BOAT International held its exclusive Captains’ Club event on 27 October during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2023. Supported by annual partner Starboard Card and event partner Belize Tourism Board, the events offered a unique opportunity to network and share experiences amongst like-minded yachting professionals.

The Captains’ Club event was held at the renowned Wreck Bar, located within the B Ocean Resort. Nestled on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the Wreck Bar provided the perfect backdrop for an evening of camaraderie and celebration following a long day at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Its nautical-themed decor offered an ideal setting for the occasion.

The event was attended by esteemed members of the Captains’ Club, senior BOAT International staff and valued partners.
