Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2018

See you in Fort Lauderdale

As the name and reputation of Van der Valk continues to grow in the USA, we are looking forward to meeting old friends and making new contacts at this year’s Fort Lauderdale show.
Our yard manager Bram Kooltjes and marketing manager Yoeri Bijker will be there throughout the week from Wednesday 31 October to Sunday 4 November.

The Van der Valk team is riding on the crest of a wave currently after a very successful show in Cannes, where we had the 25-metre Jangada and 27-metre explorer yacht Seawolf on display. These were both exceptionally well received, as have been our latest new launches, Nicostasia and Joy.

Hopefully clicking on the links for these new members of the Van der Valk fleet will inspire you to make concrete some of your own ideas. Or perhaps you have something completely new on your mind that you would like to touch base on?

Either way, we would love to meet up at FLIBS over a coffee or beer to discuss how we can combine our premium Dutch quality with your vision for sailing pleasure.

You don’t need us to tell you that the ‘Yachting Capital of the World” will be a busy place during the show so if you’d like to make an appointment in advance please email us on or give Yoeri a call on +31 626 888 980. You can also call during the show itself.

All the best

Dates: October 31 – November 4, 2018
