Prepare Your Sails for the Miami International Boat Show

MIAboatShow-1Miami Beach has become something of a boater’s paradise.  With the barrier island’s nearness to Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, residents and guests can frequently spot vessels of varying sizes navigating the waters and exploring the sparkly seas. In fact, guests of the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach can see some of these boats when staying in one of the rooftop terrace suites.  Miami Beach is also next door to the Port of Miami, home to many large scale cruise ships.

With Miami and Miami Beach’s penchant for attracting seafarers, the Miami International Boat Show attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees.  A showcase of catamarans, luxury yachts, personal watercrafts, sailboats, and many more types of boating vessels, the annual event has typically been held at the Miami Beach Convention Center but this 2016 version is changing things up a bit.  Instead, the boat show will take place at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin in Virginia Key, located next door to Miami and the island community of Key Biscayne.

Those attending the 2016 Miami International Boat Show will find more than 1,000 unique boats on the water as well as on land.  Sailing fans will also find a tent featuring a number of distinct exhibits plus various gifts, gear and accessories for sale.

Miami International Boat Show kicks off on February 11th and continues for five days.  Virginia Key is less than thirty minutes away from our Miami Beach hotel and it is one of the best ways to complement your visit to the show. We have 79 inviting suites plus a collection of amenities to make your stay wonderfully timeless. Call 1.877.688.4232 to book a stay at our South Beach hotel.
