The Yachting Lifestyle

The Miami Yacht Show and Miami Super Yacht Show made a lot of waves this year, literally and figuratively.

After 30 years located along the intracoastal on Collins Avenue, The Miami Yacht Show moved from Miami Beach to a new location in downtown Miami on Biscayne Bay between MacArthur Causeway and Venetian Causeway.

The show’s new 60-acre exhibition complimented the display of hundreds of yachts with pop-up luxury retail, guest lounges and bars, exotic cars, private aircraft and special events.

Ulysse Nardin, drawing inspiration from its marine heritage, was the official timekeeper during the show and had coveted timepieces on display in the Windward VIP Lounge.

Chateau d’Esclan’s Whispering Angel Rose wine was the official rose wine for the weekend.

The new location is closer to the Miami Yacht Show’s satellite display of superyachts known as Superyacht Miami at Island Gardens Deep Harbour Marina on Watson Island.  Water taxis were provided to transport VIPS from one show to the other in true tropical style with the downtown Miami skyline in the background with the sun shining overhead.

Standouts from this year’s two shows included a variety of yacht classifications.

There were 500 yachts on display in 3 marina sites.

The most over-the-top yachts on the market from 90 to over 320 feet of pure elegance were showcased in Miami.
