Statement from Show Management regarding the Biscayne Bay Army Corps Sea Grass Mitigation Project

January 23, 2014

The expansion of the Port of Miami has generated a sea grass mitigation project in Biscayne Bay that has the effect of narrowing a pathway for boats attending the upcoming Yacht & Brokerage Show on Collins Avenue to approximately 70 feet. We are continuing to work with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Miami to mitigate this issue. Show Management also has identified alternative, longer routes for boats to enter and leave the show and is reaching out to exhibitors with specific instructions. For those boats that choose to take the narrowed route, guide and tug boats will be on hand to assist them. We are happy to announce that the 2014 show is sold out with a waiting list, so buyers should have the best ever selection of boats to purchase or charter.

 

About the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach

In addition to the remarkable display of yachts, the free show offers floating cocktail barges and live musical entertainment.
