Few things solidify Fort Lauderdale’s long-standing nickname as the “Venice of America” than the prestigious Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Taking place every fall – this year from November 5-9 – it is one of the maritime events in the country. From kayaking and sailing, to yachting and fishing, your nautical preferences will definitely be catered to by this major showcase.
Well over 1,500 sea vessels will be exhibited across 3 million square feet of exhibit space. The displays span just about every type imaginable: runabouts, sportfishers, high performance boats, cabin cruisers, flats boats, skiffs, express cruisers, sailing yachts, motor yachts, catamarans, ski boats, trawlers, canoes, opulent super-yachts, and still more! Whether you’re a passionate boat aficionado or just looking for something interesting, you’ll find it all here.
Last year’s boat show was one of the largest on record, and this year is set to be even more popular, especially with Fort Lauderdale’s pristine climate this time of year. Indeed, sea vessels aren’t the only things being showcased here: the city’s pristine coastline, gorgeous waterways, and year-round sunshine will definitely be on full display, showing just why this city has earned its prestigious nickname.
With approximately 100 marinas and 45,000 boats docked at any time, Fort Lauderdale is the destination of choice for those who love everything about the salt life. Many of the Fort Lauderdale Homes For Sale are waterfront and offer boat docks with access to the sea. Many more overlook the beach, Intracoastal Waterway, or the numerous pristine canals that intersect this colorful coastal community.
