We Had A Blast at FLIBS 2017

Nov 1-5, 2017 | Bahia Mar Marina, Fort Lauderdale
Hampton Yacht Group of Florida

The 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was a huge success for HYG. We were thrilled to be showing in the Motoryacht section of the show for the first time with our new Hampton 650 and Hampton Euro 830 models. The sleek long range cruiser Endurance 658 outshone neighboring boats in the Trawler section, with its beautiful interior and enticing display. 

With the new management in charge of the show this year, there were a number of enormous improvements including increased foot traffic, free WiFi, and well organized parking.

For the past few years, we've typically seen at least one torrential downpour during the FLIBS weekend, so we truly appreciated the consistent sunshine and blue skies.

A smashing hit was our Hampton and Endurance Owners VIP Cocktail party, which featured smooth soul music from guitarist Omar Mesa, plenty of finger foods including ceviche, spanakopita, and chimmichurri steak. Our mini-cupcakes decorated to look like sushi were also a party favorite. Everyone enjoyed the craft beer provided by local Khoffner Brewery and a selection of wines including Wishing Tree Chardonnay, La Puerta Malbec, La Puerta Bonarda, Pazo Pandal Lenda, Tierra Del Sol Sauvignon Blanc.

With much interest over the eagerly anticipated Hampton Euro 830, considerable traffic through the established favorite Endurance 658, and dozens of compliments on the fresh-from-the-factory Hampton 650, it is safe to say that this was an incredibly successful boat show to start the holiday season with!
