Two of Hervey Bay’s leading charter boat operators have just the ticket for adrenaline junkies – front row seats in the middle of the action of the Australian Offshore Superboat Championship on Sunday, November 10.

Freedom Charters and the Spirit of Hervey Bay are offering exclusive access inside the race precinct providing guests with thrilling 360° views of the most powerful racing boats on the planet putting it all on the line to see who will be crowned Australia’s best.

“It will certainly be a thrilling experience for guests sitting right in the middle of the course with the Superboats screaming around them,’’ Bobbie said.

“Watching from the shoreline is one thing, but this will be a completely different experience offering 360° views from three levels and placing you right in the heart of the action,’’ she said.

Fans can catch the Australian Offshore Superboat Championships aboard luxury vessel Spirit of Hervey Bay packages including morning tea, buffet lunch and live coverage of the race telecast to an on-board TV screen.
