Mouthfresh Superboat Class

Mouthfresh Superboats really are the big boys’ toys. There are no engine rules, anything goes and 1000+ horsepower (750 KW+) is the norm in Mouthfresh Superboats. With ‘Big Blocks’ versus ‘Small Blocks’, and Super Chargers and Turbo Chargers also allowed, the Mouthfresh Superboats run on injected Methanol and are guaranteed to provide excitement.

The ‘Big Blocks’ are all over 10,000 cc, with Alloy engines they weigh not much more than the Group B and Stinger Group A’s (around 700 kg), but with power to burn, it takes a brave driver to stand on the gas in a Mouthfresh Superboat.
