For the 54th year, Fort Lauderdale hosts the largest in-water boat show in the world. Running from October 31 to November 4, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show attracts hundreds of thousands of yachtsmen, fishermen and marine enthusiasts to its six locations that cover more than three million square feet. This year, Show Management is rolling out new attractions and events, including a special new venue for Yachts International’s Owner’s Pavilion. The Yachts Pavilion is moving to the beautiful SeaFair, a 228-foot custom yacht that houses an art exhibit, fine jewelry, a restaurant and bar, as well as special VIP lounges. It will be located alongside the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel and Marina for easy access to the rest of the show’s highlights.
“We are committed to continuously enhancing the show experience for guests and exhibitors,” said Dane Graziano, senior vice president and COO of Show Management. “This year's new attractions are designed to bring more fun and more choices to all people visiting the show.”
In addition, the Convention Center location will now include a Sailfish Pavilion including a fishing pond and the Miss Geico offshore racing boat. Throughout the show there will also be a personal submarine, a flying car and an exotic auto display.
All attractions and show locations can be easily located through MyBoatShow, the show’s free smartphone app, designed to help navigate the show's docks, land areas and tents.
