The event includes hundreds of boats from 8 foot inflatables, power boats, fishing boats, center consoles, bow riders, personal watercraft to superyachts over 150’. Opening day is Thursday, March 22 from noon- 7pm. Mark Bononi, MGH’s Yacht Division Director, will be in attendance on Thursday.

On Saturday and Sunday The Kids' Fishing Clinics, presented by Hook the Future, are open to all kids ages 4-16 and feature marine life experts teaching kids basic fishing techniques. Upon completion of all four learning stations, participating kids receive a FREE rod reel. The hands on interactive instruction will include: casting a rod and reel, how to fight a fish, selecting tackle and lures and fishing ethics.  

Registration begins at 10am Saturday & Sunday. Kids ages 4-16 must be registered and accompanied by a paid parent or guardian. But if all that isn't enough, there are at least nine more reasons to attend the Palm Beach Boat show this year: the IGFA School of Sportfishing will be hosting fourteen seminars on site with some of the area's best captains and professional anglers throughout the boat show. Now, while checking out the latest gadget or considering a new skiff, anglers will also be able to pick up hot tips and tricks from not just one or two, but nine of the most experienced fishermen on the water.  All of the sessions are free with paid admission.
