Informa U.S. Boat Shows, in cooperation with Tavistock Development Company and MIASF, has announced the debut of Superyacht Village, a new dedicated marina and on-land exhibition space that will display some of the most spectacular yachts in the show. Making its debut in time for the show October 30 – November 3, Superyacht Village will be hosted at Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina at its new “Pier South” property, which is adjacent to the southeast corner of the 17th Street Causeway Bridge in Fort Lauderdale.
One of the only venues in Fort Lauderdale that can host vessels up to 400 feet, the 3.5-acre Superyacht Village will be framed by exhibits by renowned shipyards, helicopters, personal submarines, and exotic and collectible automobiles. Plans include a destination restaurant, reserved parking, valet, and private water tender services.
As part of the show’s 60th anniversary celebration, the Superyacht Village also will feature programming taking place both day and night. Examples include exclusive fine wine and champagne tastings, intimate concerts, pop-up luxury fashion and jewelry exhibits, automotive and superyacht toy interactives, award receptions, seminars, and the second annual FLIBS Best Yacht Chef Competition.
The Superyacht Village will be open to all general admission ticket holders with direct access by water tenders and shuttle bus routes from the show’s other six locations.
