ZapCat Experience4 – ZapCat Special vouchers became a best seller nearly as quickly as the powerful RIB launches off a wave six feet in the air! The offshore rescue boats were discovered to be far too much fun to be used solely for rescue and were turned into a racing series, and at just £49; the only thing more pleasing than 3G in the turns and hitting 0-50mph in 3 seconds is the price!
