Two adventure thrill seekers had a once in a lifetime experience at the Dubai International Boat Show, riding along on board an extreme offshore powerboat catamaran which is capable of reaching speeds of up to 120mph.

Two more lucky winners will make wakes on Friday, with a hashtag-powered competition hosted by Dubai International Boat Show.

Karen Mclean, also known as the blogger Secret Squirrel, and Alex Jimenez took to the cockpit of the catamaran with Brett Luhrmann and Pål Virik Nelson, two of Team Australia’s top pilots.

Jimenez, known on Instagram as The Yacht Guy: “Of all the extreme things that I have done, this was one of the most exciting experiences of my life! It’s a two man operation, so I even got to drive a bit with the help of the pilot. We took the boat out on the water and got up to 114 mph!”

On Friday 3 March, two more winners of the Dubai International Boat Show’s Instagram competition will take a ride-along in the Team Australia Boat.

Winners landed their seat in the extreme boat by hashtagging their way using #dubaiboatshow and #extremeadventure on Instagram.
