Boats abound for Miami Yacht Show and Miami boat show

ADVERTISEMENT

It’s boats and more boats in Miami during February with two shows that run Feb. 15-19.

Most yacht captains and crew are on board at the Miami Yacht Show, a collection of brokerage and new yachts in the Indian Creek Waterway along Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. That show is co-owned and produced by the International Yacht Brokers Association and Show Management.

Walking area has doubled with 5,000 feet of new docks, and upgrades to equipment are valued at about $7 million, according to Andrew Doole, vice president/general manager of Show Management Informa. There will be 14 buses and tenders to take visitors between Collins Avenue and Island Gardens.

Larger yachts are on display at Island Gardens Deep Harbour along the MacArthur Causeway in Miami, in a section of the show branded as Super Yacht Miami. M/Y Here Comes the Sun, a 245-foot Amels, is the largest and will be joined by about four more yachts over 200 feet.

The other show is the Miami International Boat Show at the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin on Virginia Key in Miami. It runs at the same time. National Marine Manufacturers Association, which owns and runs the event, expects 1,400 boats representing more than 175 brands on land and in the water.

This year will see increased collaboration between the shows, with more shuttles for attendees to travel between both shows. For more information on Miami Yacht Show visit www.miamiyachtshow.com, and for the Miami International Boat Show visit www.miamiboatshow.com.
