New Superyacht Village and marina to debut at FLIBS 2019
This year's Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will see the unveiling of a brand new Superyacht Village at Pier 66 South. Already the largest in-water boat show in the world, this new dedicated marina and on-land exhibition space will expand FLIBS 2019 to over three million square feet and is the seventh site to be in use at the show.
The new 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. As one of few venues in Fort Lauderdale that can host vessels up to 400 feet (121 metres), the 3.5-acre Superyacht Village will also host displays of helicopters, personal submarines, collectable cars and more. The Village will be open to all general admission ticket holders with access provided by water tenders and shuttle bus routes from the show’s other six locations.
“We are honored to host the new Superyacht Village at Pier Sixty-Six’s new ‘Pier South’ property, which overlooks the Port and offers superyachts the perfect place to call home,” commented Jessi Blakley, senior director of Tavistock Development Company. “Pier Sixty-Six is one of the East Coast’s premier yachting destinations, and the exclusive offerings of the Village align with our vision for the future of our iconic property as the social harbor of Fort Lauderdale.”
