2018 marks the show’s third year at Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin.

Strictly Sail Miami has moved from its long-time location at Miamarina at Bayside to join the rest of the show at Miami Marine Stadium and Park. Now, the show will feature 660 boats in its deep-water basin, bringing the total boat count for the 2018 show to 1,400 new boats available for purchase. Also includes an exhibit tent.

A  2017 study by Thomas J. Murray & Associates, in conjunction with the University of Florida, showed that the Miami Boat Show has an annual economic impact of $854.2 million, a 40% increase of $257.2 million since the last study was conducted in 2013.

Additional insights from the 2017 economic impact study include:

  • Labor income for the approximately 6,000 full time jobs totaled $289.6 million
  • As a result of the show, the state of Florida was paid approximately $56.9 million in sales and excise taxes
  • Out of town visitors to the show and exhibitors spend around $53 million in the local area on hotels, restaurants, retail shops, entertainment and transportation
  • Florida exhibitors alone, sell approximately $350 million in marine products at the show each year
