  • Center Console Showcase

    The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was a center console lover’s dream.

    When it comes to checking out the latest center console boats, the 2023 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was the perfect place to start.

    The boat show was a massive one-stop shop with more than 1,000 exhibitors spaced over seven locations in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. For those willing to get their steps in and brave the crowds, the 64th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) was worth the trip.

    From October 25-29, 2023, most attendees shopping for a center console headed to the in-water show at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center and the Broward County Convention Center. Other show locations included the Las Olas Marina, Hall of Fame Marina, SuperYacht Village at Pier 66 South, Pier 66 Marina and 17th Street Yacht Basin.
