Big news announced this week by Super Boat International as they confirm the Key West City Commission has reached a unanimous agreement to keep the Super Boat International World Championships in Key West for a minimum of the next 5 years. 


President of SBI, John Carbonell, recently commented, “The city of Key West has committed to work with us to keep SBI and offshore racing here for at least the next 5 years. The economic impact is very significant for our community here and I’m proud to see how everyone is working together. We are really looking forward to this year’s event in November.” 


This venue has become one of the most infamous racing destinations for the series with race teams and fans from around the world making the trip to take part in the annual SuperBoat World Championships for over 3 decades but as of last year the future of the venue was up in the air but as of earlier this month a final agreement was completed keeping the Worlds in Key West for many years to come.


"If you look at the statistics, there are two large events in Key West, one being the Super Boat World Championship. We bring in, documented, over $30 million from this event, which, if you add in the taxes and revenue that's brought in, it's huge, “ comments Larry Bleil, president of the Conch Republic Powerboat Racing Association.
