Sunseeker Experience


Meet the crew at Ocean Village Marina, Southampton (outside Banana Wharf bar/restaurant). Then make way to the 40? Sunseeker Powerboat. Settle on board with a full safety briefing from the skipper and crew. Then at a steady 6 Knots leave the marina, taking in the sights of the QM2 dock and other cruise ships on their docks, whilst at this speed the crew can go through basic navigation eg rules of the road, direction of buoys, use of the Garmin touch screen plotter and answer any questions. On reaching the end of the speed limit area, the throttles are opened - with a speed of up to 36 knots and feeling the power of this exciting vessel, the skipper will then demonstrate what she can do! Once conditions allow, you will get a turn at the helm, steering a course via basic use of the plotter and skipper instruction to the Isle of Wight through the open waters of the Solent. On reaching the mouth of the River Medina we will slow back to 6 knots and travel upstream taking in the sights of both East and West Cowes, home of the world famous sailing regatta. Then it's back down to the open water again and time to steer a course back to Southampton. Then the throttles are opened for power boating at the optimum speed! If time allows, we can have a go at our always very popular 'man overboard' procedures (with a prop, not a guest!). Arrive back at Ocean Village Marina. We guarantee that you will come back totally thrilled and exhilarated, after this experience!
