March 21-25: The Palm Beach International Boat Show

Each year there are tons of international boat shows that take place across the nation. In Florida we have 3 mega boat shows: The Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beach boat shows. Coming to West Palm Beach next week is the Palm Beach International Boat Show and if you haven’t been yet, don’t miss out this year! So far, this event has been one of the top events in south Florida and a top 10 boat show in the nation.┬áThis year is bound to be another top year with over $350 million worth of luxury vessels, cars and equipment.

This fun event is geared for everyone, of all ages and preferences and offers inventory for everyone whether or not you are looking to buy a boat. If you need a boat, want a boat or just want to dream about boats, there is sure to be something for you. Everything from super ships, Cigarette boats, power cats, cruising and sport fishing yachts will be here this year. You can walk the docks or even board the boats, many of which are open to anyone to come aboard, but some of the mega yachts do require appointments to board.

If you are looking for more that just looking at boats there are tons of other things to do. The boat shows prides itself on being a place to have fun and relax! There are several floating Bacardi-rum tents (adults only) where you and your friends can enjoy a tropical drink and dance. Along the waterside are tons of vendors offering tasty meals and drinks like gyros, fish tacos, fresh conch fritters and freshly squeezed lemonade. The boat show is also known for its cars. They always have an incredible display of super cars ranging from Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce and more. This event even has fun activities for the kids like free fishing clinics and demonstrations on safety and boating skills.

The Palm Beach International Boat Show is open from 10am to 7pm and tickets are available at the gate. For more information about this epic event check out the website: 2013 Palm Beach International Boat Show.
