The Miami Boat Show started Thursday and runs until Monday in downtown Miami at various locations including Sea Isle Marina, Bayside, and the Miami convention center. The show includes a Strictly Sail section featuring Passport, Hylas, Jeanneau, Catalina, Beneteau, and a few more. This year returns to the traditional location at Bayside which allows deeper drafting, higher clearance sailboats in. As expected manufacturers have brought fewer yachts and vendors are sparser. I love the openness of the internet and by perusing the chat boards, you can read a dock level report on not only this year’s Miami Show but comparisons between Miami and other shows as well as opinions of the offerings seen at Miami. One particular thread on Sailnet is a fun read detailing a few attendees thoughts.
