Brokerage show to remain in Miami Beach with new name

ADVERTISEMENT

Several changes are in the works for two annual boat shows that take place February 11-15 in South Florida. One has been renamed, the other is preparing a new location.

The show in Miami Beach, formerly known as the Yacht & Brokerage Show, is now Yachts Miami Beach in an effort to highlight the same location, but to separate it from Miami International Boat Show.

The Miami show, owned by National Marine Manufacturers Association is scheduled to move from the Miami Beach Convention Center to Marine Stadium Park on Key Biscayne.

Yachts Miami Beach is an in-water show now in its 28th year, that is held along more than a mile of the Indian Creek Waterway at Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. Produced by Show Management and co-owned with Florida Yacht Brokers, the show was originally created to showcase brokerage and previously owned boats, said Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III, CEO of Show Management.

“We have co-existed peacefully for 28 years,” Zimbalist said at a press conference at Miami Beach City Hall on Dec. 9.

Yachts Miami Beach will also include yachts at Island Gardens on Watson Island. The marina, Island Gardens Deep Harbour, has completed their docks and is running fuel and electric lines.
