Palm Beach International Boat Show

Palm Beach, FL, United States

23 - 26 Mar 2023

By Editorial Team

One of the top five boat 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 close to $1.2 billion worth of yachts and marine accessories each year.

Usually 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.

What to expect

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

Acquired by new owners Informa Exhibitions in 2017, the London-based company introduced a number of changes to the Palm Beach event such as new signage, brand new slips plus a new ‘VIP Experience’.

VIP pass holders benefit from having access to an exclusive lounge and a dedicated concierge team, in addition to other 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 provides an amazing opportunity for attendees on a corporate charter looking to network with prospective clients and industry figureheads.
