                                         Exhibitors at Miami Yacht Show Report Qualified Buyers and Sales

Boat buyers took to the docks from February 15-19 at the 30th annual Miami Yacht Show, garnering positive feedback from exhibitors about the enhanced show experience and the strong quality of sales leads. The annual event attracted a global audience to a spectacular display of yachts and marine products, including more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and the latest marine technology and accessories. For the third year, the show also included a display of superyachts on Watson Island at Island Gardens Deep Harbour marina, known as Superyacht Miami.

According to exhibitor Bob Denison, President and Founder of Denison Yachting, "The Miami Yacht Show was solid. We saw very strong numbers from Hatteras and a few deals at our brokerage display. I'm happy to also report a Sanlorenzo 112 sale that occurred on the docks over the weekend. We're very happy with results."
"Miami has a unique appeal as a destination for yacht buyers from around the nation and the world who enjoy attending the show at this prime time of year," said Andrew Doole, general manager of Informa, the Miami Yacht Show's co-owner and producer. "This year's show fared well overall in terms of operations, as well as exhibitor and attendee participation, and we now have exciting plans to support its continued growth."
The in-water yacht show, co-owned by Informa and the International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA), covered more than 1.2 million square feet of space from 41st Street to 54th Street along the Indian Creek Waterway. "We were fortunate to have beautiful weather and the caliber of the client was excellent," said IYBA Vice President Paul Flannery. "I had reports from several exhibitors that they enjoyed success and expect to see more business in the days to come as a result of their encounters at the show. The Miami Yacht Show remains one of the most important shows of the year and with changes for 2019 in the making, we expect it will continue to be critical show for the marine industry and new buyers."
For exhibitors with news to announce, the show provided a valuable platform for reaching buyers. "The 2018 Miami Yacht Show was the perfect place for the new RMK Merrill-Stevens to make its Miami debut. The show gave us the opportunity to reunite with loyal clients and expand relationships with new owners and vendors. We found that customers were eager to learn more about the growing strengths of the yacht industry in Miami," said, RMK Merrill-Stevens President and CEO Aaron Leatherwood. "We were also very excited to announce that we're adding a 100-ton lift this year, in addition to the state-of-the-art 2,700-ton shiplift that's under construction."
Noted Roger Moore, CEO of Nautical Ventures, which hosted the show's first ever AquaZone demonstration area, "This was our best show on Collins Avenue with our highest traffic count in the last three years. "From show set-up to sales, this year set the bar high. We had record sales with an over 80 percent sell- through rate, and we have more quality prospects for post-show follow-up than in previous years. We are very pleased."
Two different boat shows took place concurrently in Miami and Miami Beach during Presidents' Day weekend. Informa manages, produces and co-owns the Miami Yacht Show. The Miami International Boat Show on Virginia Key is owned and operated by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
"It was apparent that additional investments were made to make it easier to commute between the various locations of the show and provide options for an ultra-luxurious experience," said Sally Doleski, vice president of marketing at Ocean Alexander. "The Miami Yacht Show is becoming one of the most important shows for us as a yacht manufacturer and we're excited about all the future possibilities for growth."
Sunreef Yachts, which drew significant interest among potential buyers for its new Supreme 68 power catamaran, called it "a very quality show for us." Said company PR and Marketing Director Karolina Paszkiewicz, "We will definitely come back next year."
New Location
Informa Exhibitions has announced that the Miami Yacht Show will move in 2019 to the area located just north of downtown Miami where the Miami Herald building once stood and Sea Isle Marina is currently. The show's product mix will continue to feature new and brokerage yachts, with the added benefit of more on-land exhibit space for luxury components such as exotic cars and aircraft. Ease of access and proximity to the Miami International Boat Show (MIBS) will make it more convenient for attendees to experience both boat shows on one day than it has been since MIBS moved from the Miami Beach Convention Center to Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key in 2016.
The new Miami Yacht Show location, between the Venetian and MacArthur causeways provides vastly increased parking with approximately 3,500 spots. In addition, water taxi transportation will connect the 2019 Miami Yacht Show to Superyacht Miami at Island Gardens Deep Harbour marina.
New Dates
The 2019 Miami Yacht Show will run Wednesday, February 13 through Sunday, February 17. Previously, the show ran each year from Thursdaythrough Monday during Presidents' Day weekend.
