When walking the docks of the boat show, you can’t miss the bright pastel colors of Palm Yachts, the latest venture from Palm Beach Lately and Yachts Lately. Palm Yachts provides a unique experience for boaters with a custom-built 17’ Palm 17 hull and the fully restored center console Boston Whalers equipped with cabana-striped Bimini tops. 

Both of these boats include brand new  2023  90hp Suzuki outboard engines, fusion stereo, two Yeti coolers, and more as part of the purchase. These colorful and exclusive picnic boats are perfect for a variety of activities such as anchoring at the sand bar, island hopping with friends or taking a sunset cruise.

FOIL is taking watersports to a whole new level. FOIL is the original flying stoke machine with a top speed of 33 mph and a max ride time of 180 minutes. This one-of-a-kind board has a direct drive meaning the motor delivers 9hp with no gearboxes or maintenance - just rinse it when you’re done. 

At 5'8, the FOIL board is an ideal size for new riders, making it easier for them to learn the ropes. For an added boost of confidence and accelerated learning, pair the board with the 250HA wing. FOIL has created their boards to be upgradable, with no built-in electronics, antennas, or water tubes. You can easily switch to a smaller size board whenever you feel comfortable doing so. All you need is a single connection from the battery to the motor.

Docktail Bar
