Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show under way

Whether you’re looking for a 247-foot super yacht or 4-foot sport cruiser, you can find it at the 56th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

On Thursday, PARAMOUNT Fort Lauderdale Beach and OneWorld Properties helped launch the world’s largest in-water boat show with two splashy events. PARAMOUNT Fort Lauderdale Beach and PARAMOUNT Attaché invited owners and brokers to the Annual Owner’s Boat Show Brunch to kick-off the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Later that night at the Windward Club VIP lounge, Paramount Fort Lauderdale Beach and National Jets, Inc. hosted another event for Fort Lauderdale’s top hedge fund investors.

The show continues from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. today through Sunday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday in the Yachting Capital of the World.

The seven locations are: Bahia Mar Yachting Center, Hall of Fame Marina, Las Olas Marina, Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, Fort Lauderdale Hilton Marina, The Sails Marina and Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six.

Nearly 1,500 boats are on display across more than 3 million square feet of exhibit space. For ticket information and more details, see flibs.com.
