From yacht builders and designers to exotic cars and brokerage yachts, this show has something for everyone! CovetED is pleased to let you know all about the event and the yachts and curated pieces debuting this year’s event.
Representing the only major maritime event to take place in the United States since April, the 61st Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) is arriving at the “World Yacht Capital”, with changes for a better and safer event experience.
Produced by Informa Markets and owned by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, FLIBS presents the largest exhibition of boats and new models and the latest in marine technology and accessories.
The five-day open-air show spans nearly 90 acres in multiple locations and will reveal more than 20 of the year’s most anticipated firsts, ranging from luxury yachts and motor yachts to sport fish, centre consoles and express cruisers.
With 360,000 m² of space and fewer participants expected than in previous years, the show will be able to spread visitors so that no area is overloaded.
The food areas will not have self-service buffets as in previous years. Instead, guests will be able to purchase pre-packaged meals.

Large Fleet Of New Yachts Set To Debut At Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show October 28-November 1
With customer demand for new yachts of all sizes at an all-time high and nearly every yacht show in the world is being forced to cancel due to Covid19 safety concerns, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show that’s due to take place from October 28-November 1 has ended up being one of the only ways potential buyers can see a wide variety of yachts in one easy location in person this year. Meanwhile, show organizers have worked hard to ensure everyone’s safety by implementing strict safety protocols.
