Brace yourself Fort Lauderdale, fall season is upon us which can only mean one thing: it’s boat show season!

Fort Lauderdale, celebrated as the “Yachting Capitol of the World”, will host the 57th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Taking place at 7 different locations and showing off the most lavish yachts on the planet, this world-renowned event is one of the hottest tickets in town!

Displaying more than $4 BILLION worth of luxury superyachts, this event will be spread across over 3 million square feet, running from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. for four days. The final day of the event will end at 5 p.m.

Attendees can look forward to admiring a variety of different boats, including runabouts, sportfishers, high performance boats, center consoles, cabin cruisers, flats boats, skiffs, express cruisers, sailing yachts, motor yachts, bowriders, catamarans, ski boats, jet boats, trawlers, inflatables, canoes, and of course, the most impressive superyachts in the world.

This year, boat show attendees can delight their taste buds with food and beverage options from Great Performances, a New York City-based catering company that will showcase 4 food concepts: The Market Place (custom salads), Sandwich Shop (hot-pressed sandwiches), Off The Dock (lobster rolls, fish and chips, fried shrimp, and more), and Buenos Aires (croissants, baguette, and light Italian sandwiches). Local restaurants such as The Knife Steakhouse, Latin Café, Puntino Pizza, and Sushi Maki will also have concession stands at the event, and food trucks will serve delicious eats from Killer Melts, Moty’s Grill, and Health Nut on Wheels.

Other enjoyable activities taking place at the boat show are marine art and jewelry exhibits, a floating cocktail lounge, live music, and adult and children’s fishing clinics.
