Super Boat International season set to be as big as Super Bowl

April 24, 2014

Did we say “as big as the Super Bowl?” well why not, we think sport on water is just as exciting as sport on land and the Super Boat International (SBI) season kick off did not disappoint. These ultimate speedsters of the sea exceed average speeds well over 100 mph, placing the sport firmly in the extreme sports category. This season’s first GP race took place on the Gulf Coast of Florida at Englewood Beach with Team Gasse winning the Superboat Unlimited Class. With 30 boats competing in the inaugural Charlotte Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix event, the fans and teams were wowed by the turn out and excitement of offshore powerboat racing at its best. At World Sports Boats we are proud to announce that we will be providing full coverage of this seasons GP races and detail into this extreme water racing.

In the passage of model years, one introductory boat to another, “new” and “different” are the easy bywords. “Valuable,” not so much. The demonstration of authentic, enduring value in each new feature on a boat becomes exponentially more challenging, yet rewarding with each passing season, and so now the Cobalt 243 follows in the direct lineage of the rightfully recognized Cobalt A25, last year’s fan favorite in the delivery of genuine value.
