Yacht Magic

An insider’s guide to getting the most out of the Miami International Boat Show Since not everyone has the same taste in boats, Miami has not one but two boat shows taking place the same weekend. If you’re being picky, you could say it actually has three shows, each at a separate location. From trailerable runabouts to magnificent superyachts, plus a flotilla of sailboats, this weekend truly has something for everyone. To make it even better, these shows also feature stunning collections of food, clothing, accessories, art, music and endless photo opps for the entire family.
