Fort Lauderdale, Florida has spent many years in the shadow of the CITY OF MIAMI when it comes to International fair. But thanks to Lauderdale’s budding cultural developments and massive tourism growth, this city is no longer eclipsed by its sister city and is now a hub for foreign markets looking for year round warm weather, beautiful beaches, and a modern take on marine activities. Lauderdale waterways account for a significant portion of the city’s geographic makeup and have become one of the greatest draws for tourism. On the heels of the 55th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, MARINE SALES FROM 2010 TO 2014 HAVE GROWN 21.9 PERCENT IN BROWARD COUNTY. AN ESTIMATED 8.8 BILLION DOLLARS ACCOUNT FOR THE MARINE ECONOMIC IMPACT ON THE CITY. And no wonder with endless options of boating activities on a variety of vessels that suit any taste or budget. Here is KONCEPT EVENTS review of some incredible boating options and a variety of ways you can use them to create unforgettable memories for your next corporate meeting or event in South Florida.
Yachts and Cruising
For a dining experience upon the water, luxury yachts are perfect for chartering. Due to the vast size, this is a highly customizable option for corporate groups when it comes to entertainment and décor. From live bands, casino nights, or art gallery displays, this vessel provides an elevated experience that fits right into the Florida atmosphere.
Fishing Boats and Sporting Activities
Deep sea fishing has long been esteemed as one of the most popular activities for the water-bound that want a challenge and bragging rights upon returning home. Not only can you catch and potentially cook your own meal after you’ve battled Mother Nature, but many of these boats can be outfitted for numerous additional athletic activities. From jet-skiing, paddle boarding, or diving, these sporty options will give corporate groups an opportunity to breathe fresh, ocean air…or test their lungs beneath the surface if they feel inclined.
Sailing and Catamarans
Sailing and catamaran cruises are a popular activity in the Caribbean islands that are offered right here domestically in Fort Lauderdale on a variety of different sized vessels. These boats also vary for purpose so groups can sit back and relax and enjoy the view while sipping a tropical cocktail or take a lesson in how these boats function. New knowledge of knot tying and sail-raising is a perfect ice breaker at an evening cocktail hour later.
