This powerful offshore cruiser features an open 'Mediterranean style' cockpit, sleek aerodynamic lines, with handling and speed that will amaze even the most experienced seafarer.
Not only will you get the chance to drive during your Sunseeker experience, but you can also soak up the atmosphere in the marina as others watch with envy whilst you cruise the Solent in style, heading off for a visit to the Isle of Wight. As well as having a go a driving the Sunseeker boat you'll learn some important rules such as basic navigation, buoy direction and using the touch screen plotter.
On reaching the mouth of the River Medina on the Isle of Wight, the pace slows to the 6 knots limit as you cruise up and down the river taking in the famous East and West Cowes.
