Shining an international spotlight on the Deep Impact Custom Boat brand will give boating devotees a taste of what these luxurious center console boats have to offer. The custom, one-of-a-kind boats are designed and built by Miami boat builder Eugenio Uriarte, whose extreme attention to detail results in boats with a fit and finish that are simply unforgettable.

Boats Direct USA owners Mark and Eileen Fischer acquired Deep Impact in August 2014 and have worked hard to make an outstanding boat brand even better!

“Deep Impact Custom Boats is the most exclusive brand sold by Boats Direct USA because it combines extreme luxury with extreme performance and unsurpassed quality,” said Boats Direct USA owner Mark Fischer, a powerboat enthusiast himself. “These boats are an amazing combination of creature comforts and extreme fishability.”

Sports Radio 1600 WKWF is once again doing the play-by-play with voice of Superboat International Stan Lane on the air. Lopez will do the halftime reports, including in-depth breakdowns about what happened in each race and interviews with the drivers and throttlemen.

The annual powerboat races are always a thrill, but the crowds they draw are what keeps Key West’s economy pumping.

“The economic impact is tremendous for the City of Key West. It’s all week long and it’s amazing,” Lopez said. “It’s truly a fun event. Everyone wants to race here. It’s going to be a GREAT time.”

“One of the big draws is that these boats are so big and fast. Plus the powerboating setup in Key West is the best setup in the world,” Lopez said. “When they come around the final run, the boats are only 20 to 30 yards away. Some of the boats go as fast as 100 mph and you’ve got to be really careful because water conditions can be uncertain.  These guys really move!”

Boating enthusiasts who attend the races will see everything from V-bottoms and catamaran types to Cigarette boat type hulls.“They are all detailed so they are flashy, bright and colorful,” Lopez said. “It’s really like candy for the eyes.”
