The 26th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show is hitting shores this weekend, March 24 to 27, 2011. This is one of the top 10 boat shows in the country, showcasing more than $350 million worth of boats, yachts and accessories from the world’s leading marine manufacturers. It is a treasure trove for the boating enthusiast with nearly everything necessary—from the latest in electronics and satellites to nautical fashion and luxury décor—to outfit your vessel.
The show is located along the waterfront on Flagler Drive, with merchandise tents at Clematis Street and Evernia Street. Dry land and water displays will exhibit boats for sale with numerous accessories, such as water purifiers and engines.
