The 25th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show

Don't miss the show that speaks softly but carries big boats.


There are a couple of ways to view the Palm Beach International Boat Show. It is smaller and less flashy than it's bigger brothers the Miami International Boat Show and Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. But it is still one of the top ten boat shows in the country, with more than $350 million worth of yachts and marine product on display. There are hundreds of boats, from 8 foot inflatables to superyachts over 150-feet. And there are the plenty of seminars including Kids' Fishing Clinics and Xtreme Sport Fishing Seminars. In short, it's big enough to be interesting and small enough to be manageable. So if you missed Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, this is a great show to attend.

The venues are twofold: the in water portion is on the Intracoastal Waterway along Flagler Drive, and Clematis Street will host the other displays and exhibits.

Tickets are available at the box offices at the North Clematis Street entrance and the Evernia Street entrance. Admission for adults is $14. Children ages 6-15 pay $5 and kids under 6 attend for free. The show begins Thursday, March 25 and is open from noon to 7 p.m. On Friday the 26th and Saturday the 27th, hours are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday the 28th the show runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. More information is available at
