WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The 29th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show is sure to draw large crowds in West Palm Beach beginning Thursday though the weekend.

Hundreds of boats, ranging from small inflatables to super yachts over 200 feet in length, will all be on display (click for full list).

Tickets to the show are $18 at the gate for adults, or you can buy online for $16. Tickets at $8 for children ages 6-15. Children five and under get in for free. Tickets at the gate can only be bought with crash. ATMs will be on site.

The show also boasts more than $1.3 billion worth of yachts, boats, and boat accessories from the world's leading marine manufacturers.

The boat show has grown from showcasing around 200 boats in the 1990s to more than 600 boats this weekend.

Tight Security

West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio says security will be tighter compared to years past.

All bags will be searched at the gate. Backpacks, coolers, and large bags will not be allowed in. The mayor says purses are allowed and larger bags, like baby bags, are also OK.
