The Super Boat 2015 season is off to a flyer!

This year’s 6th annual Thunder on Cocoa Beach Super Boat Grand Prix gave spectators a front row seat to fierce competition accompanied by heart-dropping roll overs and brutal waters. As a result of talent and exceptional hard work, the CMS 52’ MTI team came out ahead, earning first place in the Superboat Unlimited Class.

With last year’s winner, Miss Geico, competing, CMS needed more than just a fast boat to win this year. Along with averaging 82.33 miles per hour in this year’s race and scoring a total of 551 points in the event, the camaraderie among CMS’s team members was incredible.

“We had fun with those teams in Key West last year, so we might as well go with them again,” team owner Bob Bull said, “You don’t fix what’s not broken”.

STIHL and Twisted Metal Motorsports also ranked first in this year’s events, with Twisted Metal seizing the gold in the Superboat Extreme Class, and STIHL – after overcoming a bumpy start – grasping first place in the Superboat Class.

When asked about the rough beginning the team had, STIHL team member JR Noble elaborated on the issues the boat engine was having. “We were basically just out there for a boat ride. It was a tough day all around for a lot of boats, including ours, but I guess if there’s a saving grace to the whole thing, we won the race.” Noble said.

No stranger to the intensity of these races, President and founder of Super Boat International, John Carbonell, was delighted to see the race complemented with the fervent emotion of the crowd.

“We’re seeing incredible growth in our fan base, and I think that’s why our competitions are becoming more and more spirited – the fans are inspiring our teams.” Carbonell also congratulated the winning teams, adding that each team deserved to celebrate their accomplishment.
