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.
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.
