Strictly Sail will move to Miami Marine Stadium in 2018

The Strictly Sail Miami show will join the Miami International Boat Show at Miami Marine Stadium from Feb. 15-19 as one show next year, bringing nearly 100 sailboats to the venue’s deepwater basin.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said in a news release that they expect more than 700 boats in the water and on land when the two shows come together. Strictly Sail was previously held at Miamarina at Bayside.

“The decision to combine these two iconic events is due in large part to feedback from sail and power exhibitors and attendees for a single streamlined experience that encompasses all our industry has to offer,” Ben Wold, executive vice president of NMMA and show manager for the Progressive Miami International Boat Show, said in a statement.

“As the largest retailer of catamarans in the United States, the Miami show has for us become the premier catamaran show in the U.S., with more catamarans on display than any other show,” said Hugh Murray, president of The Catamaran Co., which has its most successful boat show in its 28-year history last year. “The 2017 show covered the entire range of catamarans from 30 feet all the way up to 77 feet, the first time this had ever been seen at any U.S. boat show, and the growth of this market sector is showing no signs of slowing down.”
