Superyachts Get Enhanced Visibility at 52nd Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show®


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – An exciting collaboration between the Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss) and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show® organizers will offer superyacht builders a new platform to display their latest creations and future builds as the show continues on its path of growth and innovation.

The new 16,000-square-foot SYBAss Pavilion will showcase the world’s leading superyacht builders on a custom-built floating air-conditioned barge along the Intracoastal Waterway at Bahia Mar, the show’s central location. Adding to the new show design is a revamped superyacht docking layout, offering show attendees up-close profile views of the largest yachts in the show.

These show enhancements combined with other show developments including improved signage, an integrated digital experience, more convenient parking options and a layout redesign to the Broward County Convention Center show location, add to the evolution of the largest in-water marine industry event in the world.

“We continue to work year over year to produce a show that excites the boating public and our exhibitors,” said Andrew Doole, senior vice president and COO of Show Management. “Our new partnership with SYBAss and the many other show enhancements we are working on for the 2011 show will surely stand out and prove to be very exciting.”

The show spans six sites this year and will feature more than $3 billion worth of boats, yachts, super yachts, electronics, engines and thousands of boating accessories from every major marine manufacturer and boat builder across the globe, as well as exotic cars, clothing and jewelry. Other activities at the boat show include marine seminars, fishing clinics, live musical entertainment and an International Food Garden. Back again is the Drop N’ Go dock where boats up to 40 feet may drop off or pick up guests at the Atlass Dock located at the Hall of Fame Marina on the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show® takes place this year at six locations: the Bahia Mar Yachting Center, the Hall of Fame Marina, the Las Olas Municipal Marina, the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, the Broward County Convention Center and the Sails Marina.
