IYC to present 11 yachts at Palm Beach International Boat Show

The IYC 2018 events calendar is off to a busy start and the next major boat show in the lineup is the Palm Beach International Boat Show, held from 22 – 25 March 2018 on West Palm Beach, Florida. One of the USA’s top five boat shows, with more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts on display, it is a must-do show for all serious buyers in the North American region. IYC will be presenting an impressive fleet of 11 yachts [click here for full details] including 54m (164’) Silver Lining, the biggest yacht on display at the show. Additional yachts will also be available to view at the nearby Rybovich marina, including the unique SWATH superyacht 41m (134’6’’) M/Y Silver Cloud. The show is held in close proximity to the newly opened IYC Palm Beach office, with Palm Beach a key hub in the IYC global network.

The Palm Beach International Boat Show has built a large and loyal following thanks to the huge range of boats and boating equipment on display and its appeal to all ages.Palm Beach has quickly achieved the status of being the finest yacht showcase in the United States and this status is due to the high quality of yachts presented, from superb megayachts to the finest in more personal boats and all their related equipment,” says James Wallace, Sales and Charter Consultant. “The yachts are further enhanced by the locale since the show is located in Lake Worth along the totally revitalized downtown of West Palm Beach with the beauty of Palm Beach as a backdrop.” Timingwise, it builds on the momentum of a successful Miami Boat Show in February. “The Palm Beach show follows shortly after the recent Miami International Boat Show and is an excellent show that many people that cannot make the Miami show will attend,” says Michael Rafferty, Sales and Charter Consultant.

An added bonus of the show for IYC clients is its close proximity to the new IYC Palm Beach office, which opened in late 2017. “One of the more exciting aspects of the Palm Beach boat show is the announcement of our new Palm Beach office; we are thrilled to be within walking distance of the boat show,” says Bob O’Brien, Sales and Charter Consultant “This office is comprised of some of the finest and most experienced sales and charter brokers in the business,” adds Wallace. “All our brokers are globally experienced and ready to assist clients with the yachts suiting their specific requirements, and we are looking forward to meeting clients at the show and helping them with all their yachting needs.”

IYC’s show fleet will be incredibly varied, with several styles of yachts being presented. “The interesting aspect of the IYC display is the diversity of product, including the largest Christensen yacht ever constructed, some wonderful pedigree fast trawlers, sportfishing boats, classic yachts, sailboats and charter yachts,” says O’Brien. In as-new condition, following her launch in 2017, Silver Lining will be sure to be a particular crowd pleaser as both the biggest and one of the newest superyachts at the show.
