28th Annual Yachts Miami Beach Set for Feb. 11-15 on Collins Avenue

YMB Newsletter StoryMIAMI (Dec. 9, 2015) – Yachts Miami Beach, formerly known as the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach, is set to take place Feb.11-15, 2016, along Collins Avenue across from the legendary Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels, a location it has called home for 28 years.

Two different boat shows take place in Miami and Miami Beach during Presidents’ Day weekend in February. Show Management produces Yachts Miami Beach and co-owns it with the Florida Yacht Brokers Association. It is completely separate from the Miami International Boat Show, which is owned by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Known as Miami Beach’s premier in-water luxury yacht show, Yachts Miami Beach attracts thousands of people from around the world to a spectacular display of yachts and marine products, including more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and a wide array of the latest marine technology and accessories, valued at more than $1 billion. In addition to the remarkable display of yachts, the show offers floating cocktail lounges, food and live musical entertainment.

Covering more than 1.2 million square feet of space, Yachts Miami Beach spans more than a mile-long strip of the Indian Creek Waterway from 41st Street to 54th Street along Collins Avenue.
