Super Bowl Sunday is coming to Miami! As we cruise into a weekend of football fun, you may notice some changes in the South Florida and Miami area as the city prepares for the action ahead. Just read on as we take a closer look.

Cruising into town

If you’re cruising into town to soak up some of the Super Bowl fun, you’re not alone! In fact, one NFL team owner made quite a splash by rolling in on a $250 million-dollar super yacht, docked just in time for the football festivities. According to Sports Illustrated, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has reportedly brought his 357-foot yacht, the Bravo Eugenia, to Miami for some Super Bowl fun. According to Forbes, the super yacht (which is longer than a football field—something Jones knows lots about!) has a garage, luxury spa and other on-board amenities, enough to rival even the most glamorous hotels back on shore.

Of course, this is not the only super yacht we expect to see in town over Super Bowl weekend. While everyone’s daydreamed about a ride like this, we’re just happy to be on the water. As they say—“have boat, will travel!”

Inside the Super Bowl Safety Zone

Miami is already home to a lively boating scene—add to this the excitement of Super Bowl weekend, and officials expect it to be especially busy! Fortunately, the Coast Guard has established a new security zone that will run through Feb. 3. Spanning from the Venetian Causeway south toward the Miami River, this security zone will require boaters to cruise at a slow, cautious speed in the area. Plus, the Coast Guard has brought additional personnel to Miami waters to help keep boaters safe all weekend long.

(Tip: As always, put safety on your side this Super Bowl weekend and all year long! Keep an eye on your surroundings, ensure that your on-board safety essentials and lights are properly working, and maintain a steady speed when maneuvering around boats and other obstacles.)

On-the-water activities

This weekend may be all about football, but there is also plenty to do on the water! Head to your favorite offshore spot and enjoy a “game-winning” catch of your own, or swing by your favorite waterfront grill to catch the game al fresco.

You don’t need a ticket to the big game to enjoy this weekend on the water—or any weekend in South Florida, for that matter! If you’re on the market for boats for sale in West Palm Beach and the surrounding area, South Florida Yachts has you covered. Contact us today to learn more about finding your dream ride at a price you love!

Even after the Super Bowl crowds clear away, the excitement in Miami will be as alive as ever. The Miami International Boat Show is cruising into town on Feb. 13, and there are plenty of ways to enjoy show weekend fun, on and off the water!

Take a look below as we share five fast facts worth knowing as you prepare for the show.

The show takes place in a historic marine stadium

For avid boaters and history buffs alike, the setting of the Miami International Boat Show is a point of interest. The Miami Marine Stadium served as an important part of Miami’s burgeoning boating and water sports scene in the 60s, 70s and beyond, during which it served as a center of culture and on-the-water action. As a one-of-a-kind concert venue, it has even hosted the likes of Queen, The Who, Aretha Franklin and more!

While Hurricane Andrew damaged the stadium in 1992, it has since undergone restoration efforts and was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places. Its unique coastal environment makes it the perfect place to explore during show weekend.

There will be plenty of opportunities for international insights

Dreaming about cruising to a tropical getaway of your own? You’re in Miami, a center of cultural exchange, so there will be plenty of opportunities to explore unique flavors, cultures and cruising styles. You can also swing by seminars such as “Cruising in the Bahamas,” which will teach you everything you need to know about navigating the islands, familiarizing yourself with the local weather, finding choice cruising spots and much more.

Your dream boat awaits

Before the big journey, you need a boat of your own! It’s waiting to be discovered at this year’s show. Swing by South Florida Yachts to share in the boat show fun and browse the latest models, and to learn more about how we can find you the ideal ride (at a price you feel great about)!

Even kids can get in on the fun

Even young boaters and anglers can share in the boat show fun. “Fishing for Kids,” for example, is a great opportunity for kids to pick up helpful skills and learn how to care for the marine environment.

Opportunities abound for local thrills

Of course, you’ll want to do some Miami sightseeing while you are in the area! From beautiful Bayside Marketplace, to the lush, historical grounds of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, there are plenty of by-the-water vistas to explore very close to the boat show fun. You can enjoy a breezy trip aboard your own boat or, if you don’t already have one, hop on a complimentary water taxi and enjoy the view as you head to the show! If you’ve been browsing boats for sale in West Palm Beach and the surrounding area, you won’t want to miss out on this year’s show. Stop by to see South Florida Yachts during your visit, and feel free to call us any time to learn more about our wide selection of family fishing vessels, bay boats, center consoles and much more.

Looking for a premier boat show in West Palm Beach and the surrounding area? Head up the coast to beautiful Stuart, where the 2020 Stuart Boat Show is gearing up for a weekend of fun, fishing tips, and, of course, a chance to find the boat of your dreams.

Just read on as we share a brief guide on how to get the most out of this year’s show!

Learn more about landing the catch

One of the most rewarding parts of any boat show is the opportunity to learn more about the sport of boating and fishing—and the Stuart Boat Show is no exception! Plan to attend seminars like Surf Fishing for Pompano, Destinations & Navigation or even Teaching Kids to Save the Planet, plus many more. These seminars give you the chance to gain meaningful, first-hand insights from the experts—just like your favorite class at school, simply set against the backdrop of a beautiful boat show weekend.

Enjoy an offshore adventure

Of course, one of the most powerful ways to learn is to get out on the water and try something new! If you haven’t already fished Stuart’s offshore scene, this is a must-do destination for all anglers. Stuart is the Sailfish Capital of the World, so it’s the perfect place to try for the majestic, powerful fish alongside your go-to fishing crew. Catching a sailfish in Stuart is a photo-worthy achievement—but land the catch or not, your time on the water is something you’ll treasure long after show weekend is over!

Explore Stuart’s charming waterfront scene

Before or during the show, you will want to make time to explore Stuart’s charming Main Street. Characterized by beautiful buildings, one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants and, of course, the sweet scent of salty air, you will enjoy some time perusing this unique by-the-water destination.

Pick up a one-of-a-kind gift

The holiday season may be over, but who says you can’t still find the perfect gift—even if it’s for yourself? This year’s show will feature more than 175 exhibitors, including jewelers, marine accessory suppliers and many more—so pick out a cool keepsake to bring home or enhance your on-the-water experience!

Find the boat you’ve been dreaming of

Of course, our favorite gift has to be a new boat—and here at the Stuart Boat Show, you may find your very own! Whether you’re on the market for a center console, bay boat or a lux upgrade to your current ride, South Florida Yachts will be at the show to help you find exactly what you are looking for—at a price you can truly feel good about.
