The Model Power Boat Association was founded in 1924 and Incorporated in 1979 as a Limited Company. It is a non-profit making organisation with no share capital. The Association promotes all types of boat modelling activity including RC Boats, Free Running and Static Models, encouraging members to take part in the hobby at all levels and particularly to enter the many competitions which are held throughout the country and overseas.
A particularly important area of this site deals with rules and regulations both statutory and those imposed by the Association, various files are available for download. It should be remembered that if there are any conflicts between section regulations and those of the Association, the Association regulations are aligned with recognised International bodies such as Naviga and iMBRA and adoption of contrary rules may result in ineligibility for national and international competitions.
