Supersized and reimagined, the 2022 Miami International Boat Show served up a veritable banquet of new boat launches. Boating New Zealand’s Craig Ritchie was there to see it all first-hand.

In the face of plummeting covid infection rates, a new ownership structure, new event features and all-new venues including a return to South Beach, expectations ran high for the 2022 Miami International Boat Show (MIBS). In spite of some breezy weather on opening day, the show did not disappoint, with a surge of new product launches helping to attract an estimated 100,000 visitors over its five-day run.

This year’s event – the first under a new management agreement between the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show producer Informa Markets – now includes the formerly separate Miami Yacht Show and Superyacht Miami events under a common Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show banner. With four in-water venues, plus the newly-renovated Miami Beach Convention Centre, the 2022 MIBS was by far the largest on record with boat builders accordingly pulling out all the stops.

Boating New Zealand brings you a sample of the new models coming soon to a dealership near you.
