The 53rd installment of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show promises to be a huge success. Organisers will spice up the event, boatbuilders are readying their launches for display and owners are dreaming of their next yacht.
A plethora of the year’s most noteworthy launches will be presented, including Delta’s 50 metre Arianna and the first Ocean Alexander 120, built at Christensen. Princess Yachts’ flagship Imperial Princess, its first 40m, will make her US debut, as will Horizon Yachts’ new tri-deck 45 metre.
A military jet fly-over opens the show on VIP day, and a fireworks display will close out Friday night. Lounges and bars will also be kept open an hour after the show closes each day to keep the celebrations going.

Diamonds Are Forever
Sparkle trumps speed in John Staluppi’s latest James Bond-themed yacht. Diamonds Are Forever wowed during her debut in Miami and will flaunt her bejeweled, art deco interior by Evan K Marshall and her striking exterior lines again in Fort Lauderdale. Her split-level VIP suite matches the spaciousness of the master suite, and the dining area on the aft sundeck can convert to a helipad.

Delta Marine 50m
Arianna’s first-time owner was inspired by the birth of his daughter to build a ‘home at sea’ fit for taking his family around the world. The extremely voluminous – 822GT – yacht features an owner’s deck aft of the bridge with a separate children’s room and private lounge and aft deck. Her Polynesian-inspired interior is warm and welcoming.
The first of Princess’ new 40m yachts, Imperial Princess is an impressive debut for this British production builder. The owner of Imperial Princess is a dedicated fan of the marque who was ready to grow in size along with the builder. She is chock full of extras such as folding balconies, a hardtop and high-quality joinery.
