Offshore Powerboating Performance - A New Era!
Facing reality - Change creates Opportunity!
Welcome to the ABPE website - and finding my COVE.
Having idled into the COVE I invite you to drop anchor, relax and peer into the depths of a passion that embraces the marine industry, offshore powerboat performance and observing the natural world - birds in particular. The cove is a place to contemplate how modern engine and fuel technology can be applied in the quest to put these things in harmony. It's a place where I reflect on the fragmentation and decline of 'spirit' in the sport I loved - and to seek solutions. Solution that feed the passion to follow a lifestyle that reflects our true values, delights the senses - and ultimately restores the spirit!
Step ashore at the QUAY to comprehend how real changes can only happen when passion inspires your willingness to engage.
Visit the BOATHOUSE, to appreciate how a love of offshore powerboat performance technology and wildlife can harmonize when ‘clean’ fuel presents superior efficiency, power and economy.
Consider how NATURE can provide all the power we need, as we transcend the shameful history of fossil fuels and welcome the enhanced performance and natural balance of biofuels.
Authentic ‘offshore’ powerboat racing is dormant – but its spirit remains alive in my heart, ready to be put to a noble cause in a technical, environmental and commercial solo venture in a true synergy with nature.
Finally, relax among friends on the BEACH, enjoy the lifestyle and catch up with the scuttlebutt on the BLOG!
A focus of this website is a passion for offshore powerboat performance - it acknowledges the history and spirit of the sport and considers the sad decline as the focus drifted from the original ‘ocean challenge’ concept, toward a ‘speed at all cost’ culture. It considers the issues of an amateur sport in global disarray – in an era where professional motorsports thrive by embracing community and corporate environmental expectations and values. Ultimately the spirit is revitalized within the opportunity to share those new era values and present the spectacular performance of modern marine engine and fuel technology.
Science, Technology & Lifestyle!
The realities of climate change are acknowledged, while illustrating that you, our industry and the spirit of a beautiful sport, can indeed, ‘Do Something’! Change means opportunities, as a new era of powerboat technology is set against the backdrop imagery of beautiful tropical islands - while a compelling ocean-lifestyle demonstrates irrefutable evidence of performance, value and responsibility. A true breath of fresh air capable of reviving a spirit, industry and lifestyle.
