The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show kicks off today under very different circumstances than last year’s 60th Anniversary that generated $1.3 billion in economic output throughout the state of Florida, according to Marine Industries Association of South Florida and Informa.
The five-day event — slated for Oct. 28-Nov. 1 — will move forward with Informa Markets’ comprehensive AllSecure health and safety standards in place that prioritizes the safety of all attendees, exhibitors, crew members and staff.
Face masks will be required for all exhibitors and attendees of the show, and FLIBS has issued “Know Before You Go” videos for more details on what to expect at the show.
Even as some manufacturers have decided to skip this year’s event, a significant number of boats will be making their debuts at FLIBS.
Debuts include a 95-foot flagship from Pearl Yachts, Pursuit’s S 428, Azimut Yachts’ Magellano 25 Metri, Monte Carlo Yachts 76 Skylounge, Prestige X70, Solace Boats 41CS, plus several models from Beneteau, Viking 54 Convertible and more.
Trade Only Today will report daily from the show, with stories in the daily e-newsletter, at Twitter and on our Facebook page
