Yacht crew and brokers were on hand to show nearly 80 visitors onboard yachts for sale during the Broker Day Open House at Lauderdale Marine Center on Jan. 9. Crewed yachts included Motoryachts Horizon II, Sotavento, Seaquest, and Acala in the Fort Lauderdale event.

The third such event included about 30 yachts up to 145 feet in length with several foreign-flagged vessels available to U.S. buyers in the marina’s Foreign Trade Zone. Three more shows are being scheduled for this year.
