Coming up on its second year as “Yachts Miami Beach,” the 2017 edition of what was formerly known as the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show promises to be even bigger and better than last year!
The 2017 boating event is set to take place February 16-20 on Collins Avenue, across from the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels. Co-owners of the show, Show Management and the International Yacht Brokers Association, have engaged the services of EDSA to create a new environment and experience for attendees of Yachts Miami Beach 2017. EDSA, a “space planning” design, and architecture firm, is known for creating unique environments for venues ranging from Atlantis in the Bahamas to the Dubai Opera House.
In a statement to the press, Dane Graziano, senior vice president and COO for Show Management, said, “EDSA has translated our vision for engagement between exhibitors and buyers into a new, strategic and aesthetically pleasing design for Yachts Miami Beach. We have expanded show marketing this year to share our excitement about this great new experience planned for Miami Beach boat show weekend in February.”
Miami Yacht Show Details
As always, “Yachts Miami Beach,” takes place during the same weekend as the “Miami International Boat Show,” which is often cause for confusion. But this is, and always has been a distinct show.
As last year, Yachts Miami Beach 2017 will span more than a mile along Collins Avenue from 41st Street to 54th Street. Attendees enter through five artfully designed show entrances, each with attractive wayfinding graphics and an information booth. Entry to the show is $20 per person per day. New for this year, guests can arrive at the show aboard water taxis, connected to new, convenient parking locations.
EDSA’s new look has been “designed to create an interactive and inviting sales environment for exhibitors and buyers.” Unlike last year, yachts will now be arranged in dedicated “new” and “brokerage” sections, making it easier to find specific boats.
For its second year, Yachts Miami Beach will feature a display of superyachts at Island Gardens Deep Harbour on Watson Island, located on I- 395/MacArthur Causeway. This invitation-only “show within a show,” known as Super Yacht Miami, will feature some of the boat show’s largest yachts. Interested guests can make appointments for yacht tours by contacting exhibitors with displays at the venue or Show Management. More than 20 superyachts will be on display at this location, which can accommodate yachts up to 500 feet.
What to Expect from 26 North at Yachts Miami Beach 2017
26 North Yachts will of course be on hand at Yachts Miami Beach 2017. As of now, we will be showcasing two spectacular motor yachts from our brokerage inventory: Big E, a prime example of Ocean Yachts’ reputation for beauty and power, and one of our latest listings, Checkmate, an 85 foot Burger Yacht that combines the classic elegance of a yacht built in 1999, with modern upgrades that make her truly timeless.
