The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show opens to the public Thursday, Oct. 30, with a special preview day and runs through 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4. The show spans six locations — including Bahia Mar Yachting Center and the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center — and more than 3 million square feet of space.
Some of the new fishing boats we expect to see debuted at the show include the Regulator 25, Sea Vee 430 Fish Around and Z Series, and Boston Whaler’s 345 Conquest and new and revamped Dauntless models. The show also features new electronics and boating accessories.
To get you in the boat-show mood, check out some of our coverage from last year’s event, which was made particularly memorable by a brief brush with the fringes of Hurricane Sandy.
