One of the top five boat shows in the US, the Palm Beach International Boat Show (PBIBS) never fails to attract a discerning crowd of serious shoppers and key industry professionals.

First launched in 1985, PBIBS is now an annual mainstay of the global yachting community, showcasing close to $1.2 billion worth of yachts and marine accessories each year.

Held in March, the four-day event runs during an ideal time of the year weather wise and is the last major show of the international boat show season. Thousands of visitors attend each year, flocking to Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida, to take in the magnificent exhibits.

There is always a spectacular fleet of superyachts for both sale and charter in attendance, while hundreds of other vessels, ranging from 8ft inflatables, powerboats and bowriders to fishing boats, centre consoles and personal watercraft, are also on show.

The Palm Beach Boat Show acquired new owners in March 2017 and is now run by Informa Exhibitions. The London-based company has introduced a number of changes such as new signage, brand new slips and a new ‘VIP Experience’.

VIP pass holders benefit from having access to an exclusive lounge, as well as to a dedicated concierge team. Other highlights include fishing seminars, water sports demonstrations, and floating cocktail lounges offering live entertainment and refreshments.

With thousands of visitors attending the event annually, the Palm Beach Boat Show is a mainstay in the international yachting calendar, and attracts a range of visitors attending via their luxury charter yacht.

The show also provides an amazing opportunity for attendees on a corporate charter looking to network with prospective clients and industry figureheads. 

If you are interested in participating in the upcoming Palm Beach Boat Show, or if you would like to add it into your charter itinerary, please speak with your preferred yacht charter broker.
