The 2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show is being hailed as a success and a sure sign of a general upswing in the economy. With increased traffic and positive sales results, it appears that people are poised to fully express their passions for yachting.
This year attendance was up at the show, which attracted more than 50,000 people. It covered more space than ever, thanks to the addition of 40 in-water slips at Palm Harbor Marina at the show’s north end.
More than $350 million worth of marine merchandise was on display, and the number of yachts with an LOA greater than 100 feet was up 35 percent from last year, distinguishing this show as one of the top in the country. Sunreef Yachts Charter experts toured many of the most distinguished charter yachts, including DIAMOND GIRL, PRIVATE LIVES, BLIND DATE, took copious notes, interviewed Captains and crews and sampled gourmet cuisine on board.
Although it is difficult to estimate exactly how lucrative the show will ultimately prove to be, many sales brokers claim pending sales and the rumor mill is hinting about the sale of
one megayacht considered to be a real gem. Serious charter inquiries from qualified clients, including well known celebrities spotted on the docks, indicate that the future of the marine industry looks very bright indeed.
