With warm weather in the forecast, a group of high-performance boat owners in the Buffalo, N.Y., got an early start on trick-or-treat with a Halloween Fun Run last weekend.

Image of the Week: The Pure Beauty of DCB's M44 Widebody

Quite a contrast from the over-the-top Spooled Up II—the other DCB Performance Boats M44 Widebody that was delivered last month to the Hargreaves family in Washington following its extensive paintjob handled by Visual Imagination in Missouri—Mike and Kathie Stevenson’s 44-foot catamaran, the second one out of the mold but the first one delivered, is a work of art in its own right. And speedonthewater.com has the exclusive pictures to prove it.

Image Flashback: Performance Boat Center In Paradise

Gathering images for upcoming 2017 Super Boat International Key West Offshore World Championships preview stories, we came across this Pete Boden gem of Performance Boat Center/Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast during a practice session before last year’s three-race event. And from the blue of the water to the green of the palm trees, it reminded us why Key West is—and always will be—the most spectacular venue in offshore powerboat racing.
