The 58th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) is finally here!
FLIBS 2017 runs through Sunday, November 5, and promises to be bigger and better than ever!
This year, there will be nearly 1,500 boats on display, across more than 3 million square feet of exhibit space. which includes more than $4 billion worth of boats, yachts, marine accessories, products, art, and jewelry.
As usual, one of the biggest draws to FLIBS is its display of superyachts, and this year there will be more spectacular examples than ever before. For example, the largest yacht on display at FLIBS 2017 will be the 257-foot superyacht TV. Of course not everyone attending the show can afford a superyacht; many go just to ogle these majestic vessels. However, the show is also designed to appeal to the Ultra High Net Worth Individuals (UHNWI) who actually come shopping for a superyacht and all the luxuries that go with it.
Multi-million-dollar superyachts comprise an elite subset among the more than almost 1500 boats of all sizes and prices that will be on display through Sunday. According to a Press Release from show organizers, the “Queen of the Show,” the 257-foot TV, built by German yacht builder Lurssen, is among the “Top Ten Superyachts at FLIBS 2017.” Here are the other nine in descending size order:
