Discussion in 'Boat Shows & Yacht Watching' started by German Yachting, Oct 28, 2018.
For those attending the show this year, let’s consolidate photos from the show here.
Arrived at the show yesterday. Splitting a room at Bahia Mar with Tom Serio. Sorry for the picture quality. Using an image resizing app on my iPad. Most notable observation is the disproportionate number of large boats. Feels like FLIBS is going the way of Monaco…
Center consoles are becoming disproportionate too...
I am a fan of the mega yachts coming to the show. I was hoping to swing by tonight to do a quick photo shoot before attending the show. However, my flight out has been diverted to Memphis due to a medical emergency so might not be able to make it in time for tonight.
I’m flying into the show tonight but our boat is near las Olas and the crew just sent a fun picture. Hot tub should be nice after hours!
Carl's post made me curious as to what boats are being exhibited and as I'm in the car and bored, I decided to see.
200'+ 3 Boats
180-199' 8 Boats
160-179' 9 Boats
140-159' 21 Boats
120-139' 25 Boats
100-119' 50 Boats
80-99' 70 Boats
60-79' 142 Boats
40-59' 185 Boats
20-39' 263 Boats
Center consoles - 93 Boats
Not entirely accurate on the 200’+ range. I know of 5 (and one about there at 199).
Las Olas bridge overlooking the face dock, north end.
Aquarium display at the convention center filled with jellyfish that take on an iridescent glow with colored lighting. For those who are new to the show, the convention center is center-console central. It's also where outboard manufacturers display their latest bolt-ons.
Had to leave my car at the convention center for a few days, so took a few shots before heading to Bahia Mar. Is this a Zuki-go-round or a 4-stroke face off?
Good addition to the rogues thread? Builder is apparently not familiar with the meaning of freeboard!
Manta Racks: plugs in to rod holders, made to carry paddle boards. Good idea for a niche market.
Guess the boat hiding in this picture?
Second clue. Carl is scheduled for a private tour tomorrow afternoon.
A big thank you to a very special YF member for arranging this.
Spotted at the Hilton face dock across from Pier 66.
Name this Palmer Johnson.
One of our favorite humans.
Who would be brave enough to bolt this to their transom?
(My guess is "Judy would"... it matches perfectly.)
Four times Seven equals $400k!
I was going from FLIB's website. Guess extras got in after their list was made. And 199 is just almost. There were a couple of 199's and other almost 200's.
