The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is the biggest superyacht show in the US, both in terms of its importance in the calendar and its 280,000 square-metre site. A strong market has lured plenty of other European builders – and their yachts – over the Atlantic, and there are plenty of home-grown boats to contend with.
The largest yachts are on display at Sails Marina, while the main throng is packed around Bahia Mar Yachting Center on the oceanfront. The scale of this show means you get everything from the very biggest pleasure boats afloat to outfits that teach you to free-dive or use your drone.
