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.

More than 1,500 boats were on display.
