Crowned as one of the top five boat shows in the country featuring more than $1.2 billion worth of boats, yachts and accessories from the world’s leading marine manufacturers in 2014, the 29th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show should be marked on your calendar. Each year this highly anticipated marine event in South Florida displays an impressive fleet of vessels from 8-foot inflatables to 200-foot superyachts, with all the toys, cruisers and serious fishing machines in between. This year the four-day event is held March 20-23 on scenic Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach and is sure to impress any mariner not only due to the displays and products, but also because of the manageable venue and intimate feel of the locale.
Park just steps from the entrances or tie up free at the come-by-boat docks located south of the in-water displays. The show is owned and sponsored by Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, and it is produced and managed by Show Management.

As always, the Palm Beach International Boat Show offers live musical entertainment, educational activities—such as the IGFA School of Sportfishing seminars and youth fishing clinics offered by Hook the Future—and other special events, including swimwear fashion shows.Christine Carpenter, Flagler Drive, Hook the Future, ICW, IGFA School of Sportfishing, Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, MyBoatShow, Palm Beach International Boat Show, Rocco's Tacos, Show Management, Southern Boating, Tequila Bar
