The Latest and Greatest in Boating, Fishing, Sailing, Paddle Boarding, Diving...

Cruising Boats, Racing Boats, Sailing Boats, Catamarans, Power Boats, Mega Yachts... all in lovely South Florida weather, no wonder everyone is flocking to the Miami Boat Show, one of the largest of its kind and one you don't want to miss if you are a boating enthusiast.

Miami Boat Show

This is quite an impressive 5-day event which in 2016 moved to its new fantastic dig at the Miami Marine Stadium in Virginia Key just across the Bay from downtown Miami. This iconic and historical site has undergone a major renovation.

StrictlySail, remains at Miamarina in Bayside as in previous years. And like before, free shuttle service and water taxis will be provided between the two venues and major hotels and key sites in Miami, Brickell and Coconut Grove areas, and the Miami Beach Marina (water taxi only)

The closed and open-air tents and pavillions are being set up to house the "trade show" part where you will find the finest in maritime products assorted per categories i.e. boats, engines, marine accessories and electronics, sport fishing, gifts and apparel, services and of course the retail pavillions.

And due to its new location on the water, just beyond the trade show exhibits are the Demo Docks, a great new feature that will house more than 150 vessels in the water for demonstrations and sea trials. Check out and "test drive" before you buy!

Besides all the serious boat eye candy, the Miami Boat Show offers many hands-on activities, open to the public, pros and beginners. There are seminars, boating clinics and sailing lessons, so just get in the water, there's no better way to enjoy the bay!

Literally hundreds of one, two and three-hour seminars on topics from basic docking skills, helmsmanship, anchoring, newcomer powerboaters, etc.
