Calling All Captains!
One of South Florida’s most exciting annual events, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, is slated to run from October 31 through November 4. The largest in water boat show in the world, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show attracts boating enthusiasts from all over the world. Hosting over six locations, visitors revel in a first hand look at everything from spectacular super yachts and sail boats to the latest in personal water crafts along with marine and fishing accessories.
Attendees can watch the evening sky light up as the show opens with a brilliant fireworks display, launched from the roof of the Doubletree Hilton Hotel at 7pm Thursday, October 31, 2013.
A smart stop for all attendees is the Sailfish Pavillion, located outside the Broward County Convention Center. This busy attraction features the Landshark Bar and Grill, daily fishing demonstrations and a fabulous array of marine accessories and boats of every shape and size.
A dazzling display of high end “yacht toys” will delight visitors this year, providing a peek into the world of underwater scooters, amphibious ATVs, flying jet packs and motorized surfboards.
Each day visitors can learn from top pros from the International Game Fish Association’s School of Sportfishing and The Blue Wild at one of the free fishing and boating seminars, as well as workshops for adults and children of all ages.
Like islands on the intercostal waterway, temporary floating structures offer thousands of feet of square footage for merchandise display, sales pavilions and entertainment flotillas. These little islands include floating cocktail lounges from Guzzlers presented by Budweiser, the Superyacht hosted by Palm Harbor Marina and Gosling’s Rum Dark & Stormy Bar. Boat show attendees can kick back with a cool drink and listen to live entertainment amidst the din of the lively crowd. For a sophisticated break from the show, The Club at Seafair is a new show feature which includes a restaurant and cocktail lounge with wide views of all the action.
Transportation to the International Boat Show is provided free of charge with a riverboat ride down the New River to the show from Downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Riverfront complex. Attendees can also ride the Water Taxi for $10 per day to any of the show’s six locations while touring Fort Lauderdale from the water.
Adult admission is $22 at the show, children ages 6-15, $7 at the show (with discounts for online ticketing). For more information, call (954) 764-7642 or (800) 940-7642, or visit ShowManagement.com.
