MIAMI BEACH – The Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach, Miami’s premier in-water yacht show, is set for February 13-17 and will attract thousands of people from around the world to a spectacular display of yachts and marine products, directly across Collins Avenue from the legendary Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels in the heart of Miami Beach. Show inventory, which includes more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and a wide array of the latest marine technology and accessories, is valued at more than $1 billion. In addition to the remarkable display of yachts, the free show offers floating cocktail barges and live musical entertainment.  Covering more than 1.2 million square feet of space, the show spans more than a mile-long strip of the Indian Creek Waterway from 41st Street to 52nd Street.

New to this year’s show is Superyacht Miami for yachts over 47 meters in length, located at the Miami Beach Marina. While there will be more than 60 yachts over 100 feet at the Yacht & Brokerage Show on Collins Avenue, the new show location was added to accommodate yachts too large for the Indian Creek Waterway.  The Miami Beach Marina accommodates superyachts up to 250 feet and is located at 300 Alton Road, adjacent to Government Cut, with no fixed bridges and plenty of deep water. Luxury transportation will be provided between the marina and the Yacht & Brokerage Show on Collins Avenue through associated yacht brokerages.

Attendees will have many parking choices connected by a convenient, fast and reliable motor coach system. The free motor coach service will begin at 9 a.m., one hour prior to the start the show, and run until 9 p.m., two hours after the show’s closing. Motor coaches will transport attendees from the show’s many designated parking locations to drop off and pick up locations at the center, north and south ends of the show along Collins Avenue.

The Yacht & Brokerage Show also offers free shuttle service to and from two of the Miami International Boat Show sites: the Miami Beach Convention Center and Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center. Shuttle service to both locations begins at 9 a.m. and concludes at 9 p.m. daily.  While the Miami International Boat Show’s convention center location closes at 7 p.m. daily, the Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center location closes daily at 6 p.m. The last bus from the Yacht & Brokerage Show to the Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center leaves Collins Avenue at 5 p.m., and the last bus from Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center to the Yacht & Brokerage Show leaves at 7 p.m.
