The Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association is a Maryland based group of power 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 numerous activities and events for the whole family throughout the year, some of which to promote worthy causes.

Our rapidly growing membership includes powerboat owners with small runabouts to large yachts. 

Join us at a Monthly Membership Meeting to learn more.  Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30PM, at Libations, 8541 Veterans Highway, Millersville, MD 21108.
