More than 500 boats and yachts, including many megayachts, will be showcased at the annual Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami this winter.
The show, from February 14 to 18, is held concurrently with the Miami International Boat Show, but operated separately. It spans a good length of Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. Many of the exhibitors’ displays are therefore easily spotted from the sidewalk. To make it easier to navigate the docks, Show Management, the organizer, created the MyBoatShow app. It’s available for free for both iPhone and Android smartphones.
Mostly brokerage megayachts will be on display, but a few new ones will be, too. Among the latter are Diva, the NISI 2400GT (pictured at top); the latest Pacific Mariner 85 from Westport Shipyards; the Ocean Alexander 120; CDM’s Percheron; and the Mangusta 165 Misunderstood (directly above). Brokerage yachts include Trinity Yachts’ Relentless, Citadel’s Miss Lisa, the Northcoast 125, and Christensen Shipyards’ Atlantica.
Further available for viewing by appointment, but not in the show, is Sunreef Yachts’ Houbarra. The catamaran’s mast is too high for the yacht to cross under the bridges leading to where the show is staged.
