The Palm Beach International Boat Show is set to take place March 17 through March 20, 2016.  Downtown West Palm Beach will transform into a multi-million dollar presentation of yachts, boats and accessories.  Hundreds of boats will be on display ranging from small inflatables, tenders, center consoles and sport fisherman to super yachts.  The show will feature a wide array of the latest marine technology, accessories and products. 

The Palm Beach International Boat Show will have more space for super yachts.  Debuting this year is an additional in-water space at the show's northern end inside Palm Harbor Marina, which will offer more slips for yachts up to 280 feet.  There also will be a new valet parking service at the show's northern entrance for people to more easily access some of the biggest yachts on display.

Other show offerings include CruiserPort, an area that displays long-range cruisers and trawlers ranging from 35 to 90 feet long. It also offers educational seminars to long-term cruising enthusiasts.  Returning this year will be AquaZone, a 15,000-gallon, freshwater pool with live kayak, stand-up-paddleboard and other water toy demonstrations; the IGFA School of Sportfishing seminars; and youth fishing clinics presented by Hook The Future.
