The Yacht & Brokerage Show returns to Collins Avenue Feb. 16-20, presenting yachts and superyachts from numerous international production and custom boat builders. The show is free and open to the public.

As with the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last fall, the show will include Show Management’s new smart phone app, MyBoatShow. The free app, available on iPhone and Android platforms, is designed to help users navigate the show's docks, land areas and tents. Attendees will be able to access show maps and search for exhibitors, manufacturers, product categories, boats by
specifications and size and other helpful information.

Also new to this year's Yacht & Brokerage Show is TrawlerPort. Located at the north end of the show, TrawlerPort will display long-range cruisers in lengths ranging from 35 to 90 feet. Inside, attendees will find the floating Trawler Island, where seminars will be presented on topics that include destination cruising and navigation.

The 27th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show will be held at Evernia Street/Flagler Drive and North Clematis Street/Flagler Drive from March 22-25.

More than $350 million worth of boats, yachts and accessories from marine manufacturers worldwide will be on display.
