Bringing the past to the present. The American Power Boat Association is over 100 years-old meaning that there are tens of tens-of-thousands of retired race boats across the country. Through the Vintage and Historic category, these boats have a time to shine again. While vintage boats don’t actually race, they do but on one heck of a show. These boats are either completely original, fully restored, or a total replica of a former boat and they do not disappoint. Vintage and Historic boats can consistently put up speeds that impress even the most seasoned of boat racers, these boats are always a crowd favorite.
