The 2017 Adani Bowen Offshore Superboats
The boats are back! For the fourth consecutive year, Bowen will host a round of the Australian Offshore Superboat Championships.
Each year the Bowen Superboats shines a spotlight on Edgecumbe Bay, the Bowen Marina and Foreshore area. It is the largest on-water event in Bowen, and is free for the community to attend. 10 boats will compete and reach speeds of in excess of 200 km/hr. The teams bring with them a cast of hundreds – from pit crews to family and friends and loyal supporters – all with a need for speed and all keen to soak up the best the region has to offer.
The 2017 Adani Bowen Offshore Superboats is hosted by Bowen Tourism & Business and the Offshore Superboat Championships Australia, and is proudly supported by Adani, Tourism Whitsundays, the Whitsunday Regional Council and S&W Crane.
We’ve got something for everybody this year, from family fun activities, something just for the kids, and even some EXTREME Experiences for all you thrill seekers out there! North Queensland Bulk Ports invite you to spectate from the Bowen Jetty with your hosts the Bowen PCYC (gold coin entry). Take the kids for a tour on the Tug Boats with thanks to Bowen Towage, and watch out for the water cannon! Airlie Amusements will have some bouncing and sliding fun to keep the kids entertained, or why not go for a Helicopter Joy Flight with GSL Aviation or a Jet Pack Flight with Jet Pack Events! Don’t forget to try out a SEGWAY with Whitsunday SEGWAY Tours and for those of you who are feeling very adventurous, why not book a mental fighter pilot experience with CQ Adventure Flights after watching their awesome aerobatic displays, or even jump out of a plane with Airlie Beach Skydivers!
Pre-book your Adventure Flight, Sky Dive, SEWAY Tour, Jet Pack Experience or Helicopter Ride, or go and see our Event Operators over the weekend!
The Bowen Offshore Superboats is a free community event. Without our sponsors, this event would simply not be possible.

We would also like to recognise and thank Tourism Whitsundays and the Whitsunday Regional Council along with S&W Crane Hire for your ongoing support, it is very much appreciated and thank you for your commitment to supporting our regions development.
