Building on the momentum of continued growth, the Palm Beach International Boat Show has earned recognition by many renowned European shipyards for the special audience it attracts to one of the world’s most popular destinations for the global elite. Among the prestigious builders joining the roster of exhibitors at the 2017 event are Amels, Feadship, Heesen, Moonen and Palumbo.
“Exhibitors are reaching a different and very sought-after buyer at the Palm Beach show,” said Andrew Doole, senior vice president and COO of Show Management, the company that manages and produces the show. “Palm Beach attracts an affluent audience of boat and yacht owners who typically do not visit the shows in Fort Lauderdale or Miami Beach. Palm Beach is their show of choice. The Palm Beach show is exceptional in terms of the number of large yacht sales transactions and charter bookings that take place during the show.”
To accommodate the number of superyachts larger than 200 feet at this year’s event, a satellite location will be held at Rybovich. Private water tenders will transport interested buyers and charter clients to and from the additional show locale to the north.
