Power Boating Holidays
Water holds a special fascination for many people, and a lot of holiday makers have a strong desire to spend their holiday being by the sea or a lake. Whilst some just want to enjoy the sun and the beach, and maybe a gentle paddle or swim, others are passionately into their water sports, ranging from kitesurfing to jet skiing or diving. You might like all of those things, and want perhaps a little more excitement, adventure and most of all speed to get your adrenalin going and to find your relaxation escape at the same time.
If narrow boating is too slow for you, and you would like more control than sailing can offer, you might already have thought about going on a power boating holiday. What better way to relax and chill out, than speeding over blue waters with the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair. When you search our website for your perfect power boating holiday you will realise, just how many holidays, facilities and seas there are out there for you to explore and zoom around on. The world is your oyster and you will literally be spoilt for choice.
Never skippered a boat, but always wanted to learn how to and to find out, what it feels like to be in charge of a powerful boat – don’t be put off, as there are many holidays to choose from, which incorporate courses for all ability levels, taking you from novice to instructor level, if you so wish. Many places offering courses are specialist RYA motor cruising, powerboat or PWC training centres, and you will be able to learn everything and acquire all the skills needed to skipper your own boat and enjoy your power boating holiday. There will be enough time learning, skippering and relaxing.
Of course, you might already be a seasoned skipper on the lookout for the next adventure in a place you have not been to before. On our website you will find a multitude of diverse destinations with varying levels of comfort and luxury to suit your expectations of that perfect holiday. Spend your holiday in a great apartment, condo or house by some of the world’s most beautiful marinas, and just jump onto your boat and take off to explore or simply go for a spin to the next beach. There are some of the most spectacular locations for you to spend your holiday in, ranging from the Canary Islands, to Morocco, France, Greece and Florida to name but a few.
You get some great package deals, which are inclusive of boat hire and mooring. Most power boating holidays can be tailored to individual needs, and every kind of holiday maker can be catered for – be it singles, families, a group of friends or corporate teams. What you can expect is excellent accommodation, great weather and stunning surroundings. All you have to do is decide, where to speed off to, how much comfort to book and what sort of pampering to indulge in at the end of a hard power boating day.
There are many absolutely stunning power boats to choose from, some skippered and crewed - some bareboat charter - on the canals and rivers of Europe and around the coasts of many countries. If you are thinking of hiring and handling a boat yourself, on inland waterways, it's advisable to have a short theory lesson followed by some hands on tuition on the boat before going anywhere.
If you are planning to sail your power boat in close coastal waters then you will probably need a couple of days to learn 'the ropes' - but if you intend to cross a sea then there are elements of at least basic navigation that you will also need to know. A lot to learn - but terrific fun, a new skill and a thrilling way to just relax, unwind and spend your holiday. Even better if you hire a skipper, invite a few 'up for it' friends and have your cool teenage kids along to crew for you!
Here are loads of brilliant options to consider. Come on - what are you waiting for - time to push the boat out this year!
