The 31st annual Palm Beach International Boat Show, which expanded to include 30 slips that will accommodate yachts as large as 280 feet, is scheduled for March 17-20 along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, Fla.

The international event will feature more than $1 billion worth of yachts, boats and accessories from leading marine manufacturers, including hundreds of boats ranging from superyachts nearing 300 feet to small inflatables and other tenders, center consoles and sportfishers.

Continuing on its path of steady growth, the show once again has expanded to include a new pier at the northern end of the show, within Palm Harbor Marina.

The new in-water space will add 30 slips accommodating yachts as large as 280 feet. Additionally, show organizers have added new valet parking service to the show's northern entrance, offering guests easy access to some of the largest yachts on display.

"This show has become known as the place where a yacht owner or buyer can quickly fly into town, come to the show and compare an amazing selection of superyachts side by side. There are very few places in the world where this is possible," said Andrew Doole, executive vice president and COO of Show Management, the company that manages and produces the show, in a statement.

Trade Only Today and Show Management are part of Active Interest Media.

“The show's ease of access and walkability, along with some great local attractions, make this a highly desirable yacht-shopping destination,” Doole said.
