West Michigan Offshore
Founded in 2015, the West Michigan Offshore (WMO) powerboat club is one of the largest and fastest growing clubs in the country, and is for anyone who enjoys high performance boating. Our members own big cats, small v-bottoms and everything in between. Many of them aren't boaters at all, but simply like the offshore world. WMO seeks to bring West Michigan's countless go-fast enthusiasts together both on and off the water, and most of our members boat out of Grand Haven, Holland, Muskegon, Saugatuck, South Haven, and Saint Joseph.
WMO hosts many events throughout the entire calendar year, which in 2018 includes a significant presence at the Grand Rapids Boat Show, a charity golf outing, the Muskegon Powerboat Weekend, a fun run featuring Pete Boden of Shoot 2 Thrill Pix in a helicopter, and much more. WMO's events are highly-organized and first class, and are inclusive to all boaters.
Membership, while required for participation in all club events, is affordable for all boaters.
Incorporated as a 501c(7) non-profit organization, our primary goal is to give as much as possible to charity, while providing members with connections in the industry; organizing, facilitating, and supporting powerboat related events, as well as providing the tools to best promote powerboating in our area. The WMO board is held completely by volunteers, donating their time and resources to further powerboating in West Michigan. There are no paid positions; only the necessary infrastructure intended to protect members and board members of WMO alike. We're just as dedicated to improving the community as we are to powerboating, and take pride in our positive presence in West Michigan.
