The Scoop | Week of February 13

Florida claims many premier boat and yacht shows, but none outdoes the newly reimagined Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show in scope and size. After combining Miami’s annual boat and yacht shows into one grand event, organizers are ready to dazzle crowds at multiple venues throughout the city from February 14-18. With Florida’s suitable climate and proximity to the Bahamas, boating has always been popular here. The demand for luxury experiences on the water as well as coveted boat slips has only increased with the influx of residents looking to enjoy the good life. ONE Sotheby’s International Realty would like to invite homeowners who would like state-of-the-art marinas with ample dockage and deep-water slips to tour our exclusive developments such as St. Regis Residences, Miami and Pier Sixty-Six Residences in Fort Lauderdale. Please enjoy our guide for this incredible boat show and local hospitality tips to enhance your experience.

Superyachts

Among motor yachts, semi-custom models and a sailing vessel, Akyacht’s (2021) 85-meter Victorious with a helipad and baby grand piano measures the largest. Azimut’s eco-minded Magellano 30M and Benetti’s Oasis 34 named Grateful are making global debuts. Having its U.S. premiere, the Solaris Power 52 Open serves as the ideal cruiser with options for three deck layouts and two cabins, plus an outdoor grill upgrade.

 
 
 

Fishing & Fun

Several mainstays and niche brands are unveiling new models. Anglers can turn fish tales into reality with Pursuit’s latest Dual Console (DC) 306; World Cat’s 235 Tournament Edition, and Grady-White’s Freedom 415, the largest outboard powered dual console. Considering Florida claims the wakeboarding capital of the world, Regal’s 38 Surf with dual Volvo Forward Drives—the largest wakesurf boat—should go over well here.

 
 
 

Experiences & Products

The Progressive Boat Show Experience pops up in Pride Park with a historic port theme. Always a crowd favorite, the Nautical Ventures AquaZone features a 40,000-gallon, 60’ x 30’ freshwater pool for Aquabanas demonstrations. Dine, attend educational seminars and play complimentary pickleball. Find Yamaha’s hydrogen-powered outboard engine and Miami-based 180Mask’s Moflow+ fog-free snorkel mask among hot prototypes and products, respectively.

Guests of Palm Beach’s Brazilian Court Hotel can enjoy complimentary, two-hour group cruises (daily) as well as private cruises for a fee (Thursday-Sunday) aboard its Solaris 44, BC ONE.
