The world’s largest in-water boat show in the world is making a return to Fort Lauderdale, Florida this autumn, marking the 60th anniversary of the event.
Running from October 30 until November 3, the show is held along almost a full mile of the Intracoastal Waterway and six miles of floating docks. With more than 1,500 boats on display, it’s an essential event in the yachting calendar. Around 85,000 visitors will attend, ferried around the show by water taxis, tenders and shuttle buses.
FLIBS exhibits superyachts and yachts of all sizes for both brokerage and charter, as well as tenders, sports fishers, cars, luxury goods and marine accessories. The show was founded in 1959 by Floridian manufacturers and dealers looking for the best way to sell and exhibit yachts, and the first show featured just 13 boats.
Burgess will once again have a huge presence, with stands at Bahia Mar and the new Superyacht Village and we are excited to announce the first yachts confirmed in our display fleet.
To find out more about Burgess’ yachts for sale and charter, please contact a Burgess broker. Alternatively, get in touch with one of our offices directly: London, Monaco, New York, Miami, Singapore or all other locations.
