Berri Hotel Speedboat Spectacular 2016

Berri Hotel is proud to again be major sponsor of the Speedboat Spectacular 2016. This January brings drivers from the USA as they compete head to head with the Australians in a battle for the Blown Boat World Cup.

The event offers two full days of racing, 22nd – 24th January, all culminating in the Berri Hotel King of the River.

Spectators are welcome to come and watch the speedboats practice on the River on the Friday afternoon with scrutineering & practice starting from 1:00pm.

There will then be a street parade along Vaughan terrace leading to a meet & greet outside the Berri Hotel, followed by a welcome dinner. This is your chance to see the boats up close, between 5:30pm till 6:30pm.

Both days offer action packed programs with 20 races on the Saturday and 22 races on the Sunday with local, interstate & international participants thundering through the mighty Murray.

Come and witness thunder on the Murray as boats reach speeds in excess of 200 kilometres per hour, the sound and speeds will blow your mind.  The magnificent World Cup trophy will be presented riverside and the King of The River trophy will be presented at the Berri Hotel presentation event after the races.
