Take on not one, but two high-speed, water-based missions with this 007 Powerboat Adventure day in Southampton.
The world’s favourite spy, James Bond, loves to get himself involved in a high-speed powerboat chase - most famously remembered for the road jump stunt performed on the Louisiana marshes in the film Live and Let Die - and this is your golden opportunity to take the controls and live out your own James Bond fantasy on open waters.
During the session, you’ll experience the raw power of two of the UK’s most impressive powerboats under the expert guidance of a professional instructor.
First, take control of the Honda Formula 4-Stroke championship (HF4S), the largest, most exciting offshore powerboat series in the world. And feel the speed and grace of this highly responsive machine as your experienced driver takes you out on the UK’s south coast, where the quiet waters of the Solent will become your aquatic playground. Open up the throttle and see the full potential of what the boat can do, before racing against the clock on a demanding, but thrilling, offshore racing circuit.
Your second mission of the day is a ride on the mighty Jet Viper, a sleek vessel comprising of a lightweight body, with a 6.7 litre engine and packed with 450 break-horse-power and equipped with a Hamilton Jet Drive. The Jet Viper is one of the fastest and most manoeuvrable powerboats on water, combining incredible agility with extreme speeds. The Jet Viper is perfectly designed for performing high-speed spins, wake-jumps and side-slides across the surface of the water.
Providing you don’t get a call from M at MI6 with your next assignment, your experience will conclude with a souvenir photograph of you with both boats to commemorate your thrilling James Bond adventures.
