Miami International Boat Show

Miami boat show

Greatest Boat Show in the World

The Miami International Boat Show has been called the “Greatest Boat Show in the World.” The annual event is held every February at venues in downtown Miami and Miami Beach. The current venues include the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miamarina at Bayside, and the Sea Isle Marina and Yachting Center. The Miami Boat Show is produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), which has a membership of over 1,700 marine accessory and boat manufacturers. NNMA members are responsible for manufacturing over 80 percent of marine products used by United States boaters.

The Miami International Boat Show is the largest boat show in Florida. The show features not simply hundreds of boats but thousands of boats. Over 3,000 boats from all over the world appear for the show including yachts, fishing boats, sail boats, speed boats, powerboats, and more. Accompanying the thousands of boats are over 2,000 boat dealers and exhibitors. This boat show is considered the gold standard of boat shows and the best place to preview what is new in the world of boating for the coming year.

This event is much more than a show and a presentation of vendors handing out advertising and promotional materials. A variety of hands-on and learning opportunities are also available. Some of the top names in boating hold open seminars, clinics, workshops, and other activities. New this year is Dive & Travel Harbor, featuring diving equipment and personal scuba gear testing in a heated pool. The Big Game Room Sport Fishing Expo is available for those who prize fishing above all other boating activities. Sailing enthusiasts can stop by Strictly Sail at Miami Bayside. Free sailboat rides are offered by Discover Sailing and Latitudes & Attitudes will be around with their annual musical Bash.

Features for 2011
The Miami International Boat Show is the greatest event in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area. It is not all about advertising and promotional events. Several feature events promise to make the 2011 show the best yet. Some highlights of the new features at the 2011 event include the following:

Time Bandit
The Time Bandit is a 30-foot super-vee Phantom offshore racing boat sponsored by the captains of the Time Bandit fishing boat featured on the Deadliest Catch TV show. The boat will be driven by Bob Mazikowski and working as throttleman is Travis Lofland.

Russel Newberry
Russel Newberry served on the F/V Time Bandit on the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch. In 2009, he started on the Time Bandit, moved over to start working on the Wizard, and then started working on the Kodiak during the king crab season. Without a doubt he was the busiest deckhand of 2009. Newberry is schedule to appear at the Miami Beach Convention Center each day according to the following schedule:

• Thursday and Friday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
• Saturday – Monday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
