International Outboard Grand Prix

Our Mission

To be the premier promoter for World Class Professional Powerboat Racing and Waterfront Music Festivals throughout the Americas.

Community Involvement

IOGP partners on a local level with a non-profits active in the community. This brings in volunteers locally to assist with the event. It also gives back to the community in the form of cash percentages and public relations for everyone.

Environmentally Friendly

Both X-Boat and F1 ChampBoat series are some of the cleanest racing opportunities in the world. The new generation engines are up to 400% cleaner than the old engine technology. Bank erosion is minimal as the specialized boats hydroplane across the surface of the water during races creating little to no wake.


Mike Schriefer (ChampBoat) produced five successful F1 ChampBoat championship seasons with 32 events and 28 TV broadcasts throughout North America for the F1 ChampBoat Series. Past experience also includes over 20 years experience in producing premier motorsports fan engagement events which included over 250 event tours and 15 automotive brands.
