The NZPBA is the governing body in New Zealand for circuit power boat racing.

The NZPBA is affiliated to the New Zealand Power Boat Federation Inc. who are in turn affiliated to the world governing body the UIM (Union International Motonautique).

Here in NZ we race many types of craft on oval or triangular left hand turn tracks which range in overall length of between 1 and 2 kilometers. Our courses are on New Zealand’s many inland waterways, lakes, rivers and sheltered harbours.

Circuit racing boats include Hydroplanes, Racing Runabouts, V-Bottoms and Tunnel Boats. They range in size and speed from ten (10) foot long with a top speed of 60 kph boats through to the big GP Hydroplanes that are seven (7) metres in length and capable of speeds of over 250kph.

On this site you will find class descriptions, race team profiles, our race calendar, racing news, classified advertisements, contact details for provincial clubs, drivers clubs and our national executive as well as photo galleries of our current and past racers. There is also a growing page of links to other boat racing sites.
