The 27th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show will transform downtown West Pam Beach into a dazzling showcase of the boating lifestyle. One of the top ten boat shows in the nation, the show features more than $350 million worth of boats, yachts and accessories from the world’s leading marine manufacturers.
The spectacular yachting event takes place March 22 through March 25, 2012, along scenic Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach and will feature hundreds of boats ranging from small inflatables and center consoles to fishing boats and superyachts up o 200 feet.
Many of the superyachts on display at the show are available for charter. Here are some of our favorites:
DIAMOND GIRL is a striking superyacht; sweeping curvilinear glass adds boldness to the bright white of her stacked decks. This imposing luxury charter yacht is as powerful as she appears, equipped with twin MTU 16V2000 engines DIAMOND GIRL cruises comfortably at 19 knots, making her an ideal charter yacht for island hopping through the spectacular waters of the Bahamas or the Caribbean.
GIGI is a luxury charter yacht with delightful decor guests will find elegant yet whimsical and easily inaugurates the spirit of fun. GIGI, a Hargrave 97, is an excellent option for charter families with children, yet is equally ideal for a romantic celebration or a group of friends. GIGI is available for charters in Florida and the spectacular islands of the Bahamas.
SOVEREIGN is a luxury motor yacht that may have been launched in 1993, but by all accounts she has an ageless beauty. Meticulous maintenance and a recent complete refit contribute to her continuing popularity, and on this elegant charter vessel the reputation of the outstanding crew also plays a role in attracting numerous repeat clients.
MISS ROSE has an especially exquisite layout for charter clients, offering great flexiblity with two Master Staterooms, one at the aft of the upper deck with whirlpool bath, shower and his and hers sinks, office and doors leading to the upper deck and the second on the main deck with his and hers ensuite bathrooms with conjoining shower and large walk in wardrobe.
In addition to the wide selection of watercraft, marine accessories, refreshments and live musical entertainment, the show offers special events and fun and educational activities for boaters of all ages. The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) School of Sportfishing presents “mini-sessions” with some of the area’s best captains and professional anglers who will share sportfishing’s hottest tips and tricks.
