What’s missing at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show?

Yacht captains share their thoughts about what would make the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show better.

  • A place to hide.
  • Captain’s lounge.
  • A tent or location for government information and homeland security rule guidebook for all flagged yachts. This would help captains prepare with state-to-state rules and laws on operation, waste discharge. etc.
  • A write up of “what’s new at the show”.
  • The really big yachts should start anchoring off the beach, and running launch service from the beach near the Bahia Mar footbridge over A1A
  • Parking.
  • More bathrooms and better food.
  • More access to the tech and installation process.
  • Better information on parties and events outside the show well before FLIBS. I travel from the West Coast so I have to plan hotel and flights well in advance.
  • Tickets for family
  • Better safety. If a yacht ever caught on fire, it would be a domino effect of boats burning. Once you are locked in the show, you are trapped. It is not a very safe set up. Add bad shore power to the mix, boats with no crew living on board while plugged into power, and it is just a matter of time.
