The 61st annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The world’s largest in-water boat show with an audience of 110,000 at seven locations with 3 million square feet of display from megayachts to accessories. This year includes more than 1,500 boats on display and about 1,200 exhibitors with goods valued at more than $4 billion.

Six miles of floating docks hug Bahia Mar Yachting Center, Hall of Fame Marina, Las Olas Marina, Hilton Marina, Pier 66 Marina (North and South), and the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. Shuttles and water transportation connect the sites.

A new Superyacht Village debuted at Pier South last year, site of the former Sails Marina. The 3.5 acre site included a new dedicated marina featuring vessels up to 400 feet as well as an on-land exhibition space by renowned shipyards and yacht toys, including helicopters, personal submarines, and exotic and collectible automotive.

Additionally, the Windward VIP Club moved to an in-water location anchored in the heart of the show on the main dock at Bahia Mar. Presented by Delta Private Jets, the Official Private Jet Carrier of FLIBS, in partnership with Ulysse Nardin, the Official Timekeeper of FLIBS, the new in-water VIP experience will feature an arched tent with outdoor terraces for shore and water views as well as a luxury premium open bar and gourmet food offerings, and a cigar lounge presented by Delta Private Jets, providing a unique setting to enjoy the excitement of this international boating spectacular. Tickets are $300 and include show entry, access to the Club, food and premium beverages, as well as a Water Taxi.

Prime time (Wednesday, Oct. 28) preview tickets are $53, a two-day ticket (valid Thursday-Sunday) is $59 and general admission tickets are $34 per day for adults, $15 for children ages 6-15.
