Yachts For Sale In Fort Lauderdale

With 300 miles of waterways and host of the largest in-water boat show in the world (FLIBS), this is no exaggeration. Fort Lauderdale, the primary city in Broward County, is truly among the best places for recreational boating, cruising and fishing. Fort Lauderdale has always been a top tourist destination, whether by land or by waterway. The Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway is lined on both sides with beautiful mansions, marinas and restaurants; ideal for sight-seeing and enjoying life on the water. Cruisers are advised to check fixed bridge and draw bridge heights, and opening schedules. Be sure to check for local shoaling, especially near inlets. The sandbars are a popular spot for recreational boaters, especially families, to anchor, raft-up with friends and enjoy a day on the water. These sandbar shoal areas can get very crowded on the weekends!

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) is scheduled each year at the end of October. Fort Lauderdale is also known for the spectacular Winterfest Boat Parade in December, when both sides of the Intercoastal (AICW) are lined with multiple thousands of spectators, kicking off the Holiday Season revelries. Water taxis, that stop at major locations on their routes and run on a schedule, are a convenient way to get around on the water and avoid driving, parking in the busy downtown and beach areas.

The Fort Lauderdale area features many excellent marinas, with some facilities that can accommodate vessels of superyacht size! Some well-known marinas are Bahia Mar Marina (site of FLIBS), Pier 66 Marina (FLIBS), Fort Lauderdale City Marina on Las Olas (also leases slips), Sails Marina, Dania Beach Marina (can accommodate liveaboards), Lighthouse Point Marina (Lighthouse Pt.), Sands Harbor Resort & Marina (Pompano Beach) and many more. Marinas that can accommodate liveaboards are Las Olas Marina, Marina Bay Marina, Hall of Fame Marina (site of FLIBS), Royale Palm Yacht Basin (vessels up to 80’) and Coral Ridge Yacht Club. For kid and pet-friendly marinas, check Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina, Yacht Haven Park & Marina and the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina. Check with dockwa.com for bookable marinas in the Fort Lauderdale area and further information on special features and amenities.

A number of marinas feature excellent restaurants on site or nearby. Coconuts, located at the Hall of Fame Marina, is highly recommended and features American food and its bar. Pier Sixty-Six Marina’s Grille 66 & Bar is an upscale steakhouse and seafood restaurant. The marina’s Pelican Landing, which features international fare, is more casual. Another waterfront restaurant recommended by a United Yacht Sales broker, is Bimini Boatyard on 17th Street. Other waterfront restaurants with docks or located nearby, are Boatyard, 15th Street Fisheries (good for kids, lunch), Southport Raw Bar & Restaurant, Blue Moon Fish Company, Rendezvous, Lauderdale Marina, Rustic Inn Crabhouse (west of FTL airport), Boathouse at the Riverside (Las Olas), Flip Flops Dockside Eatery (traditional American) and the Nauti Dawg Marina Café located in the “cute” Lighthouse Point marina. For a casual waterside place to tie-up and have lunch, The Patio Bar & Grill at Sands Harbor Resort & Marina (Pompano Beach, AICW) is a great place to watch the boat traffic go by or wait for the Atlantic Blvd. Draw Bridge to open up, and it is only a 7-minute walk from Sands Harbor to Pompano Beach on the Atlantic Ocean.

Downtown Fort Lauderdale and the New River/Las Olas area features the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District with restaurants and bars, museums, entertainment, shopping and, of course, the paved walkway along the New River and green spaces. Nearby Hollywood, FL is the locale of the Hard Rock Live, the Savor Cinema (indie movies), and the downtown Hollywood Mural Project featuring murals by internationally recognized artists. Fort Lauderdale and area welcomes the boating community and has much to offer—a “boater’s paradise”!
