Go up the gangway and aboard a cruise ship, yacht, sailboat, or catamaran to see the sites from a whole another viewpoint. Sit back and relax, you’re in the tropics. The waterway vistas, from port or starboard, of Lake Worth Lagoon, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the Atlantic Ocean are breathtaking as well as beautiful.
History of Singer Island:
In 1940, the City of Riviera purchased 1,000 feet of beach on the Island for $40,000. This led to the growth of tourism in Riviera and eventual incorporation of the island north of Palm Beach Shores. In 1941, the city of Riviera changed its name to Riviera Beach.
The Town of Palm Beach Shores was developed in 1947 when A. O. Edwards, a railroad and hotel tycoon, bought 240 acres on Singer Island for $240,000 and invested $500,000 in improvements.
He laid out a city plan with parks, walkways, and roadways (Palm Beach Shores’ northern boundary originally extended 300 ft. north of Blue Heron Boulevard). In 1948 Edwards built the Inlet Court Hotel which was later renamed The Colonnades.A year later the wooden Sherman’s Point Bridge was replaced with a steel and concrete two-lane structure with a drawbridge which permitted passage through the Intracoastal Waterway.
The first Sebring style race was held on the island in 1950 and ended at the Colonnades. Edwards became the Singer Island’s first mayor in 1952. When he died in 1960, his estate sold the Colonnades Hotel to John D. MacArthur in 1963.
