THE FLIBS LINEUP

Are you a Trinity, Benetti, or Feadship enthusiast?  How about Abeking & Rasmussen?  FLIBS 2009 cites a record number of luxury yacht charter superyachts attending.  FLIBS stands for Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Andrew Doole of Show Management reports that this year’s FLIBS Golden Anniversary attracts an amazing 149 superyachts over 30m to be displayed.  Thousands of people attend the show, and the internet buzzes with uploaded photos of one gorgeous yacht after another.

WHAT IS A SUPERYACHT?

The standard definition of a superyacht is a luxury yacht over 24 meters long.  The FLIBS show attendance increases from 149 to 209 yachts to celebrate the anniversary.

 

WHICH SPECIFIC YACHTS WILL ATTEND THE SHOW?

Among many others, the list is headed by Feadship’s mighty 65m TRIDENT.  Another is the 62m FORTUNATO.  Finally, Trinity’s 54m KATHERINE and Heesen’s 50m MAN OF STEEL are also in attendance.

 

FLIBS SHOWTIMES

There is a Prime Time preview on Thursday, October 29th from 10 am EST to 7 pm EST, and the show is open to the general public at the same times from Friday, October 30th to Sunday, November 1st.  The show closes at 5 pm EST on Monday, November 2nd, with all superyachts bidding farewell with the blowing of their horns.  It reverberates in the air!

BOAT SHOWS

There are over 25 annual shows for superyacht vessels around the world.  One show is the biggest and best.  It is the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS).

EXHIBITORS AT THE BOAT SHOW

The list of exhibitors at the boat show is typically VIP’s of the superyacht industry. Trinity, Feadship, Lurssen, and Benetti yacht charter enthusiasts are in awe at the sheer number of yachts gathered in one location.

This show affords us an opportunity to educate our luxury yacht charter customers,” states 1-800 Yacht Charters President, Jana Sheeder.

We can take our clients on a tour of several equal-sized yachts and let them compare deck space, cabin size, and onboard amenities.”

“Some of our most popular mega yacht charter vessels are here, for example, ANJILIS and BIG CITY (both along the Face Dock between slips 9A-D) and MARAYA (docked at Bahia Mar in slip A1).” 

The 2009 showcase of luxury sail and motoryachts takes place  October 29th through November 2nd.
