If this is your first time attending PBIBS, then we have some tips for you! Things you won’t find on the website. Here’s Yacht Management’s guide for PBIBS first timer’s.

Best 3 Things All First Timer’s Should See

We recommend all first timer’s checking out The Aquazone demonstrations at the amphitheater, the cocktail barges and the superyacht section of the show.

Best Yachts to See

The 2018 Palm Beach International Boat Show is just a few days away and already the West Palm Beach is buzzing about some of the superyachts that will be on display.

The South Florida Business Journal created a full spread article about the Iron Man, a 125-foor 2015 Benetti motor yacht that was created and designed to be as awe inspiring, classy and stylish as the superhero it takes its name from.

The Coral Ocean and the Lady S are just as impressive! Everyone at PBIBS is calling them the “queens” of the show. Fantastic superyachts to see!

But that is just a mere tip of the ice berg. The 2018 Palm Beach International Boat Show will have so much to offer everyone! You can see the full list of boats at PBIBS here.

Best Places to Park

There will be more parking this year than ever before to keep up with the increasing number of attendees.

The best place to park is in one of the three parking garages closest to the “beginning” of the show, near South Flagler Drive. Use the Evernia Garage, Phillips Point Garage or the Espernate Garage, all located on Chase Street. All garages have easy access, less traffic in and out and you won’t have to walk the across town to get to the show!

Best Seminars to Check Out

The IGFA Sportfishing Seminars run from Thursday to Sunday and they are by far one of the most educational and enjoyable seminars.

For families with children, don’t miss the Kid’s Fishing Clinics Saturday & Sunday where free rods and reels will be provided for all participants.
