|MIAMI BEACH (Feb. 5, 2016) – For more than 28 years, Yachts Miami Beach has set the stage for a legendary yachting event where yacht brokers connect with buyers and where yacht builders from around the world introduce new models and designs to a global audience.
Covering more than 1.2 million square feet of space, the show spans more than a mile-long strip of the Indian Creek Waterway from 41st Street to 54th Street along Collins Avenue across from the legendary Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels. Formerly known as the Yacht & Brokerage Show, the show will feature some of the finest yachts in the world from Feb. 11 through Feb. 15.
“There’s no better place than Miami Beach for yacht builders to present their new designs to a sophisticated global audience,” said Dane Graziano, Chief Operating Officer for Show Management, the company that produces Yachts Miami Beach and co-owns the show with the Florida Yacht Brokers Association. “International buyers love Miami Beach. It’s one of the top trendsetting destinations in the world and people who love luxury and style feel comfortable here.”
