YMB17: Miami hosts two boat shows this week

ADVERTISEMENT

Relocation, expansions, renaming and redesigns have caused a bit of confusion regarding the “Miami boat show”.

Actually, there are two boat shows taking place in Miami this week: the 29th edition of the in-water brokerage show on Collins Avenue now called Yachts Miami Beach, and the 76th installment of the Miami International Boat Show, relocated last year from the Miami Beach Convention Center to the Miami Marine Stadium Park on Virginia Key.

Most of the large crewed yachts are displayed at Yachts Miami Beach, which added another location for even larger yachts at Island Gardens Deep Harbor marina on Watson Island, just off the southern tip of Miami Beach. (Honestly, we’re not trying to make this confusing.)

This show was founded by the Florida Yacht Brokers Association, now called the International Yacht Brokers Association, and is co-owned with Show Management, which produces it.

The show has been redesigned with limited entry points in an effort to get people off the sidewalk along Collins and more into the show. There is also a $20 charge to enter the previously free show.

The other show is the Miami International Boat Show, which is owned and produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association and relocated to Virginia Key last year. It has additional in-water vessels at Strictly Sail at Miamarina in Bayside Marketplace. Tickets for adults are $40 today, $25 Friday through Monday.

All the shows’ sites are connected by shuttle buses and water taxis.
