While all APBA race boats hydroplane with a pocket of air underneath them, Superlight Tunnel Boats (SLT) are actually filled with air. SLT rules require that two people man this inflatable vessel at all times. This is the perfect category to get some quality bonding time with someone close. A driver and rider keep these boats hovering perfectly over the surface of the water. Easily affordable, SLT boats are some of the most cost efficient out on the race course today. SLT boats can soar at upwards of 50 mph while turning heads with the consistently tight races and close finishes.
