Beached Boat(2 of 13)

The boat is a hydrotherapy spa with 12 jets and a 5-foot-deep well; two jets are placed in the floor for foot massage. To achieve the antique-wood look of the boat, landscape designer Scott Cohen and his team built the framework on site using faux-wood siding for the concrete forms, then stained the resulting wood-textured finish with coffee-colored stains.
