Following great feedback from the inaugural gathering of multi-hulled vessels at Pier 66 during last year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), Catamaran Cove returns this year with a wide variety of catamarans from many of the industry’s builders.
Included among approximately 20 catamarans set to be on display at the 57th edition of the largest in-water boat show in the world are Gunboat, Horizon, Lagoon, Leopard and Hudson, among others, both sail and power, ranging in size from 35 to 75 feet.
“Our goal with Catamaran Cove is to develop it into the largest catamaran show in the world, taking place each year during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show,” said Brett Keating, vice president of consumer marketing for Show Management, producers of FLIBS since 1976.
The Pier 66 Marina is equipped to accommodate Catamaran Cove. It offers amenities such as multiple restaurants, including Grill 66 & Bar and Pelican Landing; a Water Taxi pick-up and drop-off dock; valet parking at the Hyatt Pier 66 hotel; and nearby self-parking across the street at the Sails Marina.
Set to take place in the “Yachting Capital of the World” from Nov. 3 to 7, FLIBS is the world’s largest in-water boat show, covering seven locations with nearly 1,500 boats displayed across more than 3 million square feet of exhibit space.
