The Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach is the venue to head to for viewing the largest power yachts during the Miami Beach Boat Show. Located along Miami Beach’s Collins Avenue, the display includes yachts and superyachts from the world’s most extraordinary custom boat builders. The show is free and open to the public.
In addition to the spectacle of superb yachts, the Yacht Equipment Pavilion and Sportfishing Pavilion will showcase the latest in marine gear, electronics and gadgets and host International Game Fish Association seminars. Other highlights include the Aquariva Gucci, a product of the collaboration between Gucci, Riva and Officina Italiana Design, which marks Gucci’s 90th anniversary year in 2011. New to the show layout is Megayacht Row, 20 slips featuring a collection of the biggest boats in the show, boasting the latest technology and design from the world’s premier yacht builders.
More than 500 new and pre-owned vessels valued at more than a billion dollars will sprawl over a mile-long strip of the Indian Creek Waterway along Collins Avenue (S.R. A1A) from 41st to 51st Streets, situated directly across from landmark hotels such as the Fontainebleau, Eden Roc and Miami Beach Resort and Spa. Parking, which fills up early, is available around the show area between 64th and 85th Streets and Collins Avenue. Valet parking will be available from the east side of Collins Avenue in front of the city parking lot on the 4600 block.
