We love this Vintage Flying Experience within easy reach of Southampton, Hampshire.
Capable of reaching speeds of up to 42 knots, this dominant Sunseeker beauty is sure to impress even the most skilled sea farer. After a full safety briefing, if the skipper is happy and you are feeling confident, take control of the helm and head for the breathtaking scenery of the Isle of Wight. On hand to demonstrate the rules of the waterways is a friendly skipper who finishes off by taking this amazing boat to the limit, displaying its full power and capability. After returning to the marina, a member of staff takes a picture which will be posted out as a special memento of the experience.
