UIM CLASS-1 POWERBOAT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Organised by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi

The championship is an exhilarating and breathtaking spectacle to experience.  Featuring race boats that are 42ft, twin-engined 900hp composite catamaran capable of speeds exceeding 160mph/250kmh and from the 34-foot, 21hp wooden monohulls of the 1950s that average speeds of 20mph.  

                                                         

To sketch a scenario of the race, just imagine:

You are strapped into an enclosed safety cockpit with your partner on the throttle controls and you on the steering wheel
Wrapped around you is five tons of state-of-the-art carbon Kevlar composite powerboat
Behind you twin 900hp engines capable of speeds in excess of 160mph/250kmh
In front of you are spread big unpredictable seas
Either side of you are intimidating boats just inches apart
The flag drops; full throttle – it’s a breathtaking charge to the first turn buoy

…welcome to the unique and exhilarating world of Class 1 …an unrivalled cocktail of world-class racing and entertainment!
