Overview

Experience the power and agility of the Viper powerboat with this 60-minute thrill ride out on the open water around Southampton. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, this remarkable craft employs a Hamilton Jet Drive to both propel and steer the vessel, allowing for tighter turns, crash stops, donuts, side slides and spin that would be impossible with a conventional outboard motor. You’ll be thrown around and thoroughly soaked, so bring a dry set of clothes for afterwards!

The ride of my life
30 July 2018
I've just experienced the most thrilling my experience of my life: a ride on Southampton Water on Saber's Jet Viper, the only craft of its type in the UK. The 'experience', which my wife bought me for my birthday, was preceded by a safety talk and donning of life-jackets, following which I and ten other thrill-seekers boarded the bright yellow Jet Viper with Tony the skipper. After a leisurely 10 mins cruising down the River Itchen (5 knot speed limit) Tony opened the throttle and threw the craft through an endless stream of manoeuvres, crossing the wakes of passing ships: side-slides, spins, doughnuts and crash stops. It wasn't long before we were soaking wet and several times I left my seat as the Jet Viper crashed into a trough (no wonder we were told to hold on tight). On at least one occasion the craft left the water altogether! Half way through the ride we swapped seats so that those in the back could experience the front seats, then off for more thrills and laughter. The only down side was that the Southampton Water was as calm as a mill-pond so perhaps the ride was gentler than usual. But the hot weather meant that we were virtually dry by the time we arrived back at Shamrock Quay. The ride was tremendous fun and is unreservedly recommended to all thrill seekers.

Great fun!

Really enjoyed it and at a great price too! Only reason it didn't get a 5* is they said we'd get a free photo, so i didn't take my phone, but then they didn't take one and i have a terrible memory and only remember things if i have a photo!

Superb Water Fun
17 August 2016
Very professional setup, on arrival you are given a buoyancy jacket and showerproof jacket and am given a good safety briefing. After a short slow run out of the river into Southampton water the boat is then put through its paces. Loads of thrills, spins and full stops with a great and experienced driver. Will be doing this again

southampton 90 rib ride
02 September 2015
Brought for a christmas present for my son and daughter. They really enjoyed the boat trip but unfortunately the staff who you book in with were quite rude and unhelpful, so they nearly missed the trip. However once they were on the boat, they had a fanastic trip round Southampton waters and the driver of the boat made up for the beginning.

Fast Fun!
12 July 2015
This experience started, and ended, with a gentle and interesting journey along the Solent. However once we reached open waters it was full throttle fun. The driver put the Viper Jet through lots of manoeuvres which left the passangers clinging onto their handlebars and trying ( unsuccessfully ) to avoid getting soaked. A great experience for all ages.
