Palm Beach International Boat Show displays more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts and accessories in a spectacularly beautiful location, the West Palm Beach waterfront. Buyers and sellers from around the world gather along this scenic stretch of Lake Worth Lagoon. Across the Intracoastal Waterway, the storied mansions of Palm Beach Island beckon.
Palm Beach International Boat Show entrance gates are located at Lakeview Avenue, Evernia Street, Clematis Street and Banyan Boulevard. Come enjoy an array of yachts, boats and accessories in a gorgeous setting.
Palm Beach International Boat Show 2017 offers a spectacular array of new and pre-owned yachts from the world’s most prestigious builders including Amels, Feadship, Heesen, Moonen and Palumbo. To accommodate the number of superyachts larger than 200 feet at this year’s event, a satellite location will be held at Rybovich. Private water tenders will transport interested buyers and charter clients to and from the additional show locale to the north.
“Exhibitors are reaching a different and very sought-after buyer at the Palm Beach show,” said Andrew Doole, senior vice president and COO of Show Management, show producer. “Palm Beach attracts an affluent audience of boat and yacht owners who typically do not visit the shows in Fort Lauderdale or Miami Beach. Palm Beach is their show of choice. The show is exceptional in terms of the number of large yacht sales transactions and charter bookings that take place during the show.”
In addition to convenient land access and parking in West Palm Beach within walking distance of the show, guests also are invited to come by boat and tie up to the free Come-by-Boat docks located south of the in-water displays. Navigating the annual Palm Beach International Boat Show will be easier than ever before thanks to recent enhancements to the MyBoatShow app designed to help navigate the show’s docks, land area tents and transportation.
