The 62nd annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) – taking place Wednesday, October 27th through Sunday, October 31st, 2021 – will bring the ultimate in luxury yachts and cutting-edge marine technology.
FLIBS, owned by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida and managed by Informa Markets, offers the largest in-water presence of boats and marine exhibits in the world. It will be a show-stopping event over the course of five days filled with unforgettable activations, including the return of the Superyacht Village, Windward VIP Club, and the premiere of the Fort Lauderdale Concours.
“The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show has been a leader in showcasing the most luxurious yachts and innovative marine products,” said Andrew Doole, President of U.S. Boat Shows for Informa Markets. “From the return of the Superyacht Village to the Windward VIP Club, the 2021 show is expected to continue raising the bar on high-end boating experiences for guests seeking adventures out on the water.”
Making its way back to this year’s show is the luxurious Superyacht Village, an exclusive marina that will showcase spectacular yachts as well as renowned shipyards, personal submarines, and exotic collectible automotive items.
The 62nd annual FLIBS will set the stage for highly anticipated debuts of megayachts by world class manufacturers such as Azimut Yachts, Ocean Alexander, Princess Yachts, and the Ferretti Group. Among the yachts that will be making their grand entrances include the first ever Trideck superyacht from Azimut Yachts, equipped with three decks in one spectacular vessel. Fit for the ultimate lifestyle of luxury and leisure, the Azimut Grande Trideck offers four terraces perfect for sunbathing, dining, and adventure. The innovative Trideck also includes a “Hotel Mode,” a sustainable element of the superyacht that allows guests to enjoy the open waters in the most peaceful silence while contributing zero emissions.
After enjoying the impressive and unique display of superyachts and luxury vessels, the Windward VIP Club at FLIBS – in partnership with Douglas Elliman Real Estate – will provide guests with an exclusive indoor and outdoor sanctuary to relish in the excitement of the boat show. With shore and water views alongside a premium open bar and gourmet food offerings, the Windward Club is the perfect setting to enjoy FLIBS in style.
For visitors looking for an exclusive party accentuated by vintage collectibles, fine cocktails, and live music, the Fort Lauderdale Concours event at FLIBS will be your ideal Friday night event. Curated by the creators of The New York City Concours and taking place at the Las Olas parking lot rooftop – with stunning views of the city’s picturesque beach, Intracoastal waterway, and downtown skyline – guests can kick back and luxuriate among galleries of classic cars, high-end sneaker curation, and live entertainment from the Valerie Tyson Band, an eight piece electrifying band specializing in top 40 popular music, Jazz, Classic Rock, R&B, and Reggae as well as sounds by international DJ Anna de Ferran aka ADF.
