Drive two incredible powerboats in Southampton and learn the tips and tricks needed to take on the big blue in style with Saber Powersports. You’ll get a chance to drive both the Thunderbolt, an exceptionally fast inflatable catamaran originally designed for surf rescue, and the BF150 Honda race boat, a fast and manoeuvrable craft, and be taught to drive both by a Skipper with a taste for speed! Once you’ve had a safety briefing and an introduction to give you a little more info about these boats, it’s time to don your racing and safety gear, and get into a comfortable seat. You’ll get an hour on each boat, and your Skipper will show you how to race through corners like a pro, jump over waves and take off at high speeds! As well as picking up these skills, you’ll also get a debrief afterwards, during which you’ll receive a photo to add to your memories of the day.
