Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2017

fl-fl-boat-show-0621-jpg-20160620

Fort Lauderdale’s annual marine ‘Super Bowl’ sails back into town Wednesday and early indicators from exhibitors and organizers point to another stellar run for the five-day extravaganza. Helping to fuel the wave of optimism for the 58th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is an already strong year of boat sales, rising consumer confidence and an upbeat economic outlook. “We’re expecting a strong selling show,” said Andrew Doole, vice president and general manager of Informa Exhibitions, the event’s producer. “Sales coming into the show are good. We’ve had to change some boats around because boats are sold before they’ve even gotten here.” The 58th edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will come to town Nov. 1-5 with more than 1,2000 boats on display.

More than 100,000 enthusiasts from around the globe are expected to attend the show, which is said to pack a bigger economic punch in the tri-county region than the National Football League’s signature game when it’s been held in South Florida. The 2015 boat show generated an estimated $531.5 million in economic impact in South Florida and $857.3 million statewide, according to a study by Thomas J. Murray & Associates and the University of Florida released last year. By comparison, South Florida officials have estimated the Super Bowl’s impact to be in the mid-$300 million to high-$400 million range.

Foot traffic during the show is likely to be brisk provided the current good weather holds. “The online ticket sales are very strong. They’re running 16 percent ahead of last year,” Doole said. Informa installed millions of dollars in upgrades to help visitors and improve operations. Enhancements include a mile of new floating docks, new “cushy” waterproof flooring in most exhibition tents and new electrical equipment. Directional signage affixed to metallic totem poles and color-coded zones are expected to help visitors navigate more easily through the thousands of boats on display. New digital software will enable visitors to print a downloadable “walking list” of exhibitors and products. The show will feature about 1,600 boats while 1,400 exhibitors from more than 40 countries showcase roughly $4 billion in small vessels, yachts, superyachts, electronics and marine accessories.

Ever-larger yachts require bigger tools

$

The Beast and Brutus, a pair of hulking green boat lifts, have arrived at their new home, the Lauderdale Marine Center. The giant lifts were added this summer at the sprawling Fort Lauderdale boatyard, marina and repair facility as part of its growing arsenal of tools to expand its capacity to service bigger yachts. Built by Cimolai Technology of Italy, they were shipped to Fort Lauderdale in parts for final assembly. The Beast, which has a 485-ton capacity, is expected to begin operations by mid-August and will be used to service vessels of up to about 180 feet in length, said Doug West, LMC president during a tour Wednesday. The 220-ton Brutus entered service in early June and can handle boats of up to approximately 130 feet in length.

Fort Lauderdale in beach mode

sfl-fort-lauderdale-beach-facelift-planned-201-004

Fort Lauderdale beach visitors will soon see dramatic changes as they cross east over the Las Olas Boulevard bridge to the barrier island. Six major projects that have been debated for years are approved now. Together, they are expected to change the beachside parking layout significantly, add two park options for visitors who don’t want sand in their toes, and entice swimmers who prefer chlorine to salt. Some changes might not be embraced by all. For instance, the number of public parking spots in the Las Olas/State Road A1A area will be reduced. And a new garage is a two-block trek — with beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers — from the beach.
