One of the country’s top five boat shows, the Palm Beach show features hundreds of boats, ranging from from 8-foot inflatables, fishing boats and bowriders to superyachts larger than 200 feet.

In addition to an expansive display of yachts, boats and accessories, the show features educational activities and special events, such as swimwear fashion shows, International Game Fish Association School of Sportfishing seminars and youth fishing clinics presented by the non-profit group Hook the Future.

Parking is 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 show is owned and sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County Inc. It is managed and produced by Show Management, which is owned by Active Interest Media, the company that owns Soundings Trade Only.

Sponsors include Lincoln, Budweiser, Gosling’s Rum, Yachts International Magazine, the Palm Beach Post, Palm Harbor Marina, BoatQuest.com, Smallwoods Yachtwear, the IGFA School of Sportfishing, Hook the Future and Geico.
