What To Expect At The Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show

This November 3-7, Ft. Lauderdale will host its 57th  “Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.” This location only makes sense to do so since Ft.

The show will be the perfect time for you if you have an affinity for boats of all sizes, speeds for luxury or sport.  You can expect to see, and in some cases get the opportunity to go on board and experience the runabouts, sportfishers, high performance boats, center consoles, cabin cruisers, flat boats, skiffs, express cruisers, sailing yachts, motor yachts, bow riders, catamarans, ski boats, jet boats, trawlers, inflatables, canoes and extraordinary superyachts.

Another added bonus to attending the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show is the chance to brush up on your boating skills as well as learn new techniques and tips. Hosted by Carefree Boat Club, The Powerboat School is a great opportunity to learn for the industry’s top professional on a variety of boats that may have been a dream of yours to drive. The Powerboat School experience allows you to be truly immersive and welcomes all levels.

If you care to attend the show while having the opportunity to network with people at a meet- and – greet, sip on premium drinks from the open bar and eat gourmet food the VIP Experience at the Windward Club is spot for you.
