Viewed from a helicopter, offshore powerboat racing, particularly in the waters off Key West, Fla., is nothing short of spectacular. The latest teaser for the upcoming three-part NBC Sports television program on the 2016 Super Boat International Offshore World Championships provides proof positive of that as the entire 40-second video focuses on STIHL catching and passing Cleveland Construction. (Diehard Skater Powerboats fans won’t have to pick a side as both cats are Skater 388s powered by Sterling Performance engines.)
