Held along Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach, the show will showcase some 170 boats, from 8-foot inflatables to superyachts.

“We are so excited for the 40th anniversary of the boat show,” MIAPBC executive director Alyssa Freeman said in a statement. “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 [also] proud of the economic impact this event has in Palm Beach County.”

Show hours are noon to 7 p.m. March 24; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 25 and 26; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 27.

“The show will welcome back fan-favorite exhibits, including the AquaZone, Kids Fishing Clinics by Hook the Future and the Windward VIP Club,” said Andrew Doole, president of U.S. Boat Shows with Informa Markets. “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.”
