Offshore Superboats Rnd 1 Bowen QLD - April 29, 2018

The 2018 Australian Offshore Superboat Championship kicks off for 2018 in the scenic Far North Queensland waters of Bowen. Maritimo 11 and its crew of Steve Jellick and Tom Barry-Cotter are the reigning champions and are hoping to successfully defend their crown against an extremely strong field, who are hoping to knock them off their perch and claim the Australia 1.

Offshore POWERBOAT Racing | SUPER BOAT Miss Geico Rolls Over | Sarasota Grand Prix 2019

SARASOTA GRAND PRIX 2019: Super Boats MISS GEICO and VICTORY crash and roll over at the Class One Powerboat Offshore Racing.

Class One Division is comprised of the biggest and fastest race boats in the world. All boats in the new division weigh 12,000 pounds and are up to 50 feet long, with identical twin turbo race engines sealed and governed by Mercury Racing to ensure fairness. Most are made of carbon, Kevlar and S-glass for high performance, and are equipped with F-16 jet canopies. Up to 1,200 horsepower and max speed of more than 160 mph. Such monster power needs a crew of 2 people – a driver who controls the boat’s steering and a throttleman responsible for operating the engines. Amazing, right? I can only imagine the adrenaline rush in the cockpit.
The focus was once again on the reigning 2018 and 11 times overall world champion MISS GEICO with driver James Sheppard and throttleman Steve Curtis. However TEAM VICTORY from Dubai driver Salem Al Adidi and throttleman Eisa Al Ali took the lead ahead of MISS GEICO and kept it until the end when, in a bizarre turn of events, both MISS GEICO and VICTORY boats rolled over within seconds of each other at the last turn during the final lap, awarding the Australian Team 222 OFFSHORE featuring driver Darren Nicholson and throttleman Giovanni Capitella (who had been in a third place position) the winner of the race. Luckily, nobody got injured.
Also participating in the Class One race were Team SCUDERIA CAZZANI Turbo, with driver Ed Smith and throttleman Serafino Cazzani, and LUCAS OIL Satcom Direct, with driver Jay Johnson and throttleman Nigel Hook.
As the Class One race was being conducted, two Vee Extreme boats were also in the process of racing: KNUCKLEHEAD INSTIGATOR, featuring driver Edward Smith and throttleman Anthony Smith, and HURRICANE OF AWESOMENESS, with driver Brit Lily and throttleman Kevin Smith. INSTIGATOR had been leading the race when the Class One accident occurred.

Apache Powerboat: U.S. Legend


Contact: 1-239-454-1114

Apache® Boats: Mark McManus®, the creator and U.S. legendary boat builder, owner of McManus SuperBoats® and builder of Apache Powerboats®, creates One of a Kind, 100% Kevlar and Carbon fiber powerboats. Designed and finished for the discriminating buyer, his creations have won world and national championship titles.

Mark McManus’ success has allowed him the opportunity to partner with a professional client list which includes:
Mario Andretti, Formula One, Indy Car, World Sportscar & NASCAR Champion.
Roger Penske, owner Penske Racing.
Fred Kiekhaefer, Mercury Marine.
Breitling Watches.
U.S. Customs, George H.W. Bush.
King Hussein bin Talal (Jordan).
King Juan Carlos I of Spain.
Royal Oman Police.
Israeli Special Forces.
Asif Rangoonwala, Powerboat P1 International Racing Organization.
Al Copeland, Founder Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits.

Mark McManus has personally played a significant role in writing powerboat history. He is a respected master in the design and manufacturing of high-performance offshore boats ranging from 20 to 65 feet in length.

Throughout his career he has manufactured in excess of 600 offshore boats. He has been widely recognized by boating industry leaders for his masterful design innovations.

Precise alignment, balance and weight distribution of internal components create a vibration free performance, offering a stable and secure ride while attaining the fastest average speeds.

McManus hulls are known to last 30-plus years — unheard of in a high-performance boat designed for rough offshore seas. The hull lifespan, safety record, and unmatched quality command a higher resale value than any other 40’ high-performance deep-vee in the market today.

Padded dashes with anodized, polished, laser engraved aluminum, centerline steering, staggered engines and theme boats with innovative graphics are all features that McManus developed and introduced into the boat industry. Today, these upgraded features can be found throughout the high-performance boating industry in both recreational and commercial applications.

The engineering specifications of the McManus and Apache® designs are the results of McManus’ vast knowledge and experience of thirty-five years. Using ballistics-grade Kevlar49 and pure 100% carbon fiber to his design specifications, along with hand-laid laminates, and military grade resins, every McManus built boat is precisely constructed to execute solid performance in the most adverse sea conditions.

McManus, along with DuPont and the United States Military, assembled and directed the first team to design and weave a pattern of Kevlar and carbon fiber laminate, a design that has not been duplicated today. This system has been successfully integrated in all of his hull designs to enhance the safety and durability of his high-performance boats.

Mark McManus is also the first manufacturer to offer complete refitting and restoration services for existing powerboat models.

McManus has restored half of the Apache® boats he originally built in the ‘80s and early ‘90s. These were refurbished, not reconstructed, meaning the hulls were still in perfect condition; the new owners were interested in updating the look of the boats.

Every boat is created to the client’s specifications, and each is a showpiece of exquisite quality, power, and offshore performance. Hand-painted artwork, graphics, instrumentation, and cockpit designs are as unique as the owners.

McManus’ powerboats continue to rewrite powerboat history with their fit, finish, and ability to dominate and deliver in offshore waters at excessive speeds. One aspect about our new and refurbished boats: when you see the project; you will remember the boat and its unique features for a long time!
