Key West World Championships

The Super Boat International World Championships is an exciting annual event that brings the world’s top offshore boat racers to Key West. Every fall, the beautiful water off of the coast of Key West is a proving ground where professional boat racers push the limits. With three days of racing and seven full days of events, the Key West World Championships is a fun time to be on our special island. 

Celebrate Boating with Fun Key West Parties and Exciting Races

The Key West World Championships isn’t just for racers. It’s also a place for fans to get up close with the action and see these amazing power boats first hand. This great event is full of fun parties and parades. At the annual Duval Street Party, boats are on display for the public to see. One section of the course runs right through Key West Harbor. The smooth water allows racers to reach speeds above 140 mph. And spectators with private boats can enjoy the races from out on the water.
