Our beautiful downtown Waterfront will be the host to the 30th edition of the worldwide acclaimed Palm Beach International Boat. The second of a series of Boat shows that happen throughout Florida in different months of each year (Miami, Sarasota, Panama City and Fort Lauderdale), the Palm Beach edition is somehow a peculiar one that is attached to the long history of the Palm Beaches as a luxury yachting destination.
The 2015 Palm Beach International Boat Show is set to take place in downtown West Palm Beach from March 26 to March 29. Happening along Flagler drive, overlooking posh Palm Beach Island, the yachting lifestyle event will attract buyers and sellers from around the world. This event has gained notoriety as one of the most significant international yacht shows and a world-class event featuring more than $1 billion worth of yachts, boats and accessories from the world’s leading marine manufacturers, including hundreds of boats ranging from small inflatables and center consoles to fishing boats and superyachts over 200 feet.[quote_left]”The setting for this event could not be more suitable to the circumstances”.

The West Palm Beach Waterfront offers a newly redesigned entourage, the city’s most precious asset with gorgeous views of luxurious residences, highrises, lively green grounds, floating docks and a wonderful marina, connecting the Downtown to the Waterfront in a unique dynamic concept where people will find themselves in the most convenient possible way enjoying what local merchants have to offer.
New at the 30th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show
Several additions to this year’s show promise to bring even more fun and excitement for the watersport and outdoor enthusiasts that the show attracts. The Blue Wild will feature scuba, freediving, lobstering and safety seminars and a beautiful selection of marine art from world-renowned marine artists. The AquaZone will feature live paddleboard, kayak and stand-up-paddleboard yoga demonstrations in a 15,000 gallon freshwater pool.
Other activities for adults and children of all ages include swimwear fashion shows, the IGFA School of Sportfishing seminars, and youth fishing clinics presented by Hook The Future. Parking will be conveniently located within walking distance of the show. Guests also are invited to come by boat and tie up to free Come-by-Boat docks located south of the in-water displays.
The Palm Beach International Boat show serves as the annual anchor event for the thriving Palm Beach County marine industry. According to a 2014 recreational marine industry economic impact study, Palm Beach County’s marine industry had an estimated impact of more than $1.8 billion in gross output including $682 million in wages and earnings and an associated 18,220 jobs, up from 8,931 jobs in 2010. In 2013, Palm Beach County had 36,852 registered boats.
