The Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach and the Miami International Boat Show will have you dreaming about a new season and a new pride and joy
The February boat shows in South Florida hold a special place in the hearts of boaters from areas where the season doesn’t run 365 days a year. The Miami International Boat Show and the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach, which run Feb. 13-17, provide a merciful escape to warm sunshine and balmy breezes when many folks have reached a breaking point.

This is my second go-round with Soundings. I spent about five years in Essex, Conn., in the mid- to late-1990s, mostly as a staff writer and then as managing editor for the final year. We wore flip-flops and shorts to work. We mapped out editorial calendars on midmorning drives for coffee.
Ahhh, Miami. Is there ever a bad time to go? If you’re a boat nut, it’s hard to beat mid-February, when the Miami International Boat Show and the Yacht & Brokerage Show (pictured) come to town.
