Itinerary
  • Meet the Skipper and Crew outside the Banana Wharf Bar/Restaurant in Ocean Village Marina, Southampton.
  • We will then make our way to the Sunseeker. Once settled onboard and after the safety briefing, the Skipper will take you through the marina where you will see other ‘millionaire lifestyle’ powerboats and yachts on their moorings.
  • Continuing with a cruise down the River Itchen to Southampton Water for the opportunity to see the magnificent cruise ships on their docks. At this stage, the Skipper will explain navigation and basic plotting techniques and answer any questions. All participants will get the option to have a drive at slow speed to get the feel of this luxury powerboat.
  • On reaching the open waters of The Solent where the speed restriction ends, the Skipper will open up the throttles for a “full-on” blast with speeds of up to 39 knots using the supercharged and turbocharged twin engines at 460HP to display the capabilities of this superb 40’ Sunseeker performance powerboat.
  • Then once again it's 'OVER TO YOU' to take a turn at the helm to drive and feel the superb handling characteristics of this sleek powerboat at high speed.
