This year visitors soaked up their share of sun and little rain, during the Palm Beach Boat Show.   All in all it was a great show!  Despite the weather Thursday to kickoff the show, Friday through Sunday proved to be spectacular Florida boating days.


The Palm Beach International Boat Show continues to grow in size. Most importantly in appeal, proving that bigger is not always better.  A substantially small show as compared to Miami and Fort Lauderdale.  PBIBS is still ranked in the top 5 of boat shows in the country.  It is quaint and very well attended!  Visitors and exhibitors alike love the show for the charm and ease of participation.


Featuring over $1.2 billion worth of yachts, boats and accessories, the yachting enthusiast had hours of enjoyment perusing around the docks & tents.  They even had the ability to attend seminars from some of the best captains in the industry.


The 230-foot Lurssen “Martha Ann”, was the largest boat on exhibit.  However, size restrictions made for a satellite location at Rybovich Marina a couple miles north.   At $79 Million, she is a beauty!  Featuring a swim up bar, huge gym, cinema theatre and vast outdoor areas, the 7 staterooms can accommodate 18 guests.


Yachting Experts attended with their signature new boat, the 33’ Mag Bay Center Console Yacht/Tender.  We were very excited with the reaction of visitors to the Mag Bay 33.  Moreover, proving what we confidently believed, that she is a perfect Palm Beach Boat.


In attendance for team Mag Bay & Yachting Experts were the De Varona’s, Frank, Betty, Sebastian and even little Zoe.  Greg Morrison, yacht broker and consultant who resides in Palm Beach County and will be the point of contact for our Mag Bay Yachts owners in Palm Beach.   From Mag Bay Yachts, Michael & Patty Howarth, founders of Cabo Yachts and Mag Bay Yachts.


Next years dates have been set, we encourage you to pencil them in.  March 22-25th, 2018. We encourage you to follow to stay up to date on the latest industry events.
