A Zap Cat is essentially a heavyweight racing engine strapped to a lightweight twin-hull! On the Bournemouth Zap Cat Powerboat Experience guests get to feel the incredible power of these lightweight machines - and even get the chance to pilot a Zap Cat (weather permitting)!
What happens on the day for Bournemouth Zap Cat Powerboats?
Two Hour Zap Cat Experience:
Departing Bournemouth our instructor will take you for a thrilling ride in both a Zap Cat and a 250bhp RIB powerboat. Then, weather permitting it's your turn to drive! Feel the G-force whilst experiencing jaw-dropping big air jumps, and high speed turns. The thrilling Zap Cat Powerboat Experience lasts around two hours for groups, and guests are on the water for the majority of the session. The Zap Cats and RIB support boats pull up close enough for riders to hop between vessels at sea, so no going back between rides!
Five Hour 'Ultimate' Zap Cat Experience:
Board two RIBS and head into the Solent with two Zap Cats following. While the RIBS blast around the bay creating wakes for the Zap Cats to jump, guests take turns co-piloting the exhilarating Zaps. You'll be immersed in the action, moving around the nose, optimising performance and preventing flipping using counter-balance - this really gets the adrenaline pumping. After a couple of hours play on the Zaps the group will be ready for refreshment. Back on board the RIBS your group will zip across the Solent, to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, taking in the beautiful Alum Bay & Needles Park coastline. Docking in Yarmouth you'll disembark for a spot of lunch before returning at high speed across the Solent.
