You'll pick up serious speed once you turn South and head towards the Solent, and will be travelling at speeds of up to 55 knots!

You will go by Hamble River and the historic Calshot Castle, before putting the boat through its paces at Brambles Bank. This 90 minute powerboat ride gives you plenty of time to appreciate what these boats can do, as you are treated to some exhilarating jumps, tight turns, and fantastic wake-rides!
