Default Boat show of choice - Miami or Ft Lauderdale???

Looking to experience a top rated boat show amongst the industry, Based on your experience or expert knowledge, which of the two would you chose to attend? Are they two different shows depending on your boating type, style, lifestyle, etc? I just dont know enough about the two. I have been on their websites.

Thanks.

Really two different shows. If you plan ahead you can do both reasonably.

If you go go to lauderdale, a lot in Miami will seem to be a lot more affordable lol.

Miami was always the boat show of choice in my opinion but I think lauderdale show is taking over . Not a lot of performance boats in Lauderdale but its a massive show .

Thanks guys....I'm going to try to visit Miami. While all the yachts are nice in Ft Lauderdale, the eye candy for me is in the go fast lane.....

If you want to see any go fast/ performance boats, Miami for sure. Miami also has the huge yacht show going at the same time which is always fun to see.
