Arguably the main yacht show in the United States, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is set to start to start on the 1st of November and last for a total of 5 days. Earlier this year Informa, the parent company of the Monaco Yacht Show, spent $133 million to acquire a portfolio of shows, which included FLIBS. We now look at the largest yachts on display at the upcoming show.
Length: 78m (255 ft)
Yard: Lurssen (2008)

Originally built as Madsummer for American billionaire, Jeffrey Soffer in 2008, the yacht was later reportedly sold to her current Mexican owner and renamed TV. She was then listed for sale in September 2014 asking €130,000,000, with a price reduction to €92 million in July 2016. She has remained on the brokerage market.
With a length of 78.4 meters (257 ft), TV was built by Lurssen to an exterior design by Espen Oeino and an interior by Alberto Pinto.

Yard: Abeking & Rasmussen (2016)
Weekly rate: from €750,000 per week
The explorer superyacht Cloudbreak, built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2016, owes her name to a big wave in Fiji that very few surfers dare defy. For a good reason, she is often described as a high-tech floating chalet, able to accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins within her interior space, designed by Christian Liaigre.
Her amenities, conceived to suit the lifestyle of a young and adventurous owner, include playing, airfield, comfort and party zones, as well as a research and sports center. Cloudbreak is a substantial go-anywhere vessel with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.

Accommodating up to 12 guests in 8 cabins, Suri was extended amidst ship in 2012 by 11 meters, which extended her sundeck, arguably the nicest area on the yacht, and extended the helipad. Amongst the yacht's special features are a large cinema room on the lower deck with a glass-bottom floor to observe the fish and an observational lounge on top of the bridge.
