WHAT

500 boats worth about $1 billion, including motoryachts, sportfishing boats, trawlers and long-range passagemakers, express cruisers, high-performance sailboats and others. Plus, cruising and fishing seminars, and marine electronics and accessories exhibits. New this year: Superyacht Miami, a second show venue at Miami Beach Marina for superyachts over 154 feet, which are too big for the Indian Creek location, where at least 60 yachts over 100 feet will be on display.

WHERE

The main show venue is a mile-long stretch along Miami Beach’s Collins Avenue on Indian Creek, covering some 1.2 million square feet from 41st to 51st streets. New boats are at the south end of Collins, starting at 41st Street. The brokerage section stretches north from the Eden Roc Hotel. New and brokered sportfishing boats are in the 4900 block. Cruiser Port, where PassageMaker magazine’s TrawlerPort will display new and brokered long-range cruisers and host cruising seminars on Trawler Island, is in the 5000 block. Down East Cove, with its displays of Down East-style express cruisers and other yachts, is just north of TrawlerPort.
