A virtual tour of the Lauderdale Show


Fort Lauderdale is the center of the yachting universe when the boat show rolls into town. Despite the economy, the event drew more than 250 yachts larger than 90 feet.

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is the big top: $3 billion in boats and equipment, five miles of docks and display barges, tents as large as football fields, and more than 100,000 cups of beer served. Click play to join editor Bill Sisson on the docks for a look at what’s new … and the glitz that never grows old.
