A boat owner, boat lover or just want to ogle some high-end floating vessels? Palm Beach has you covered with their 32nd Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show premiering this weekend. Now through Sunday, March 26th you can browse $1.2 billion dollars worth of boats, yachts, and boating accessories at 100 Evernia Street, West Palm Beach. The show extends from South Flagler Drive and Trinity Place to North Flagler Drive and Banyan Boulevard. 

At the 32nd Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show, you do more than keenly observe many of the world's finest marine vessels. The Carefree Boat Club offers Hands On Boat Handling Classes throughout the weekend. Learn from the experts, take the class yourself, or register your kids! All sessions are taught by USCG licensed captains who are both professional and certified. You can choose basic or advanced skill classes depending on your level of knowledge.

You'll be able to wet your whistle with Touch Vodka as a sponsor. They'll be on hand with their tasty and smooth handcrafted vodka, often called a liquid aphrodisiac! 

Basic docking skills, open water boat handling, and powerboating are just a few of the lessons Carefree Boat Club will be sharing with their students this weekend! Take a look at the seminars and classes offered to improve and enhance your nautical skills. 

In addition to captivating seminars and hands-on classes, the 32nd Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show has special events planned for the duration of the weekend. FREE Kids Fishing Clinics will be offered on both Saturday and Sunday, giving the kiddos a chance to learn fishing techniques from marine professionals. 

Aquazone is also back, thanks to Nautical Ventures. All-day demos of paddle boarding, hovercraft, Hobie kayaks and more will take place in the pool, providing insider tips and tricks for these radically fun aquatic sports.

If you're inclined to a glass of vino, you'll get your chance to indulge with another sponsor, SCAVI & RAY Winery, the umbrella brand for Italian premium wines that are typified by elegant design and outstanding grape quality. 

The 32nd Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show runs Thursday, March 23 through Sunday, March 26. You don't want to miss it, boat show experiences are enjoyable!  You walk around, board boats, check out the amenities, sip on your beer, peruse the beachy clothing, jewelry and more.  When we go we always come home with some cool new device or useful item like spectacular sunglasses! At the show, you learn much, and can concretely discuss options with an expert.  Investing in a boat is a big decision, so rather than traipsing to dealers all across the state, come to the show where everyone is under one roof! Always fun and easily affordable admission is $22 for adults and $12 for kids 5-12. Children under 6 are free.

You can purchase your tickets online or buy at the gate - VIP passes are available for exclusive entry to the show as well as access to the AIM Hospitality Pavilion.
