Dinghies aside (thats thrice weve said dinghy in one article oops, four times!), the 48th version of the show, happening Thursday through Monday, will be spread across six locations full of freshly-waxed, floating goodness. Bahia Mar will play host to the Superyacht Showcase and the Yachtbuilders Tent, where visitors can step aboard multi-million dollar mammoths and chat with the folks that build them. The Hall of Fame Marina will host a brokerage show and Exotic Car Showcase, while Las Olas Marina shows off a collection of sleek catamarans. Finally, the Broward Convention Center will have a huge assortment of watercraft and nautical goods on display, and the Fort Lauderdale Grand and Hyatt Pier 66 will alternate showings of the Queen of the Show, the 223-foot superyacht, Kismet. Tickets run from $5 to $30, and transport between sites is available for $10 per day. Visit www.showmanagement.com.
