It’s coming to Fort Lauderdale and—no surprise—it’s going to be big. Welcome to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), taking place from October 26-30, 2022.
This year marks the 63rd occurrence of what has become the largest in-water boat show in the world. It’s happening in SkY360 Development’s backyard, and it embodies our mantra: luxury, location, and lifestyle. That’s why many a SkY360 homeowner has it inked on the calendar!
The Greatest Boat Show on Earth
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is considered one of the best—if not the best—boat shows in the world.
For starters, because of its spectacular venue: the sleek and polished coastal city of Fort Lauderdale with its white-sand beaches, sparkling waterways, sprawling mansions, supercars, and mega yachts.
Anyone in the nautical rec world knows that there are two yachting meccas: Fort Lauderdale and Monaco. So, when one of these locations hosts a boat show, people flock. Lots of them. From everywhere.
It’s not just about the boats, of course. It’s about the whole festival feeling that permeates the city during those last few October days. Between events and during evening hours, show visitors can be found in all of South Florida’s vacation lifestyle hotspots —trying out SUPs on the Atlantic, soaking up the sun beside luxury pools, sipping iced mochas in boho cafes, and chatting over fine wines in upscale restaurants.
The boat show is the perfect excuse for a getaway in a place that’s the epitome of luxury and vacation!
FLIBS also deserves reverence because of the sheer number of exceptional assets it attracts. Mariners and yachting enthusiasts (categories that include SkY360 homeowners) alike are in nirvana. This year, 1500 vessels will be on display, including the big boy toys at superyacht enclave “Superyacht Village.” (One of this year’s featured superyachts is the Mangusta Oceano 50, “the flagship of the displacement long range line Mangusta Oceano.”).
All major and minor players in boat manufacturing will also be present, including Axopar Boats, Northstar Boats, MJM Yachts, LEKKER Boats, Islamorada Boatworks, Schaefer Yachts, Invincible Boats, & more.
Beyond the Boat Show: Wining and Dining
FLIBS brings visitors the best of everything, and that includes the very best in food and beverage offerings. International gourmet culinary master Vagn Nielson (Proof of the Pudding’s Corporate Executive Chef) adds heft to the cuisine scene with a comprehensive selection of exquisite dishes to please every show visitor’s palate.
A show this size of course has a myriad of options for satisfying one’s appetite, from Chef Nielson’s signature sit-down experiences to grab-and-go gyros, street tacos, and artisan burgers. The options are endless and sure to satisfy whatever culinary cravings you may have.
