Furthering its support of the sport of powerboat racing, global logistics provider Peters & May has been chosen as the official logistics provider of the American Power Boat Association (APBA). According to a press release, both the Peters & May Racing division and the APBA hope to continue to grow the sport on a global level.
“The dedication that Peters & May Racing has shown to powerboat racing over the last four years is truly remarkable,” said Dan Wiener, APBA’s executive director. “It’s clear to see that Dave Holley and his team only want the best for our sport and we are very excited to be joining forces to help accomplish our goal of continued growth.”
Over the years, Peters & May Racing has supported boats and teams at many levels such as the Unlimited hydroplane U-11 Miss Peters & May, the E-55 Inboard 5-litre, two international 0350s and the world champion F1 H2O Qatar Team, to name just a few. Peters & May Racing also helps ship numerous boats overseas, including all of the H1 Unlimited hydroplanes for the Orxy Cup UIM World Championship in Qatar.
“Boat racing has always been in my blood,” said Holley, CEO of Peters & May. “For me, I would like to see the sport continue to grow, especially when it’s in hard times. I have seen so many companies take money out of the sport and put nothing back in. It just frustrates me. By supporting the sport we not only get the satisfaction of seeing our teams succeed in their goals but we also generate additional business, which allows us to increase the next year’s commitment.”
To help give back, Peters & May Racing will be offering discounted prices to all APBA members who need to have boats or equipment shipped globally. Peters & May Racing can ship any type of boat as well as propellers, engines and other equipment.
As a global operation, with offices all over the world, Peters & May is equally excited to be chosen as the official logistics provider of the APBA.
“We’ve seen changes in the APBA over the last couple of years that we think are for the good,” Holley said. “The sport is changing its mentality and we are delighted to be onboard to try and drive that as well.”
