2020 Palm Beach International Boat Show – POSTPONED INDEFINITELY

May 14, 2020 - May 17, 2020

Following Governor Ron DeSantis’ executive order issuing a Stay-At-Home directive through April 30, the 35th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show has been postponed until further notice. Our primary concern continues to be the safety and well-being of our staff, exhibitors, partners, and attendees. We are closely monitoring the latest developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it might further impact our show.

The show date and status – as a result, unfortunately remain fluid under the circumstances. We continue to assess the situation and will provide a detailed update on the show’s status by April 17. We thank you for your patience as we continue to power through these uncharted waters.

The PBIBS features more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts and accessories, including hundreds of boats. In addition to exhibits and the large selection of boats ranging from 8-foot inflatables to super yachts nearly 300 feet in length, the show offers fun and educational activities and seminars. Attendees also enjoy live music and refreshments at the show’s famous floating cocktail lounges. Guests are invited to come by boat and may tie up to free docks located south of the in-water displays.

This year, Wellington Yachts is debuting the new Bruckmann Yachts Abaco 47. Modeled on the success of the Abaco 40’s unique performance and seakeeping characteristics, the Abaco 47 offers a larger platform with more accommodation for extended cruising. Designed by Mark Ellis, the Abaco 47 utilizes the same proven hull form used on the Abaco 40. This innovative hull configuration allows the Abaco 47 to plane at low speeds (12 knots), affording a wide cruising speed range as well as extremely fuel efficient performance. A modern version of a traditional Downeast design, it has a teak swim platform, teak caprails and a teak-and-holly sole. Please let us know if you would like to arrange a private viewing of this very special Model.
