Russian-owned superyachts have reportedly been barred from the upcoming Palm Beach International Boat Show following the Ukrainian invasion.

Organizers of the annual event, which showcases some of the world’s most luxurious yachts, say it Palm Beach Daily News that no Russian-owned yachts will be on the list.

“The Palm Beach International Boat Show stands firmly with the people of Ukraine and all those who champion progress toward peace,” the band told the newspaper.

It was not immediately clear who owned Russian-linked yachts that would have been dropped from the lineup.

Scheduled for Thursday, March 24 through Sunday, March 27, the 40th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show takes place at 101 S. Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, directly across the Intracoastal Waterway from the island of Palm Beach. The event features more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts and accessories, with hundreds of boats, ranging from 8ft inflatables to superyachts spanning nearly 300ft in length – but none of them won’t be Russian.
