Thumbs up Big Big News For Historic Race Boats

HORBA, The Historic Offshore Race Boat Association, has been invited to bring some historic offshore race boats to be shown at the Amelia Island Concours d' Elegance next March 2007.

Amelia Island has been one of the top Concours in the nation over the past 10 years, right up there with Pebble Beach. This invitation to HORBA, shows that the old offshore race boats are now being considered to be of the same potential quality and investment grade, that the older sports cars are.

We will be sharing the same space with the likes of historic race cars such as Ferraris, Porsches, BMWs and Corvettes. This will mark the first time that any major auto show has included offshore race boats in their display.
