The superyachts to see at the new FLIBS 2019 Superyacht Village

By Katia Damborsky   30 October 2019

Brand new for 2019, FLIBS has unveiled a Superyacht Village at Pier 66 Hotel & Marina. We've rounded up all the superyachts to see if you're heading to the new location, which is easily accessed via water taxi. 

Located adjacent to the Seventeeth Street Causeway Bridge on the Stranahan River, the new Superyacht Village is one of the most exciting additions to FLIBS 2019.

The waterfront location has the capacity to host superyachts of up to 400ft (121m) and will be split between the water and a dedicated on-land exhibition space, covering a total of 3.5 acres. 

How do I get to the Superyacht Village at FLIBS 2019?

To get to the Superyacht Village at FLIBS 2019, take a water taxi from the main show at Bahia Mar to Pier 66. The pick-up point can be found just before the Sanlorenzo stand. Take the yellow water taxi and the third stop is Pier 66, which is where the Superyacht Village is located. The water taxi journey takes around 10 minutes. 

Around 20 yachts are expected to be on display at the Superyacht Village and its immediate vicinity. We've compiled a round-up of all the must-see yachts at the Superyacht Village at FLIBS 2019.
