35th Annual World Championship
of Super Boat Races
November 6 – 13, 2016 - 12:00 AM
There is no sporting event any more exciting than the Super Boat International World Championships. Key West is once again the host city for this exhilarating boat race, now celebrating its 35th year. This offshore powerboat racing event attracts the most competitive racing teams in the world. The race course, on the Gulf side of the island, is 6 miles of fury, as super boats reach top speeds as high as 180mph.
The fun kicks off on November 8th with the opening of the Racing Village and the 4pm Boat Parade down Duval Street. Contact our concierge for assistance in purchasing VIP Tickets for the exclusive Welcome Party for the U.S. and International Teams held on Monday the 9th. Then get ready for some of the biggest and baddest action on the water you’ve ever seen, when on November 11th the first of three days of high-speed, high-excitement racing begins in this world-famous Key West boat race.
After an adrenaline-charged day at the races, you’ll want to retire to the serene and peaceful paradise of The Inn at Key West. A cool swim in our freshwater pool and a sumptuous meal of our delicious island cuisine will have you feeling recharged and ready for the next day at the races!
