Wake Zone—Towed Water Sports Showcase
If you like to make waves, these are the boats for you! Learn about water sports such as wakeboarding, wake surfing and water skiing and see boats designed to offer thrills on the water.
The eight-time World Champion Miss GEICO Racing Team is proud to introduce the latest Miss GEICO offshore racing boat.
The new Miss GEICO is a 50-ft. long catamaran made of carbon/Kevlar. At approximately 12,000 pounds, she is almost 1,500 pounds lighter than her predecessor. She has a wider beam which will allow her to ride smoother at faster rates of speed.
Propelled by piston-powered engines generating 1800 horsepower per side, she currently has a top speed of 180mph. Off season plans include increasing the RPM speed to enable Miss GEICO to reach a top speed in excess of 200 mph!

Fishing remains the most popular activity among American boaters, with more than six out of 10 enjoying a little fishing while boating!
