FLIBS 2020 is making a return to Fort Lauderdale for the boat show's 61st edition, showcasing another fine fleet of yachts and a variety of boats across seven show locations in the so-called 'Yachting Capital of the World'.

Renowned as the world's largest in-water boat show, the 2020 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) will be back this year between October - November 2020.

Over 1,500 vessels will be on display across seven show locations, with boats ranging from shiny superyachts to sleek pleasure cruisers lined up along the six miles of floating dock.

The boat show also boasts 3 million square feet of exhibition space- the equivalent of 50 football fields- and will present around 1,200 exhibitors from the marine and luxury lifestyle sectors to ensure there is plenty to see both on land and on the water.

All the show locations at FLIBS 2020:

  • Bahia Mar Yachting Center
  • Hall of Fame Marina
  • Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center /Sailfish Pavilion
  • Pier 66 Marina
  • Las Olas Marina
  • SuperYacht Village at Pier 66 South
  • Fort Lauderdale Hilton Marina

A water taxi is on hand to transport you between show locations at FLIBS 2020. To access the Superyacht Village, take the yellow water taxi from the Bahia Mar Yachting Center; the pick-up point can be found at the Sanlorenzo stand. 

The Superyacht Village

The FLIBS Superyacht Village was a huge hit at last year's yacht show, and it will be back again in 2020 to show off another stunning selection of superyachts.  The new feature aims to accommodate a growing number of superyachts at FLIBS and has the capacity to berth yachts measuring up to 400ft (121 metres).

The superyachts on display here will be some of the stars of the show- but alongside the boats on the water, the on-land exhibition space is a great setting for networking and soaking up the boat show ambience.

Over 1,500 vessels will be on display across seven show locations, with boats ranging from shiny superyachts to sleek pleasure cruisers.

Exhibitors will include Lurssen, Feadship and Oceanco, with representatives on hand to advise clients and discuss their latest projects; many of which will be on display as full-scale custom models for attendees to admire.

The venue will play host to a range of luxury retailers and a dedicated lounge and restaurant zone. It will also be the backdrop to the FLIBS Yacht Chef Competition, which will see a number of yacht chefs battle it out to be crowned with the prestigious Wine Enthusiasts' Award by an expert panel of judges.

While this is the only the second time the FLIBS Yacht Chef Contest will be hosted at the boat show, it is quickly becoming a popular component of the social scene and is not to be missed at FLIBS.

If you are considering attending FLIBS 2020, you should get in touch with a yacht charter broker. They will be able to help you get the most out of your experience and ensure you are able to enjoy a smooth and seamless yacht show.
