About Us

Join or Renew

The Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association is a Maryland based group of boat owners who share in their love for the Chesapeake Bay waterways. We are a Not For Profit organization with more than 3,500 website members. The CBPBA holds many activities and enjoyable events for the whole family, some of which to promote worthy causes. Our rapidly growing membership includes powerboat owners with small runabouts to large yachts. We typically have something going on just about every month of the year, but most of our activities during the Maryland boating season.

We care about the Chesapeake Bay, and we care about boating safety.  CBPBA Directors and member volunteers often work closely with the Coast Guard, Natural Resources Police, manufacturers, and boating industry reps to help collect scientific data on noise, speed, navigational obstructions and other pertinent info to help protect the bay, and boaters. We are also often asked to provide expert testimony on power boat issues at regulatory hearings and workshops.

Over 80 percent of all boats registered on the Bay are powerboats. Until 1986 when the CBPBA was founded, there was no organized group dedicated solely to representing the needs of power boaters. Join with other local power boaters interested in having fun, protecting their rights and promoting safe & responsible boating on our Bay waters.
