Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
Now that the over-the-top Monaco Yacht Show finished last month, it’s time to look forward to incredible Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS). This popular boat show runs from October 25-29 2012.
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is recognized as the world’s largest in-the-water boat show, and is a favorite for many superyacht owners, buyers and charterers.
Burgess is clearly the leader in luxury super yachts and will dazzle the audience at this year’s FLIBS with ten of the show’s most impressive boats. This is your chance to see up close the record-breaking CAKEWALK, the innovative and elegant BATON ROUGE and the impeccable Feadship APRIL FOOL.
To view these incredible luxury vessels, Rolls-Royce will be offering a courtesy water transfer service to allow you to experience these ultimate luxury yachts first hand. The show yachts are all available for purchase or charter.
Here’s a review of each of the luxury superyachts at the 2012 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) from Burgess.
