Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) is one of the most important International Boat Shows in the United States.
This year, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the "Yachting Capital of the World" will host the 57th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, scheduled on Nov 3-Nov 7.
The importance of the event is such that many shipyards choose this Boat Show as a showcase for the world launch of the new models. For example, this year will be the occasion to launch the Verve 40, the first weekender made by the Italian Azimut Yachts shipyard, which is among the exhibitors of the fair.
Show exhibits range from yacht builders and designers to exotic cars and brokerage yachts. A wide variety of boats will be on display 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 extraordinary superyachts.
During the fair the Powerboat School puts you at the helm to improve your nautical skills and learning new ones. The classes are for all levels, from absolute beginners to seasoned skippers.
