The 2018 Miami International Boat Showwill be held Feb. 15-19 at the iconic Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin and for the first time in decades will be joined by its sailing counterpart, Strictly Sail Miami. As a result, the five biggest days in boating will join together at Miami Marine Stadium, becoming easier to access than ever before.
With the addition of sailboats and catamarans, as well as more powerboats, the show will feature nearly 700 boats in its extensive deep water basin, bringing the total boat count for the 2018 show to 1,400 new boats available for purchase. Set within Miami Marine Stadium, the show features one of the most scenic views in the country overlooking Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami, making it a beloved destination for approximately 100,000 boating enthusiasts.
To create a custom, specific experience for the sailing community, sailboats and catamarans will be featured in an exclusive area in-water. In addition, sailing accessories, sailing-related travel and charter experiences, and other sail-focused booth displays, will be located in a dedicated sail area on land, providing a cohesive experience for attendees and exhibitors.
