The attraction consists of four air driven speedboat models controlled by steering wheels. 100-inch projection screens in front of them display gameplay, as well as monitors stationed on the left and right ends of the installation for spectators. Its units share design similarities with the earlier Power Sled simulator.
Players take control of four speedboat models, competing against each other in a race around a simulated coast modelled on the Bay Area. The boats are controlled by steering wheels commonly found in Sega car racing titles of the same era.
Boat Race GP is only known to have been installed in Tokyo Joypolis, operating there from January 1998 to at least mid-2000. It is unlikely that it ever reached any other Sega amusement centres.
