Chances are, you’re not shopping for an offshore raceboat. If the go-fast boating world is small, the offshore powerboat-racing segment of it is tiny. So the raceboat-buying pool is shallow. No matter how much you love the sport, that’s reality—not good, not bad, only a fact.
But—just for fun—let’s say you are in the market for an offshore raceboat. Based on the current offerings on the market from Super Boat International’s Superboat and Stock classes, you couldn’t be looking at a better time.
Take the “old” WHM Motorsports 40-foot Skater catamaran, for example. Oh wait, somebody—former well-known boat dealer Randy Hartman—just did. That’s the word from Bill Mauff, the former owner of the boat.
“I let it go cheap because I want to see it on the racecourse,” said Mauff, who added that he isn’t sure who Hartman has lined up as a potential buyer. “I think we won four world championships in that boat.”
