FLIBS17: Miami show for yachts gets new name — again

ADVERTISEMENT

The in-water yacht brokerage show in Miami Beach has changed its name again.

Known for more than 25 years as the Yacht & Brokerage Show, the show’s owners changed the name in 2016 to Yachts Miami Beach.

Now the name has changed again, to the Miami Yacht Show @ Collins Avenue.

The 30th annual show runs Feb. 15-19 in the Indian Creek Waterway in front of some of Miami Beach’s most iconic hotels between 41st and 54th streets. The show is co-owned by the International Yacht Brokers Association and Show Management, which also produces the show.

The show will again include the Superyacht Miami location at Island Gardens Deep Harbour Marina on Watson Island, which plans to feature 20 yachts up to 500 feet in length. To view and board those vessels, make an appointment through an exhibitors or with Show Management.

Admission to the Miami Yacht Show @ Collins Avenue is $20 daily, $40 for preview day on Feb. 15. For more information, visit www.showmanagement.com.

The other Miami show grows

There is a second boat show being held at the same time in Miami — the 78th annual Miami International Boat Show. That show will once again be staged at the Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key. Thanks to the water surrounding the site, the sailing component of Strictly Sail Miami will join the show in 2018 for the first time in decades.

A 2017 study by Thomas J. Murray & Associates, in conjunction with the University of Florida, showed that the show has a statewide economic impact of $854.2 million, a 40 percent increase since the last study was conducted in 2013.

The show expects to feature nearly 700 boats in its deep-water basin, bringing the total boat count for the 2018 show to 1,400.

The show is owned and produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association. For more information, visit www.miamiboatshow.com.
