The 58th edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will see an additional day added to the event schedule. This year opening its doors on Wednesday 1st November - as opposed to the usual first Thursday of the month - the show will draw to a close on 5th November. Here we look at our Top 5 must-see superyachts on display in Florida. 


Featuring an Espen Oeino exterior and a Christian Liaigre interior, Cloudbreak was completed by German yard Abeking & Rasmussen in 2016. Her owner wasted no time in testing out her explorer capabilities, heading to Greenland for her first expedition.

Feadship’s Vanish was delivered in mid-2016 and features a blend of classic, contemporary lines from Eidsgaard Design, who also undertook her interior. She features some Feadship firsts, including a freestanding staircase stretching across three decks.
