The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show took place this past weekend, October 31st to November 4, 2013. What an exciting five days we had! With a record number of people attending the show this year we were very pleased to see new and old faces.
From Las Olas to Bahia Mar we had over 80 boats at nine different locations- you couldn’t miss HMY at FLIBS. A member of our team mapped out how far the walk was from D Dock (home to two HMY tents) down to our SuperYachts location on Las Olas: 1.4 miles one way! Some of us made that walk multiple times, we definitely got our workout in for the weekend.
This is the first year we had SuperYachts in the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and we are very pleased with the reception we received. We have recently partnered with Horizon Yachts and Balk Shipyard as we look to expand our SuperYachts division. We are looking to better assist our clients in the larger yacht market, as well as those looking to charter yachts for a luxury experience or arrange charters on their yachts.
We were very pleased with the reaction to the VanDutch yachts. These avant-garde yachts are the perfect fit for the South Florida lifestyle and the crowd at FLIBS loved them! From countless people asking about the design to those who stopped to take pictures and board the yachts, we enjoyed sharing these vessels with South Florida. Luckily South Florida loved them as much as we do- we sold the VanDutch 40 WA at the show and have numerous people coming to sea trial the boats at our VanDutch Sea Trial Experience on Saturday, November 9 in South Beach.
We would like to thank everyone who took time out of their day to come and see us at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. A huge thank you to Show Management for organizing such an amazing show, again! To all the manufacturers, Viking Yachts, Princess Yachts, Grand Banks, Tiara Yachts, Horizon Yachts, VanDutch and our new partners Balk Shipyard- we sincerely enjoy working with you. Lastly, thank you to all our brokers, sales assistants and service team for all their hard work.
We will see you at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in 2014!
