If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, then head down to Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach for The Palm Beach International Boat Show. This weekend marks the 30th anniversary of the show and is expected to bring in more than 1000 boats and multi-million dollar yachts from around the world.
Show goers can walk alongside more than $1.2 billion in mega yachts at downtown West Palm Beach. While the most expensive yachts require an appointment with an agent to board, many of the other boats are boardable, and just about every yacht, boat, and dinghy is for sale.
This year is expected to the biggest year yet for the Palm Beach International Boat Show as a $375 million waterway development is underway in nearby Riviera Beach. The new Riviera Beach Marina will be built in phases over the next ten years. Along with ample docking slips, the marina - across the intercoastal from popular Peanut Island - will feature restaurants, retail shops, a promenade and over 400 residences.
Even if you're not looking to buy a boat this weekend, there's still tons to do down at the show. Boat show vendors have decked out their booths selling everything and anything aquatic.
The Palm Beach International Boat Show runs through Sunday and is expected to bring out more than 40,000 people during its four days. After buying a boat at the show, talk to local Lantana Insurance Agency B & B Insurance to discover your best boat insurance coverage.
