Yachts Miami Beach boat exhibit attracts massive numbers

Yachts Miami Beach attracted more yacht enthusiasts and larger vessels during their run from 11th to 15th February, said the organizers on Wednesday.

The show, earlier known as Yacht & Brokerage Show, drew in 5% more vessels on showcase, including twenty-two yachts over hundred-fifty feet long. The number is double compared to previous year, as per Show Management that co-owns the event with Florida Yacht Brokers Association.
In a press release, Show Management chief operating officer and senior vice president Dave Graziana stated that the combination of strong demand for huge yachts as well as the presence of international buyers who love coming to the Miami Beach to shop for boats made this the biggest event ever.
Hotel room nights specifically related to the show were up 2.24 percent over last year, according to the show’s official travel partner, BoatShowHotels.com. The average length of stay increased slightly to 4.42 nights.
