After feedback from the inaugural gathering of multihulled vessels at Pier 66 during last year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Catamaran Cove returns this year with a wide variety of catamarans from many of the industry’s leading builders.

Included among about 20 catamarans set to be on display at the Nov. 3-7 57th edition of the largest in-water boat show in the world are Lagoon, Gunboat, Horizon, Leopard and Hudson, among others, both sail and power, ranging from 35 to 75 feet.

“Our goal with Catamaran Cove is to develop it into the largest catamaran show in the world, taking place each year during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show,” Show Management consumer marketing vice president Brett Keating said in a statement.

Show Management, which has produced FLIBS since 1976, and Trade Only Today are part of Active Interest Media.
