The Hydroplane & Raceboat Museum

The Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum is the nation’s only public museum dedicated solely to powerboat racing. Formed in 1983, the museum features a collection of vintage hydroplanes spanning seven decades, including boats that have won 17 Gold Cups. It is also the nation’s primary resource for historical and educational information on hydroplane racing. Its extensive collection of books, magazines, race programs, newspaper, photos, trophies, and other memorabilia dates back to the turn of the last century. It boasts over 200 hours of rare, vintage racing films transferred to videotape, covering hydroplane racing for the 1940s to the present. In addition to archives on the history of hydroplanes, the museum is also a fully equipped boat restoration shop.
