The 28th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show to display + $1 billion worth of yachts, boats & accessories from the world’s leading marine manufacturers.

An economic impact study following the 2012 show, commissioned by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County and Show Management, calculated its economic impact on the State of Florida was $91.6 million, generating $2.8 million in State excise and sales taxes. Beyond South Florida, marine businesses are a major industry nationwide, serving 82 million boaters and accounting for 350,000 jobs throughout the U.S., according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Navigating the 28th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show will be easier than ever before thanks to recent enhancements to the MyBoatShow smartphone app designed to help navigate the show’s docks, land area tents and transportation.

This year’s new attractions include a Zeki Swimwear fashion show on Friday and Saturday at 4:30 p.m. and live musical entertainment by the Captain Harry band on the Meyer Amphitheatre stage. Other special events and educational activities include IGFA School of Sportfishing seminars and youth fishing clinics presented by the non-profit Hook The Future, open to all kids ages four to16.  The first 50 kids will receive a free rod/reel set and a commemorative t-shirt.

From March 21 - 24, 2013, buyers and sellers from around the world gather along the scenic Lake Worth Lagoon overlooking fashionable Palm Beach, where hundreds of boats ranging from small inflatables and center consoles to fishing boats and superyachts over 200 feet are on display. In addition to convenient land access and parking in West Palm Beach within walking distance of the show,  guests also are invited to come by boat and tie up to the free Come-by-Boat docks located south of the in-water displays.
