Palm Beach International Boat Show

Palm Beach, FL, United States

By Editorial Team

One of the top yacht shows in the US, the Palm Beach International Boat Show (PBIBS) mixes a boutique feel with some serious yachting collateral, including an ever-more impressive superyacht line-up.

Launched in 1985, PBIBS is now an annual mainstay of the global yachting community, showcasing more than 800 boats and a grand selection of marine accessories at each event.

Usually held in March, the four-day event runs during an ideal time of the year weather-wise and is the last major yacht show of the international boat show season. Over 55,000 visitors attend each year, flocking to Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida, to take in the magnificent exhibits.

Owned by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County and produced by Informa Markets, the USA-based event offers a complete yachting lifestyle package with show highlights including fishing seminars, water sports demonstrations, plus floating cocktail lounges with live entertainment and refreshments.

With thousands of visitors attending the event annually, the Palm Beach Boat Show also provides an amazing opportunity for charter guests on a corporate charter looking to network with prospective clients and industry figureheads.
