Default Miami 2018 International Boat Show

.


Don't know why, but when the New Year comes, I think about the Miami International Boat show

Who's going....where you staying ?

What in particular are you hoping to see?

We will be staying in South Beach for a couple weeks that coincide with the show. I will have a rental car but would imagine parking is a *****, having never been, how far is the venue from SB? Uber? Taxi? Is it walking distance? It was 20 below 0 when I woke up this morning, Florida is definitely calling my name!!

will be getting less of I/O s and Sport Vees , Every year for the past 10 years has been declining for those applications. 2018 will be very few. One will see outboards in very large numbers. Even installed on 40 ft and down cruiser boats. Wakeboard boats have been increasing in numbers at the show as well. CC boats will be the most in numbers to look at.

Take Uber to Bayside or the AAA arena and take the water taxi from there. We stay in Sobe(even tho we live 33 miles away) and use this process and it works well.

Water taxi or Uber over. They have an Uber lot (pickup/drop off) and a shuttle that will take you to and from the show. We usually go early and the uber drops us off at the gate, before traffic gets heavy.

Staying at Fountainebleu and will be at Mercury's booth Friday morning to see if we get anything bigger/better than the 400R for '18. Will probably spend the rest of the trip near the hotel and the in-water yacht display across the street.
