Miami Shows

The Miami shows, sponsored by The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), owners of the Miami International Boat Show, and Informa, co-owners of the Miami Yacht Show with International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA), say they have created the world's largest display of boats for sale.

The combined shows will bring nearly 2,000 boats, yachts and superyachts to Miami. The Miami International Boat Show will feature more than 1,400 new boats ranging in size from 10 feet to 100 feet, and the 31st annual Miami Yacht Show and Super Yacht Miami will feature more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and superyachts ranging from 40 feet to over 320 feet.

Show attendees will have access to the largest display of boats and yachts in the world, creating the five biggest days in boating, say show promoters. 

The Miami International Boat Show spans more than 90 acres, including 3.5 miles of docks, and features more than 1,100 exhibitors. More than 1,400 new boats ranging in size from 10 feet to 100 feet in length, including offshore fishing boats, high performance boats, motor yachts, family cruisers, watersports boats, sailboats, personal watercraft and more, will be available to view, board, and buy.

The show is also home to the largest selection of marine accessories and equipment with more than 500 exhibitors showcasing thousands of the latest marine technologies, gear, apparel, and fishing tackle, plus the newest engines from the world's leading brands.

The Miami Yacht Show covers nearly 60 acres with an increase of over 70% space on land. The new site boasts a massive 67,000 sq. ft. climate-controlled tent where more than 225 upland exhibitors can be on display. The Show hosts nearly 500 new and pre-owned yachts in-water, ranging from motor yachts and superyachts, to offshore fishing boats and superyacht tenders; 40 superyachts are expected at the 2019 show with vessels ranging in size from 40 feet to over 320 feet in length.

Boot 2019 Show

Almost 2,000 exhibitors from 73 countries will fill the 16 halls at the Boot 2019 exhibition site, and there will be 1,500 sailboats and motorboats on display.

Boot Düsseldorf is the only trade fair in the world that offers such variety in such depth, says the show management.   PSR
