If you are near Boca Raton, Riviera Beach, or Lake Worth and are thinking about boats then maybe you should be gearing up for the two-day 10th Annual Florida Fall Boat Show at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach September 14th-15th, 2019. The show hours are set from 9 AM to 6 PM. You might want to bring the whole gang because this extravaganza combines four shows into one. Attendees can also spend the night at the Best Western at Palm Beach Lakes, which is offering a discounted rate during the festivities.
While it’s fun visiting websites or looking at glossy brochures for watercraft, nothing beats checking out the real thing at the Boat Show, so come on over to 9067 Southern Boulevard, in West Palm Beach. Among the delights on display are aluminum fishing boats, bass boats, center console boats, deck boats, kayaks, pontoon boats, personal watercraft, surf & ski boats, and wakeboard boats.
You’ll be able to see, hear, touch, and, in many cases, board the latest offerings. Show Director and CEO Larry Burdgick promises, “We have some of the best boat dealers as well as manufacturers and marine-related vendors lined up for the show.” Among the dealers confirmed for the show are Boat Kings of Pompano, who not only sell new and pre-owned boats but also offer services like detailing, boat-bottom painting, and outboard repairs. Also on board is Nautical Ventures, the marine superstore that also offers new and pre-owned tenders.
Nautical experts will be on hand to answer your questions and demonstrate essential features. Watch out for pre-season discounts and one-of-a-kind incentives just for the show. Fall is an excellent time to buy before the backlog of orders fronts the summer boating season. You’ll discover bargains that you won’t find at any other time of year and with faster delivery.
Marine Flea Market
Maybe you’ve already got a reliable boat or want to deck out one that you’ve found at the show. Then make your way to the Flea Market at the Expo Center. You’ll explore over 300 commercial displays showing anchor lines, bikini tops, boat covers, dock lines, fenders, fishing rods and reels, tackles and lures, gauges, halyards, kneeboards, ladders, life vests, mooring whips and bases, scissors, seats, sheetlines, wakeboards, wake surfers, water skis, and other goodies.
Discounts will be plentiful as vendors offer special show pricing, especially if you’re willing to take stock with you instead of having it delivered to your place in Stuart, Greenacres, Ft. Pierce, Delray Beach, or Jupiter.
Bring your appetite to celebrate the delicious delights of the BBQ Festival. Be prepared to partake of meat prepared in scrumptious ways right before your eyes and accompanied by all the fixings. You’ll also find seafood vendors satisfying you with conch, crab, fish, lobster, and shrimp.
Marine Art Festival
After you’ve decided on something for the water, bring something beautiful into your home in Palm Beach Gardens from the Marine and Tropical Art Festival and Craft Show. You’ll find artisans displaying and selling works in acrylic painting, clothing, furniture, jewelry, leatherwork, metalwork, oil painting, photography, pottery, quilting, serigraphy, watercolor, and wood carving.
