Palm Beach International Boat Show
Only 100 kilometers from Miami, to the North from the Bahamas you will find a small cozy town where tens of thousands of yachtsmen, fishermen and simply fans of motorized and sailing vessels gather annually in the end of March.
They are not attracted by huge snow-white beaches of Florida or long and narrow as the river water barrier between Palm Beach and West Palm Beach that will allow even the biggest yacht to pass. They are attracted by a an interesting event. Show as Americans say.
But Palm Beach International Boat Show has not a lot in common with a regular exhibition. Yes, you will have to look around attentively and will not be able to stop for a minute to bypass all the venue which occupies the area of thirty football fields only on the land by the way. Here you will find almost one thousand of different boats: from inflatable boats that are tiny in comparison with the show scale to luxury super yachts.
Palm Beach Boat Show is a festival where the professionals can meet, business sharks can negotiate. It is also a large-scale entertaining platform for you, your wife and children. However, the family can always be sent away to the nearest beach, to the sculpture park of West Palm Beach or to the one of the Florida shopping centers.
In 2015 the festival celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. It is not a lot for the human, but a very mature age for an exhibition. The celebration passed in the regular mode. However, it did not deprive the participants and the audience of festive mood. All the forty thousand people that came here from the 26th to the 29th of March and that increased the population of Palm Beach in almost one and a half times could plunge into the world of voyages, fishing and luxury accessories. More than one thousand boats were presented here in this anniversary year, and that is not the limit.

The venue of a boat festival is traditionally divided into several compartments where yachts, motor, inflatable, fishing boats and accessories are placed. Exhibition stands are located at each platform. If the size allows vehicles are located on the land, if not – on the water. Organizers pay attention to ordinary participants who would like to brag of their «treasures” as yachtsmen are able to exhibit (and meanwhile to moor) their boats at a separate platform.
