There’s something awe-inspiring about these yachts shows in recent years, as the yachts and superyachts just seem to get even better each season. With the 2016 shows proving that this industry is as strong as ever, LuxeGetaways took a look back at some of these beautiful options that were represented this year by Burgess, which also proved to be several of the most luxurious yachts seen at the show this year. With the Palm Beach Yacht Show featuring more than $1.2 Billion worth of yachts, boats and accessories this year, this show has become a popular destination for the superyacht owner, buyers and charterers.
