The boats are back! For the fifth 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. Upwards of 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 2018 Adani Bowen Offshore Superboats is hosted by Bowen Tourism & Business and the Offshore Superboat Championships Australia, and is proudly supported by Adani,  the Whitsunday Regional Council and S&W Crane.
