Join United Yacht Transport at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

FLIBSIt’s back! The 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is here again. This spectacular event comes to the “Yachting Capital of the World” every year and along with it, magnificent boats and yachts will be on display. With more than 1,000 exhibitors, there is absolutely something for everyone. United Yacht Transport is also pleased to announce a record Mediterranean Fort Lauderdale Boat Show (“FLIBS”) sailing for our company. We filled the entire M/V Clipper New York, including the under deck, from the Mediterranean to Port Everglades just in time for display at this grand event! The largest boats on the Mediterranean sailing were the 124-foot San Lorenzo, 121-foot Couach, 110-foot Fittipaldi, 105-foot Monte Carlo and 92-foot Sunseeker. Several of these boats will be on display during FLIBS. “We are pleased to have another chock-a-block sailing from the Mediterrean”, said Paul Haber, President of United Yacht Transport.
The 57th annual Boat Show started on Thursday, November 3rd and will run through Monday, November 7th. This event is the largest in-water boat show in the world and it is expected that around 130,000 people will attend. This grand affair will cover seven locations with just about 1,500 boats on display. Locations include Bahia Mar, Swimming Hall of Fame, the Las Olas Marina, and the Ft. Lauderdale convention center. You won’t only see gorgeous yachts for sale, but also personal submarines, helicopters, sailboats, and luxury cars. There is a special toy for any high roller out there looking to have some fun, and United Yachts boat transport is excited to be a part of all the action!
