Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, held annually in the fall, is the largest in-water boat show in the world. It covers six locations and more than 3 million square feet of space. The boats and other vessels on display include runabouts, sportfishers, high-performance boats, center consoles, cabin and express cruisers, sailing yachts, motoryachts, catamarans, trawlers and extraordinary superyachts.

A banner year for new models

The Fort Lauderdale show’s statistics boggle the mind — more than 1,500 boats covering 100 brands with a combined estimated value of $4 billion.

Some boat companies split their fleets. Smaller boats go to the convention center, and the big models are berthed at the Bahia Mar.

$100M a day in direct sales
