The Superyacht Show is set to expand after organisers announced plans for a new edition in Palm Beach.
The Palm Beach Superyacht Show is scheduled to take place from March 25-29, 2020 and will be attended by “an exceptional selection of the finest superyachts” from the East Coast of the US, LYBRA said.
The Palm Beach version will build on the existing show, which will continue to run at Barcelona’s Port Vell.
The Palm Beach Superyacht Show has been organised in collaboration with Rybovich Marina in West Palm Beach, which will host the "exclusive and private" event.
The show will offer buyers, charterers and their brokers and representatives the opportunity to visit superyachts in an "exclusive and private" setting.
The displayed superyachts will be accompanied by a select number of new designs and innovations from the major shipyards.
Speaking about the Palm Beach show, LYBRA president and chief executive of Fraser, Raphael Sauleau, said: “This event is a completely different concept from anything currently in the market-place. We will simply have a line-up of top-quality yachts available for private viewings.”
There will be “no crowds, no queues and no trade stands,” he promised, “just a relaxed, elegant and enjoyable experience for all.”
The news comes after Sauleau hinted about the possibility of launching an additional Superyacht Show to serve the Asian or US markets in May this year.
The Palm Beach Superyacht Show will be supported by The Superyacht Builders’ Association (SYBAss) and The Superyacht Life Foundation, as well as the MYBA.
