Highlights From Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show

YV&C Show Photo Album

The mood was definitely upbeat on Thursday, October 28, as the 45th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show commenced with the largest opening day crowd in its history. The YV&C staff was on hand and spent most of their time at Bahia Mar and Las Olas, touring the show's superyachts. We're happy to report that the weather was sunny and beautiful, the brokers were optimistic, the crews were as gracious as ever, and the yachts were crowded with prospective clients for both sale and charter. It was a great opportunity to exchange ideas with so many of you. Following is our Fort Lauderdale Photo Album with some highlights from this year's show. Enjoy - and here's to a great season!
