General Scooter Guide - Using Your Scooter

Enjoy your cruise make the most of your scooter to enhance your holiday. Please ensure to park safely when not riding, especially in busy areas on board.

Getting Started

Ensure the charger has been unplugged from the main socket and the scooter itself. Once seated adjust the tiller, and be sure you are comfortable with the controls.

Operating Your Scooter

  • Turn the key to the ON position.
  • Adjust the speed dial for your desired speed.
  • Anti-clockwise for slow and clockwise for fast.
  • Grip the handlebars firmly and with your right thumb push the speed control lever forward. The harder you press the faster you will travel but only to the speed you have selected. Pressing the left speed control lever will engage reverse gear. Please note we can (on request) exchange the left and right function.
  • Release the speed control lever to stop the scooter. Just after the scooter comes to a standstill you will hear a click sound from the rear, this is the brake being applied. The scooter will not move even on an incline.
  • Remember to switch the scooter off when dismounting in case the speed control lever is accidentally pushed.


Two Ways to Charge

We advise that you charge the battery pack every night.

If the batteries drain too low it is possible that the charger will fail to recognise them and not charge.

The charger unit has a built in safety feature which ensures that the battery will not overcharge.

Always remove the scooter key whilst charging.

The correct procedure when charging any electrical product is to first connect the cable from the charger to the scooter; secondly connect the cable from the other end charger to the wall socket. If the socket is a switched type then turn on.

On non-British vessels, an adaptor may be required. The charger is a 220-volt unit, however, it will still charge if connected to 110-volt outlet however the charge time will be considerably longer.
