With over 300 miles of inland waterway and 50,000 registered yachts, Fort Lauderdale is often referred to as the “Yachting Capital of the World.”  Annually, Fort Lauderdale gets 3,000 hours of sun serving as a haven for boaters who enjoy the finer things in life like leisurely rides along the Intracoastal.  Early in the morning, or early in the evening, the waterways serve as a live backdrop to some of the most gorgeous sunrises and sunsets in the world.

Fort Lauderdale is home to the largest boat show in the world and it’s no wonder why.  The Intracoastal Waterway offers extremely close proximity to the inland waterways of the Atlantic Ocean.  Socialites and celebrities can often be found soaking in the Fort Lauderdale sun on beaches, or cruising along the waters in the finest of yachts.
