The European superyacht show season ends with Monaco Yacht Show, after which the industry focus shifts across the Atlantic to Fort Lauderdale in South Florida. The first of the winter superyacht shows, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is the world’s largest in-water show with around 1,500 yachts for sale and charter afloat in Fort Lauderdale’s waterways and marinas.

Burgess will be there at this, the 59th FLIBS, and we invite you to visit our stand on Bahia Mar Facedock, where our team of superyacht specialists will be happy to share their market insights and arrange fast-track viewings of any charter yachts that excite your interest.

VIP service
Burgess will arrange your private airport pick-up and hotel/show drop-off, subject to availability. Speak to the team for arrangements.

Meet us on the stand
We would be delighted to welcome you both to the show and to our stand, where we can answer any charter questions you have over a glass of wine, a beer or soft drinks.

All in one place
The show covers more than 3,000,000sqft, nearly 280,000sqm, across seven locations all linked by a fleet of land and water shuttles. Whatever you’re looking for, your Burgess broker will help you find it. Maybe you want a personal tour of our yachts if you're thinking about a charter? Do you want to find out what’s new in tenders and toys? Whatever it is, we’ll help you to find it in Fort Lauderdale.

The Burgess charter line-up by location

Bahia Mar Facedock

Built by the world renowned Oceanco yard, LAZY Z underwent a substantial refit in 2015 that brought the yacht up to date mechanically and also incorporated modifications that greatly improve her interior and deck arrangements. Her interior is light and welcoming with detailed finishing throughout and large interior spaces allow for plenty of room to relax and entertain in comfort. The generous main deck master suite features a raised lounge with 180-degree views, and the gym and media room are unique for a yacht of her size. Her outdoor spaces are perfectly suited to hosting events, dining, or lying out in the sun. All of these unique features and spaces are part of the reason LAZY Z has been an incredibly successful charter yacht.

Sails Marina (Pier 66 South)

Built for a yachting connoisseur, EXCELLENCE V distils many years of experience into a masterful design. In building this Reymond Langton-designed yacht, the renowned German yard of Abeking & Rasmussen seamlessly achieved a number of key features.
