Southampton Powerboat Escape for Two
Grab life by the steering wheel with a high-speed offshore powerboat blast and cosy overnight hotel stay. On board the boat, enjoy a leisurely cruise before the skipper opens up the throttle and zips down the Solent, flaunting high-speed cornering and wave-jumping for a high-octane escapade. At the driver's discretion, take the controls for a turn at piloting. By contrast, succumb to comfort at DoubleTree by Hilton Southampton. After a night in an en suite twin or double room, welcome the morning in with a tasty cooked breakfast and visit the hotel's Pavilion Bar and serene wooded gardens. This is a chance to discover gorgeous Southampton, with its meandering coastline and historic sights, with some wet 'n' wild powerboating action thrown in too!
