If you feel the need to escape the cold fronts sweeping your part of the country point your bow south to Miami, where one of the most spectacular boat shows in the country powers up February 13-17. The Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show features more than 3,000 boats and 2,000 companies from around the world in 3 locations—the Miami Beach Convention Center, the Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center and Miamarina at Bayside. The 26th Annual Yacht & Brokerage Show takes place during the same timeframe. As a global show, many builders use Miami as a venue to debut their most exciting (hot) new models.
