Edmiston and partners welcome you to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

Complimentary transfers, expert advice, and world-class hospitality will make this your best FLIBS yet

At this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2023 (FLIBS), from 25-29 October, Edmiston will be joined by a host of carefully picked partners to ensure all our clients experience seamless service and first-star hospitality from start to finish, with expertise never far away.

The five-day Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is the largest in-water boat show in the world, with six miles of floating pontoons along the South Florida coastline that regularly attracts over 100,000 visitors.

This year, Edmiston is bringing a fleet of superb superyachts to wow the crowds in Florida.

With HELIOS 2, the 51m 2002 yacht from Palmer Johnson, there’s an excellent opportunity for a new Owner to buy a pedigree yacht that belies her age thanks to a 2023 refit. With a spectacular sun deck that features a hexagonal Jacuzzi forward, and air-conditioning on the aft deck, she’s exceptionally well suited to the Florida climate.

Guests looking for a classic yacht in excellent condition, should look to the 36.45m Feadship LADY VICTORIA, which has had just two Owners since launch in 1991 and has been used sparingly.

Inside, she’s pleasingly traditional, while outside there are generous deck spaces. The yacht benefited from a major refit in 2022, which included a hull repaint and new generators.

The 44m CMN yacht De-De, new to the Edmiston fleet, will also be joining us at the Fort Lauderdale show. Having recently undergone a major refit, and with masses of charter potential, visitors will no doubt be impressed by her outdoor areas and classic interiors.

Rounding off our fleet in Florida is the 39m Westport 130 yacht DONA LONA, which launched in 2003 yet has been meticulously maintained and easily rivals more modern versions of the popular model today.
