“Today, we had an amazingly successful first day of the 63rd Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, welcoming thousands of boating enthusiasts back to experience the splendor that FLIBS offers year after year. The atmosphere, the weather, all down to every small detail has been amazing. We are ecstatic to see what the next four days has to offer but one thing is guaranteed - perfect boating forecast. We’d especially like to thank our partners at the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF), the Broward County Commission and City of Fort Lauderdale for their unwavering commitment to our Show.
