The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is one of the most exciting events in South Florida, celebrating the luxury of being surrounded by water. This year’s boat show is taking place October 27 through 31 and is the largest in-water boat show in the world. With 677 boats taking part in this year's show, there is no shortage of beautiful boats and megayachts that are calling your name.
But the most important part of purchasing a new boat is having somewhere to dock it, and what's better than docking it in your own backyard. “Fort Lauderdale is the yachting capital of the world and has some of the most coveted waterfront properties built to cater to the ultimate boating lifestyle,” said Chad Carroll. We have teamed up with Chad Carroll, of Compass’ The Chad Carroll Group to see some of the most spectacular waterfront homes that are currently on the market. Carroll has carefully curated the perfect homes to accompany one of the many boats at the show, he explained “From massive docks to accommodate multiple boats, to expansive outdoor spaces for entertaining and stunning interiors - these properties have everything you need."
Listed for $31 Million, 2412 Laguna Drive is all you could want and more in a waterfront home. With 120 feet of water frontage and a beautiful lap pool, this home has plenty of space for a mega yacht and a lot of time spent outside. Located within the prestigious Harbor Beach gated community, the 6 bedroom and 7 full bathroom home, is the dream property. Home highlights include DuChateau oak floors, 200 bottle wine cellar, a 2-story marble fireplace and a fully-equipped prep kitchen.
Listed for $45 Million, 130 W Coconut Palm Road is made for a boat lover. With 357-feet of deep waterfront, this home is practically your backyard marina. This water frontage can fit a large yacht and a variety of water toys. The home is already well equipped with a jet ski lift and boat lift. Located in Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, this large home sits on almost an acre of property, with practically a one-of-a-kind backyard. Every detail of this home has been thought out, from the boat lift to the golf-cart spacing, there is truly no need to leave this expansive property.
Listed for $12.75 Million, 65 Isla Bahia is the perfect home and the perfect place to dock your boat. With 100 feet of waterfront, this dock can fit up to an 80-foot boat, with its deep water and large outdoor area. At this home, the outdoor space is a highlight with a beautiful saltwater pool, summer kitchen and outdoor bar. When back inside the home, looking out on the backyard and water is a dream, especially with the water-facing kitchen and entertainment island. The perfect home for indoor, outdoor living and a seamless transition from the boat to land.
