Doors open for FLIBS 2023

By Katie Scott   25 October 2023

Covering seven locations, each with its own unique offering for the show, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) provides the opportunity to learn all there is to know about yacht rentals and how to complete the ultimate superyacht package all under one roof.

Putting on a display of more than 1,300 boats, ranging from speedy tenders and inflatables, to an outstanding fleet of iconic superyachts, sailing yachts, and catamarans, FLIBS has pulled out all the stops to put on a show of shows.

Geared up to welcome in excess of 100,000 visitors throughout the duration of the show, the seven locations including Pier 66, the 17th Street Yacht Basin and the Bahia Mar Yachting Center are all set to provide ample opportunities to explore this year's fleet of attending charter yachts.

Being such a high-profile event, visitors to this year's edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show can expect to see many of the biggest names in the industry including Princess, Westport and some Sunseeker yacht charters

Ready to impress, the Superyacht Village hosts the biggest and most indulgent superyacht charters attending the show this year. Quickly proving itself to be a highly valuable asset to the show following its inaugural appearance in 2019, the Superyacht Village showcases the epitome of the ultimate yachting lifestyle, completing its serenade with a display of exotic cars and exclusive bars and catering.

In addition to the enticing collection of motor yachts around the floating docks, FLIBS is renowned for keeping up the pace around the exhibits with live entertainment throughout plus the exciting Aqua Zone. Continually growing and adapting to the trends of watersports each year, this highly anticipated exhibit covers over 44,000 square feet and never fails to impress and gives all visitors first-hand experiences with the latest water toys and showcases high-flying tricks to show off to other charter guests.
