The 2013 Key West offshore powerboat championships are expected to be one of the most exciting World Championships in the recent past. No class will have an uncontested winner and many classes are brimming with more boat entries per class than any race all season.
The big boats will include multiple turbines, four or more Superboat Unlimiteds, eight or more Superboats and many more in other classes.
If your not familiar with the offshore powerboat scene, let me fill you in? Hull configurations range from 28′ cigarette-style mono hulls in the production classes, all the way up to 50 ft. Catamarans built strictly for racing in the unlimited class. Power plants range from single big blocks in the production class, up to two…three, even four motors in the unlimiteds.
Helicopter Turbine motors are legal in the unlimiteds which can reach speeds over 200 mile-an-hour. If you have never seen these boats run, they literally shack the ground when they go by Truman Annex.
