Superyachts and a bevy of stupendous, seaworthy yachts and other luxury boats and accessories will highlight the 28th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show later this month. This year’s show runs from March 21—24.

The Fort Mills Times reports that the boat show is both a crowd pleaser and a moneymaker for the state of Florida. The event show brings $91.6 million to various businesses in the state as well as $2.8 million in state excise and sales taxes, according to an economic impact study presented by theMarine Industries Association of Palm Beach County and Show Management.

New attractions at the show this year include a Zeki Swimwear fashion show on Friday and Saturday and live music by the Captain Harry band on the Meyer Amphitheatre stage. Other special events and educational activities include free IGFA School of Sportfishing seminars and youth fishing clinics presented by the non-profit Hook The Future, open to children ages four to 16. The first 50 children to attend will receive a free rod/reel set and a commemorative t-shirt.
