A new location at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

Oct 11, 2009

We suspect that you, like us, marvel at the scope of staging the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Setting up the numerous exhibit tents, bringing in enough electricity to power a small city, adding miles of floating dock and bringing in hundreds of yachts of all sizes and shapes into spaces where only inches separate them is an enormous task.

Deciding how to position each yacht in the show is like doing a monster jigsaw puzzle. In fact, at Show Managements’ office in Fort Lauderdale, that is exactly how they do it. A large wall with the entire footprint of the show, including every slip, is laid out. Then cutout cardboard hull shapes, each one representing a yacht in the show, are positioned, repositioned and carefully adjusted numerous times until the entire show is complete.

Why are we telling you this? This year we are adding Marco Polo, the 147’ motoryacht (and winner of a Showboats International Design Award) we built in 2007. She is much too large to fit into the space we had at our old location at the show. As a result, we have moved to an area where we could increase the size of our display. We moved south along the face dock (the main thoroughfare alongside the Intracoastal Waterway at Bahia Mar) to display location F3.

In addition to Marco Polo we will have three new yachts on display including a Bravo Series 92, Bravo Series 78 and Serenity Series 68. As in the past, boarding these yachts at the show is done by pass only. If you would like to make an appointment to view any of these yachts, you can make prior arrangements for a specific time by contacting our office.

The show runs from October 29th - November 2nd from 10am to 7pm, except on Monday (the 2nd) when the show closes at 5pm.
