As with every provider, the Parallels provider has a custom box format.

The actual list of official boxes provided by Parallels is available on wiki page.

All boxes from Parallels could be found on the "parallels" page on Vagrant Cloud . You can also create and share your own customized boxes there. Read more on the Vagrant Cloud documentation page.
