At Starboard Yacht Group, this is the time of year when we start getting excited about an event that will attract numerous visitors to the greater Miami area: the 2015 Miami International Boat Show. As a provider of yacht services in Fort Lauderdale, FL, the Boat Show is one of the most important events on our annual calendar, and this year’s festivities should be better than ever.
Known as one of the biggest and best boat shows in the world, this year’s event will take place February 12-16 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Sea Isle Marina and Miamarina at Bayside Marketplace, and one ticket provides admission to all three sites as well as access to free shuttle and water taxi service between the venues. More than 3,000 boats and 2,000 exhibitors are scheduled to appear, and the event provides a great opportunity to get acquainted with the latest and greatest innovations in boating, from vessels and accessories to apparel and gift items. Some of the products for sale include marine electronics, dock equipment and accessories, water and paddle sports equipment, safety products and more. You’ll also be able to learn about some of the many services available to boat owners and boating enthusiasts. There’s plenty to see and do, regardless of your level of experience in boating.
Naturally, the opportunity to buy a new boat rarely gets better than at the Miami International Boat Show. Aside from the sheer number of boats on display, the Boat Show gives prospective buyers a chance to interact with dealers and manufacturers to gain additional information about particular vessels. The fact that many dealers will be offering special pricing should also appeal to potential buyers.
In addition to all of the great new boats and state-of-the-art gear on display, the Miami International Boat Show also provides a wide variety of educational opportunities geared toward boaters of all ages and levels of expertise. There will be several sessions allowing for one-on-one time with a boat technician, as well as numerous seminars on boat maintenance, safety and repairs.
Another exciting feature of this year’s Boat Show is the opportunity to receive hands-on training from the experts with Discover Boating, who will be taking groups out on the water to learn more about the techniques and strategies involved in operating a boat. Particularly for those who learn best through experience, as well as visual learners, this can be an excellent chance to gain a better understanding of some of the ins and outs of boating.
The Miami International Boat Show is expected to draw more than 100,000 boaters to the area, so if you’re interested in attending, it might not be a bad idea to start planning ahead. The Boat Show’s website offers useful tips related to accommodations, travel planning and general information about Miami, as well as a full rundown of exhibitors, event schedules and ticket information.
