By Steph Loseby   27 October 2022

The highly anticipated Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) 2022 has officially begun and, on the ground in Florida, the YachtCharterFleet team is on hand to check out all the action. 

Opening on a gloriously sunny day in Fort Lauderdale, the world's largest in-water boat show has kicked off to a fabulous start.

FLIBS 2022 is running from 26 - 30 October and is definitely set to impress, attracting more than 1,300 boats, ranging from sport fishers, day boats, tenders and inflatables, to an outstanding fleet of shining superyachts, sailing yachts and catamarans.  

Joining the vessels are throngs of industry professionals and boat enthusiasts who have flocked to the Floridian city of Fort Lauderdale for five days of touring yachts, attending seminars and mingling with 100,000+ other show-attendees and prospective buyers who also share a passion for life on the water.

The 63rd Annual Fort Lauderdale Show has begun and with it, brings lots of excitement within the yachting industry

Among the scores of superyachts in attendance is an impressive selection available for luxury charter vacations, all of which YachtCharterFleet will be taking a closer look at during the show.

All the yachts were gleaming in the sunshine as they were cleaned and prepped ready for visitors to inspect on various yacht viewings throughout the day.

As day one of the show progressed, the Superyacht Village was lively with much attention going towards the luxurious selection of superyachts on display.

This exclusive Superyacht Village also allowed YachtCharterFleet to meet with world-renowned yacht builders and designers who were ready to show off their latest projects and interactive exhibits. Models of future launches and concepts are also on display for show attendees to admire, and representatives of shipbuilders are on hand to supply information.

This year also sees the Aqua Zone appearing to be more extravagant than ever seen before, with live demonstrations in the 40,000-gallon pool sparking a lot of interest. 

Located at the Broward County Convention Center, the Aqua Zone covers an area of over 44,000 square feet and displays an abundance of brilliant water sports toys, tenders and other creative marine products and nautical gadgets. Show-goers can even try out the toys themselves allowing them to understand and test them firsthand, with a dedicated professional close by to explain how they work, of course.
