3500, half of their investment before they let the Boat-undai go driving (floating?) off into the Sunset.
