Florida Keys Super Boat International Offshore Races

Marathon Super Boat International Offshore Races

2015 Super Boat International has added Marathon, in the Florida Keys to their race schedule on Fourth of July weekend, 2015. July 3rd – 5th, SBI and Conch Republic Offshore Powerboat Racing Association will keep the tradition of racing on 4th of July and bring racing back to Marathon, Florida, where Superboats raced for years under and along the famous 7-Mile Bridge.

Marathon has seen a revitalization of hotels, restaurants and 5 start resorts in recent years. The remodeled Faro Blanco Resort and Yacht Club (Hyatt Place), scheduled to open this December will be the host hotel for the Super Boat Offshore Race. The new Hyatt Place, local hotels and city officials in the area are excited about Super Boat returning to the Florida Keys.

On Saturday, July 4th, off Sombrero Beach Road (MM 50) in Marathon, race fans will be witness to one of the largest and longest running fireworks displays in Florida and the Southeast. Randy Mearns, SBI Course Marshall, has produced the show for 35 years and comments, “it will likely be one the longest fireworks displays that people will experience.” The upbeat, extravagant show is well orchestrated, synced to music and the fireworks display will last for 45 minutes.

Save the Date: July 3 - 5
Location: Sombrero Beach Road (MM 50)
