Thunderbolt Powerboat Driving Experience
Add to Basket
Take to the water for an adrenaline-fuelled adventure with this Thunderbolt Powerboat Driving Experience. Get behind the wheel and prepare to bolt across the open waters of the Solent strait in the nimble three-seater South African Thunderbolt.
Agile, responsive and great fun on water, the Thuderbolt allows you to change direction as fast as you like, accelerate quickly to hair-raising speeds and jump the waves. A fully qualified skipper will be on hand with dual controls to help guide you through the process; once you’ve tried your hand at racing, you can sit back and enjoy the ride as everyone takes a turn. With a full hour on the water, there’s plenty of time for excitement, and you’ll get to take in the picturesque surroundings, too. Hold on tight and enjoy the thrills.
