WELCOME THE FT. LAUDERDALE YACHT SHOW

The  2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 31-Nov 4, 2013, has drawn to a close.  Picture-perfect weather brought out record numbers of boating enthusiasts.

54th ANNUAL

The 54th installment of the annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, FLIBS, covers six locations and over 3 million square feet of space. Exhibits range from yacht builders and designers, to exotic cars and brokerage yachts. A variety of boats are on display, both in water and on land – runabouts, center consoles, cabin cruisers, skiffs, sailing yachts, tenders, superyachts, megayachts, powerboats, catamarans, and monohull sailboats.

Of course the star attractions each year remain the extraordinary superyacht vessels that dominate the Caribbean yacht charter marketplace each winter.  
“For us, FLIBS represents the launch of the winter charter season,” says Jana Sheeder , President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters“This is our chance to introduce our clients to the winter season’s best options for Florida yacht charter vacations.  Additionally, many of these yachts will consider relocating to the nearby islands to accept Bahamas yacht charter bookings.”

YACHTS IN ATTENDANCE

Among the charter yachts on hand at FLIBS were: 
2009 187 foot #sailboat yacht MONTIGNE 
2010 224 foot Nobiskrug motor yacht SYCARA V
2010 190 foot Trinity super yacht MI SUENO

WATERTOY UPDATES

In addition to the hundreds of yachts on display, Sheeder points out the show is the perfect venue for inspecting and testing the hottest new watertoys.
“If we see a ‘must have’ toy that we feel will enhance the charter experience for our clients, we’ll be the first to promote it to the charter yacht owners.  There is truly something for everyone at FLIBS.”

Yacht Charter Vessels Add Hidden Beach Decks

Posted on

Photograph of the back of a yacht. The area is called the Beach Club. It is deck with chairs, a bar, and teak wood flooring. It is simply an additional room on the yacht.

Beach Club

As a kid, I used to love going to the beach on Key Biscayne in Miami.  The concession stand had the best snow-cones in town, and the long, paved path along the edge of the beach was the perfect place to ride my bicycle.  

 
Sometimes my dad would rent a public cabana for the day, where we could change into our bathing suits, sit in the shade to escape the sun, or draw the curtains to take a nap – away from the crowds on the beach. 
 
The concept (and benefits) of a cabana has finally made its way into the world of yachting, as more and more of the world’s largest yachts now feature “Beach Clubs” – small, private decks that fold out or pop open when the yacht is at anchor. 
 
Located along the sides or aft areas of many new yachts, these beach clubs offer quiet spaces where charter guests can relax, away from the main entertainment spaces of the yacht.  Most feature large oversized chairs, couches, and massage tables, as well as entertainment options such as flat-panel televisions and stereos linked to the yacht’s central entertainment system.    
 
Some of the winter Caribbean yacht charter vessels featuring beach clubs include motor yacht SYCARA V, motor yacht IMAGINE, and motor yacht HARBOUR ISLAND.
 
In an ever-hectic world, expect to see more and more yachts adding private areas for personal retreat and relaxation onboard.
