Welcome to the website for the New Zealand Power Boat Federation Inc, which was formed in 2002 by a group of power boat racing administrators, representing five codes.

  • The acknowledged National Authority for powerboat racing in New Zealand, which administers the international rules and also allocates and presides over all World Championship events.
  • Recognised by Sport New Zealand ,receiving funding for specific purposes on behalf of its members.
  • Formulated a strategic plan to further its objects in an endeavour to grow the profile, further participation, improve the professionalism and increase publicity of all the member codes.
  • Encourages youth participation.

Power boating is a sport that has a large following of people. As with other forms of motor sport, it is not only the persons racing but a team of many voluntary boat builders, riggers, mechanics, and the usual general helpers and organisers which often include the involvement of partners and family members. Each of the member codes also has dedicated groups of volunteer officials who willingly give their time in the interest of our sport. Our Federation is firmly established and has a very competent executive. We look forward to achieving our goals of further growth and the enhancement of the sport of power boat racing in New Zealand.

APBA Releases 2022 Offshore Racing Schedule

With the Offshore Powerboat Association , Powerboat P1 and Race World Offshore as race-producing member-organizations, the American Power Boat Association had no shortage of offshore races to consider sanctioning this season. That subject was among the topics during the organization’s annual meeting last week in Orlando, Fla., and now the APBA competition schedule for the 2022 season is complete.

The eight-race 2022 American Power Boat Association Offshore National Championship Series kicks off May 21-22 in Cocoa Beach, Fla. Photos by Pete Boden copyright Shoot 2 Thrill Pix .

World titles in the catamaran classes will be decided at November 6-13 event in Key West, Fla.

For the eight national events, the Offshore Powerboat Association will produce the Lake of the Ozarks, St. Clair, Michigan City and Fort Myers Beach contests. The organization also will produce the Englewood Beach world championship event, as well as all the regional races. Powerboat P1 will produce the Cocoa Beach, Sarasota and St. Petersburg events. Race World Offshore will produce the Clearwater contest and weeklong Key West event.

As noted above, Englewood Beach will be the official site of APBA/UIM World Championships for all V-bottom classes. In 2021 the Southwest Florida venue was home to the APBA/UIM Worlds for the Bracket classes.

The adoption of the Mercury Racing 860 engine as a power option for the Super Cat class was not finalized during the APBA meeting—nor was a decision on a drop-race format, a setup in which teams get to drop their worst result in a given race series.

The Spec and Bracket V-bottom classes will vie for world championship honors in Englewood Beach, Fla.

“The meetings went well,” said Rich Luhrs, the chairman of APBA’s Offshore category. “We resolved a number of things. But we still have a lot of work to do before the season begins.”
