An inflatable powered boats race - a cup of "Power & Sail Boats" magazine - was held on 8-th of July, in a harbor of St. Petersburg Fair Center. The race, being usually a part of the St. Petersburg Boat Show, is quite popular among marine leisure lovers (possible customers) and marine professionals, from all over Russia. Both of them are interested to evaluate features of different boats in the difficult race conditions.

The race was held among inflatable boats with outboard motors in the following classes:


  • below 175 ρμ3
  • below 250 ρμ3
  • below 300 ρμ3
  • below 400 ρμ3
  • below 500 ρμ3
  • over 500 ρμ3

Boats of almost all trade marks, represented on the Russian market, participated in the race. Outboard engines of all manufacturers were used.

Only serial outboards were used, without any enforcement.

Most of the participants were using RIB boats, specially prepared for the race, fitted with the engine remote control. Our team, differently from the most, was using regular YAMARAN™ boats with soft (disassembleable) floor, equipped with YAMAHA engines with manual control. The latter means that the boats we used for the race were exactly the same to boats we deliver to customers all over Russia. A 10% time handicup was used for boats with soft floor in the race.

Our YAMARAN team racers Alexander Smirnov and Andrey Geraschenko totally win 1 first place, 3 second places and 1 third place in different classes. All this wins leads to a second consequent year team victory, awarded with the "Power & Sail Boats" cup. This victory, being one in the honorable range, once again proved highest reputation of YAMAHA outboard engines and YAMARAN™ boats - the best products for marine work and leisure
.

Engines and boats for the race were provided by YAMAHA-CENTER on PETROGRADSKAYA SIDE - member of PETROSET group, official dealer of YAMAHA and YAMARAN™ in St. Petersburg.
