The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, (or FLIBS as it is affectionately called) claims to be the largest boat show in the world: it covers more than 278,000 square metres of space over seven locations. Visitors to the show can expect a selection of the best new superyachts in Fort Lauderdale, numerous luxury yachts for sale and exotic car displays. There are 1,500 boats on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and more than $4 billion worth of boats and kit.
Hosted in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the self-styled “superyacht capital of the world", this show benefits from its beachfront location, offering a laid-back vibe. The superyacht portion of FLIBS has grown in recent years and offers a number of VIP boat show experiences, while the show's selection of super-fast tenders is also exceptional.
