The 40th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show is headed for South Florida Thursday, March 24 through Sunday, March 27 along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, directly across the Intracoastal Waterway from Palm Beach Island.
After an incredible year for the boating and marine industry, this year’s show will be integral in providing visitors, exhibitors, and the community with an unforgettable event, including hundreds of boats ranging from 8-foot inflatables to superyachts nearly 300 feet in length. From the Windward VIP Experience to the AquaZone, activations will cater to all ages and adventure-seeking lifestyles.
Among the in-water exhibitors: Mystic Powerboats (displaying its M4200 center console and C4000 catamaran models), and Fountain Powerboats (displaying its 32CC, 34CC and 38CC center consoles).
“We are delighted to be returning to Palm Beach for the 40th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show,” says Andrew Doole, president of U.S. Boat Shows with producer Informa Markets. “The show will welcome back fan-favorite exhibits including the AquaZone, Kids’ Fishing Clinics by Hook the Future, and the Windward VIP Club. We are also excited to announce that this year’s boat show will coincide with the Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Art Fair, giving guests a well-rounded weekend of luxury and lifestyle opportunities.”
“We are so excited for the 40th anniversary of the boat show,” adds Alyssa Freeman, Executive Director of the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County. “Last year’s show was such a breath of fresh air for the entire community and marine industry, so we are looking forward to an even bigger and better show this year. We are proud of the economic impact this event has in Palm Beach County and are proud to give back to the various initiatives and organizations supported by the MIAPBC.”
