This superb Luxury Powerboat Day in Southampton is the ultimate
in water-based thrills, and makes an exhilarating and absolutely
unforgettable group activity, perfect for stag and hen parties!
During this thrilling activity, you will spend the day out on the blue waters of the Solent, and can put your nerves to the test as you control a mighty powerboat and race against your friends! Your experience will begin with a safety briefing and introduction to the Honda BF150 powerboat before you get kitted up in the Saber Powersports racing gear. An expert instructor will show you how to control the boat and you'll soon be ready and raring to go! You'll have 30 minutes to get used to the boat and put the Honda BF150 through its paces; get ready for a serious adrenaline buzz as you tear across the water at eye-watering speeds! You'll then head back to dry land to enjoy a delicious lunch at a picturesque riverside pub (not included in price). After some relaxation it's time to hit the water again - and this time it's competitive! Each person will race three times around a rectangular offshore circuit; the first lap is to get used to controlling the boat and turning the sharp corners, and the second and third laps are timed. Once the experience has concluded and a winner is determined, you will all enjoy a full prize-giving, where there are awards for the winner and the runner up.
This is a fantastically enjoyable Powerboat experience where you will have an absolute blast learning all the fundamental skills to drive this brilliant powerboat! If you're looking for a day out that you'll never forget, then this luxury powerboat day is just the ticket!

My husband was booked in for two boats we only found out by accident the day before travel to Southampton that one was broken so he only had one boat. But thay have allowed us to book next year for the hypercat and have given me a letter confirming this so all good in the end. the communication was a little unsettling, we had no confidence that things were ok! we would still use again and I can not fault the service from Experience Days
