Celebrating 43 years in business, Beachcomber launches three limited-edition spas
Beachcomber is celebrating its 43rd anniversary with a trio of limited-edition, full-feature spas packed with light and sound options — all at a discount. So if you hear somebody say, “Alexa, heat my spa to 102 degrees” or “Hey, Google, turn on my jets,” it might be thanks to Beachcomber’s limited-time promotion.
Launched in July, the three new Beachcomber hot tubs are the 750 LE HYBRID4, the top model of all Beachcomber offerings; the 590 LE HYBRID4, the top model in its 500 series of tubs; and the 380 LE HYBRID4, the best of the 300 series.
“What really sets these models apart from our regular lineup is the menu of our most popular features, jam packed into three different series — at three different price points, with significant savings to entice the most discerning customer,” says Stephen Reed, executive vice president at Beachcomber. “There is something for everyone with our limited-edition models.”
The top two LE models include Beachcomber’s new Easy Touch Smart control, as well the BIC-e app, plus Google or Alexa voice commands. Visually appealing features from the skirting to the lighting have also been added, as well as enhanced topside controls and Roman Arch Waterfalls backlit with LEDs. Customers can pre-order these elite spas from dealers for up to $5,900 in savings.
“The Beachcomber limited-edition spas have just been fabulous over the years,” says Murray Floyd, owner of the Beachcomber Cranbrook dealership in British Columbia, Canada, for more than 20 years. “They always put a little bit of extra care and attention into them. Any time you have a special edition, it comes with extra excitement because they’re not going to last.”
If voice commands are not your thing, the new Beachcomber hot tubs also offers bells, like a stereo with Bluetooth and five colors, along with whistles, such as the Reflex Foot Massage, which diverts pressure from the top jets to the bottom jets — something Floyd calls “absolutely phenomenal.”
Many of these new elements can be controlled via smartphone with the new topside control. For example, a homeowner who just shocked his hot tub and wants to run another jet cycle for circulation can do so by simply pushing a button on his phone. Same thing goes for increasing or decreasing the temperature.
Floyd appreciates the QSS with Air Connect, a wireless Bluetooth system for playing music. “You put your phone in there and it connects to it,” he says. “There are no speakers. It’s based on transducers that are all around the spa, so you actually feel the music.”
Reed says Beachcomber developed these hot tubs to provide a single focus for prospects looking for a fully featured tub.
“We saw a gap in our current offerings, and the bridge needed to be a special line of hot tubs that took the guesswork out of buying,” Reed says. “We added our most popular features to select models, keeping the acrylic and skirt colors the same, which allowed us to extend substantial savings on to our customers.”
In any other non-pandemic year, Reed says these spas would have launched earlier and been available quicker. But while COVID-19 caused a spike in sales, it also came with supply-chain issues.

“Traditionally, we would have sold these hot tubs two months before our launch date,” Reed explains. “This would allow the LEs to be in stock at the local stores when the promo launched. This year, however, we were unable to follow the same launch program, and unfortunately due to the unprecedented sales we saw throughout the pandemic — and the supply-chain issues that ensued — we are subject to longer than usual lead times for our new LE models.”
The LE lineup can be ordered through October at all Beachcomber Hot Tubs dealerships throughout North America, as well as its online store and the Beachcomber Hot Tubs experience outlets in Surrey, British Columbia; Oakville, Ontario; and Laval, Quebec.
