The Fort Lauderdale Boat Show is a boat extravaganza held every year. The event brings together more than 1,500 boats from across seas, with over 110,000 visitors and 1,200 exhibitors attending. Located only a few steps away from South Florida beach, the show offers the ultimate experience when it comes to boat shows. Also, there is a wide range of items available to purchase - right from superyachts to sunglasses.
Visit the marine professionals of Propeller Depot at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, to receive the absolute best prices on all marine hardware, boat props, zincs, hardware, and general boating parts. Propeller Depot is located in the Bahia Mar Engine tent, which is a great location for food, drink, yachts, shopping, and so much more.
Yachts and Vessels of All Kinds
The show attracts vessels that are worth a lot more than a billion dollars in total. From limousine tenders and spectacular superyachts to sport fishing boats, the event brings them all together at one place. Quite a few people visiting the show are there not just to view what's on display but also to buy those superyachts and other vessels. And every year, there is a slew of new yachts making their debut at the event. This means if you attended the 2018 event, you still have solid reasons to be part of the fun at the 2019 show.
Things to Do
There are many things to do in Fort Lauderdale, besides the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

Downtown Fort Lauderdale is home to shops, cultural attractions, restaurants and parks. If you are into arts and history, there are several theaters, museums, historical centers, and opera houses to keep you engaged. Not to mention, being a city on the south-eastern coast of Florida, there is no dearth of beaches here.
