Over 100,000 boating buffs from around the world are expected to attend the Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show this year. Set for February 16 to 20, at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin, this year’s show features several new facets.
“This year we are going to even greater lengths to ensure that attendees to the 2017 Miami International Boat Show have a world class experience,” says Ben Wold, executive vice president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and manager of the 2017 Miami International Boat Show. “Attendees can expect to browse and board over 1300 boats, with 550 in-water and take advantage of our sea trial program where interested shoppers can take the boat of their dreams for a spin in Miami’s open waters. This year’s show will also feature enhanced food and beverage options, ample parking, and seamless transportation via water taxi and shuttle bus to and from Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin. Another highlight to the 2017 show is the addition of Pier 9, which will accommodate more than 100 new luxury yachts for sale, making the Miami Boat Show one of the largest yachting exhibitions in the country. There is definitely more to do and love at this year’s show.” www.miamiboatshow.com
