Fraser to Attend the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2017
Taking place from 1st–5th November, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2017 is just around the corner and will once again bring a fleet of spectacular superyachts to Florida’s sunny shores. The largest in-water yacht show on earth, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) welcomes over three billion dollars’ worth of luxury yachts, sportfishers, and tenders, which will be displayed in seven locations, including the show’s epicentre at Bahia Mar.
Luxury on Show
As one of the most important events on the yachting calendar, FLIBS is the ideal time for shipyards to unveil their latest launches and projects: many yachts enjoy their debut on the world stage in front of interested buyers, yacht brokers, and the international press. Another overwhelming crowd favourite at FLIBS is the display of the latest superyacht watertoys, supercars, and accessories: yachting professionals, Owners, and seafaring enthusiasts will have the opportunity to visit 900+ exhibitors, who will present the latest yachting technology, products, and yacht supplies.
An Atmosphere to Savour
There’s an energy and enthusiasm to this show unlike any other, as around 100,000 visitors flood through the gates to view the dazzling yachts, enjoy the party atmosphere, and attend fishing clinics, watersport demonstrations, and seminars. In the evenings, fireworks and bands light up the night, while VIP guests will be invited onto yachts for glamorous cocktail parties that will last long into the balmy Florida night.
As the world’s leading luxury yachting brokerage, Fraser will be offering a bespoke yacht show experience to each of its discerning clients, including a luxury car service thanks to its partnership with Porsche. In 2017, Fraser will exhibit eight spectacular superyachts at FLIBS: M/Y LADY SARA, M/Y TURQUOISE, M/Y VICTORIA DEL MAR, M/Y SCOUT, M/Y SPIRIT, M/Y NOMADESS, M/Y ALESSANDRA III, and M/Y DECK OF CARDS.
