This is your chance to experience three of the fastest and most exciting powerboats in the UK and drive two of them! You will spend three hours on the water with an hour on each boat including a Honda Race Boat, Thunderbolt and finally a Jet Viper powerboat. You will have twenty minutes of hands on driving tuition on the Honda Race boat and Thunderbolt, feeling the speed and grace of these highly responsive racing machines. Your experienced instructor will ensure that you make the most of your time at the controls of the boats, learning cornering and racing technique, wave jumping and high speed take-offs. Once you are feeling confident you will have the opportunity to test your skills on a challenging offshore racing circuit.
Your day begins with a safety briefing and an introduction to the boats. You will then get changed into a racing team kit and safety gear. It is then time to take to the water! Start off in the Honda Formula 4-Stroke championship (HF4S) which is the largest, most exciting offshore powerboat series in the world. Then get ready to take on the Thunderbolt, a catamaran powered by a high performance 90hp outboard. Perfect for adrenaline-junkies, this experience is wet, wild and extremely fast! Finally it is time for a ride in the 450HP Jet Viper powerboat which features a Hamilton jet drive that can out manoeuvre any other craft on the water. You will love the wake jumping, spins and side slides that this fantastic boat lashes out.
The boats all have comfortable secure seating and this experience is suitable for all adventure seekers. Don’t forget to bring a waterproof disposable camera!
