Miami hosts two shows

ADVERTISEMENT

Around the world boaters know of the Miami boat show. But most of them don’t realize there are two Miami shows. Both the Yacht and Brokerage Show and the Miami International Boat Show and Strictly Sail take place at the same time.

 

The megayachts and their support businesses are at the Yacht and Brokerage Show, which is mostly on the docks between 41st Street and 51st Street alongside Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. This is the 24th annual edition of the show, which was founded by the Florida Yacht Brokers Association. FYBA still owns the show, but is in partnership with Show Management to produce it.

 

The show also includes TrawlerPort and seminars at the north end of the show, with trawlers, built for long-term cruising ranging from 35 to 90 feet.

 

The docks of the Yacht and Brokerage show are free and open to the public. These yachts range in size from tenders to the 200-foot Benetti M/Y Diamonds Are Forever. The first show was held in 1989 with 56 boats, the largest a 114-foot Broward. This year’s show includes 500 new and pre-owned boats worth more than a billion dollars.

 

The other show is the Miami International Boat Show, which is produced by the National MarineManufacturers Association (NMMA) and located in the Miami Beach Convention Center. In-water displays are located at Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center and Miamarina at Bayside, where the Strictly Sail portion of the show is held.

 

There were 50 exhibitors at the first Miami International Boat Show in 1941; this year there are more than 2,000. Tickets are $35 today, $20 Friday through Monday.

 

All the shows sites are connected by shuttle buses and water taxis. The show runs from at 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Monday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
