March 17 marks the start of the four-day, 31st annual Palm Beach International Boat Show – one of the top five boat shows in the country. Attendees will be able to view more than $1.2 billion worth of boats, yachts and marine accessories. The event will include a wide range of boats from 8 foot inflatables, power boats, fishing boats, center consoles, bow riders and personal watercraft to yachts and superyachts upward of 150’. There is something for everyone at the Palm Beach International Boat Show including the finest brokerage yachts, tents full of the latest technology and gear, seminars and fishing clinics for the kids as well as exotic cards and live music. Natuical Ventures will bring back the AquaZone this year, a 15,00 gallon freshwater pool featuring live kayak, stand up paddleboard and other water toy demonstrations.
Although the show has been in existence for quite some time, it never really gained much attnetion until 1996 when it was taken over by Show Management. The company out of Fort Lauderdale who also orchestrates the largest boat show in the world, The Fort Lauderdale International Boat show, saw West Palm Beach as an ideal location. The perfect pairing of the finest boats and yachts with the attraction of vibrant Clematis Street makes for a fantastic atmosphere.
