If you’re looking for a fun and exciting day out and a chance to get your blood pumping as you compete against your friends, then this triple powerboat experience really is the ultimate in water-based fun! During this adrenaline-fuelled experience you will get the opportunity to drive three awesome powerboats and learn all the fundamental skills involved in handling such remarkable vehicles.

With its 300hp supercharged engine and smooth aerodynamic design, the Saber Hypercat is one of the fastest commercial powerboats in the world and guarantees you both speed AND style; the Saber Thunderbolt is a unique high-performance inflatable catamaran that can accelerate and change direction astonishingly quickly, enabling you to have fun racing through the surf; the Honda BF150 likes to be driven ‘on edge’ and you will have a blast racing against your friends on two different offshore circuits. Create a real splash with this exhilarating and enjoyable experience!

Your Ultimate Powerboat Day in Southampton will begin with a safety briefing and an introduction to the three boats. You will then get changed into the Saber Powersports racing team kit and safety gear, and then it’s onto the water. You’ll board the boats along with an experienced instructor who will run through the driving procedures. For the Saber Hypercat you’ll be given instruction on cornering and racing techniques, wave jumping and high-speed take offs, before having a go yourself. You will be able to practice these new driving techniques on the Saber Thunderbolt too, before you're taken to a high-speed offshore circuit where you will have the opportunity to race against the clock to find the ‘Aquastig of the Year’! You will then compete in the ‘Honda 150 Challenge’. The boats are set up for racing and have a high performance Honda 2.4L VTEC engine and racing seats. Then it’s on to the BF150 Powerboat Challenge, which is on an offset rectangular circuit with each person getting 3 laps; on the first you’ll get used to executing a turn, and on the second and third laps you will each be timed! Your experience will finish off with a full prize giving, in which awards will be presented to the winners and runners up. This is the perfect ending to a hugely enjoyably and memorable day out!
