Get your mood boost by checking out these new boats at the 2024 Miami International Boat Show.
The 2024 Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show is the serotonin boost that every boater needs. If you live where the snow is currently keeping you off the water, the sea of boats and superyachts in sunny Miami gives hope that spring and a new boat are on the way.
Set for February 14-18, the Miami International Boat Show takes place at six locations in the Miami area. The main show is held at the Miami Beach Convention Center and Pride Park returning to South Beach in 2023 after temporarily relocating to Miami Marine Stadium. The in-water show is set for Herald Plaza and Venetian Marina in downtown Miami, Museum Park Marina, and SuperYacht Miami at Yacht Haven Grand Miami.
Wednesday is a preview day for the media and public, requiring an extra $21 for a Prime Time Preview ticket in addition to a single-day ticket ($43 per adult, $16.50 child) or a two-day pass ($75). The Superyacht Miami experience is a separate ticket and costs $135 per day. The boat show hours are Wednesday-Thursday, 10AM-6PM; Friday-Saturday, 10AM-7PM; and Sunday, 10AM-5PM.
South Florida’s traffic is notoriously bad, but the good news is that the show organizers, the National Marine Manufacturers Association and producer Informa Markets, provide an extensive shuttle bus and water taxi system between venues. There is also a free golf cart shuttle service at Maurice Gibb Park and Herald Plaza.
