The fifth annual Palm Beach Marine Flea Market and Outdoor Boat Show will be held Feb. 28-March 2 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Although boats are the show’s main attraction, the grounds also will feature marine accessories, including hardware, electronics, nautical hardware, fishing equipment, clothing, shoes and nautical gifts.

The boat and vehicle auction on March 2 is one of the show’s highlights, with Internet and live bidding offered on more than 100 boat repossessions, short sales, dealer trades and private liquidations.

The auction preview is all day Friday and Saturday; the auction itself starts at 11 a.m. Sunday.

As many as 10,000 enthusiasts have attended past editions of the three-day event.

Owners and dealers can also preregister to buy or sell a boat.
