Miami International Boat ShowCome February, Miami becomes the hot spot for hundreds of thousands looking to escape the winter blues, and the place to be for a host of high-profile events, including the Progressive® Insurance Miami International Boat Show. As one of the most attended and influential boating events in the world with an economic impact of $854 million, the iconic Miami Boat Show draws more than 100,000 people to the Magic City annually and provides an island oasis to enjoy the boating lifestyle.   

The 2019 Miami Boat Show, cruising into Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin February 14-18, promises an experience for buyers and dreamers alike, showcasing thousands of the newest boats and sailboats – from yachts and catamarans, to offshore fishing boats and family cruisers, plus the latest marine technology, gear and accessories from more than 1,000 exhibitors.

In addition to the thousands of boats and boating products for sale, 2019 Miami Boat Show highlights include plenty of opportunities to get out on the water – from test drives to boating lessons; an exclusive VIP experience with private access to the show’s VIP lounge; the return of Strictly Sail Miami; and top of the line food and beverage options.
