It also marked the 75th anniversary for the Miami show, the largest of the NMMA boat shows in America. For many years, the show had been centered at the Miami Beach Convention Centre in the South Beach area, but changes at that venue required the show to relocate.
Held for the first time at the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin, the waterfront site was right at home against the backdrop of Biscayne Bay and Miami’s sparkling skyline. Show organizers announced that the show recorded 100,279 attendees, up by 4 percent over the 2015 show.
Canadian Yachting’s John Armstrong and Andy Adams met with many of our key boating industry associates, viewing a number of important new models and also shooting video tours of the new MJM Yachts 50Z, the new Beneteau Swift 30 and the Jeanneau Leader 46. Look for these and other exciting new boats and products that made their debut at Miami in 2016!
