Each year, Superboat International draws thrill seekers from around the world to this exhilarating, heart pounding offshore racing event that attracts the meanest and fastest boats on the water! Team members and spectators alike experience the roaring thunder of these amazing feats of engineering.
These high powered machines have 2 man crews that maneuver the boats through a 5 mile course at nearly 200mph for an adrenaline charged week of racing!
