If you’re anywhere close to Fort Lauderdale in late October, make it a point to attend the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this year (Oct. 30-Nov. 3). You’ll be amazed at the number of boats, engines and accessories, as well as people, food vendors and excitement surrounding the show.
My favorite place to visit includes the exhibits in the huge white tents at the Bahia Mar venue next to the on-water boat displays. More likely than not, you’ll find me roaming the Electronics Pavilion.
There are a host of new products – too many to mention here – from companies such as Furuno, Garmin, Icom, Raymarine, Simrad and many others. There are also retailers selling the latest marine electronics.
It’s our goal to keep you posted on new-product introductions at the show, so follow Boating on our social media channels and our website to make sure you’re up on the latest, whether you’re attending the show or not.
In the meantime, here’s my list of 10 must-see new marine electronics at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this year.
