Miami Boat Show 2023: Everything you need to know


The Miami Boat Show (or to give it its full name, the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show) is as glamorous and stylish as its host city.

Held every year in February, this is a key showcase for manufacturers to show off their latest models across four on-water locations and the recently revamped Miami Beach Convention Center and Pride Park.

It’s not just American brands either, with yards from all across the globe flocking to Florida to attract affluent showgoers.

When is the 2023 Miami Boat Show?

This year’s event will take place from Wednesday February 15 to Sunday February 19.

The show opens each day at 10am and closes in the evening at 6pm on Wednesday on Thursday, 7pm on Friday and Saurtday, and 5pm on Sunday. However the legendary Miami parties go on long into the small hours.

How much are 2023 Miami Boat Show tickets?

Standard day tickets start at $40 per adult and $15 per child, but due to the size of the show, it’s well worth investing $70 in a two-day ticket.

Wednesday is press preview day, so if you want to be among the first to step aboard the world premieres, then you’ll need to pay an extra $20 for a Prime Time Preview ticket.

Furthermore, the Superyacht Miami experience at Island Gardens requires a separate ticket, priced at $125 for Thurs-Sun or $150 for Weds-Sun.

Or if you really want to push the boat out, you can buy a Windward VIP ticket for $375, which includes exclusive entry into the Windward VIP Clubs, a private concierge to book appointments, an open bar, food, and complimentary access to the Boat Show water taxi.
