Boat Shows

Shows are perhaps the premier staging site for selling and buying boats. Builders from across the country and around the world deliver their best and newest boats, electronic equipment, engines and supplies to a prime location so boaters can see, inspect and perhaps make a deal to buy them. Whether the location is a glamorous site such as Miami Beach or a small, local venue, shows are where builders and consumers connect.

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show spreads across six locations, but the Bahia Mar is the main venue.
