This list is a great companion to showgoers at the 2024 Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show. We’ve curated this fleet of boats so that you can more efficient;y get a chance to see the hottest new products, evincing the latest advancements in the boatbuilders art.
We’ve also included links to buy advance tickets to the show. We recommend you also consider purchasing a water taxi pass, as street traffic can be a bear (though show shuttles are pretty reliable at MIBS). Finally, we also recommend you download the free show app. It’s worth it.
