The 29th annual Yachts Miami Beach, the city’s premier luxury yacht show, takes place from February 16-20 on Collins Avenue, across from the legendary Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels. The in-water-only display of new and pre-owned vessels, covers more than 1.2 million square feet of space from 41st Street to 54th Street with the world’s most extraordinary and uniquely designed yachts and superyachts from the world’s foremost custom boat builders.
Starting today, this spectacular show will introduce a new look and layout with changes designed to deliver superior guest and exhibitor experiences. The show’s new layout highlights its picturesque, waterfront location along Indian Creek Waterway as attendees enter through five artfully designed show entrances, each with attractive way finding graphics and an information booth. Foot traffic has been redirected from the sidewalk along Collins Avenue to the show’s network of new floating docks, where guests will find food and beverage concessions in a welcoming environment where they can spend time and enjoy the show.

The yachts are this year arranged in dedicated new and brokerage sections, making it easier than ever before to find specific boats. Additionally it creates an interactive and inviting sales environment for exhibitors and buyers. The show has also enhanced the gorgeous new Superyacht Miami location at Island Gardens Deep Harbour on Watson Island to accommodate deep draft vessels up to 500′. To see the more than 20 superyachts on display at this location, interested guests can make appointments by contacting exhibitors with displays at the venue or with Show Management.

At the Yachts Miami Beach Benetti will unveil further details about the new range BNow. Under this new brand, created by the shipyard in collaboration with architect Stefano Natucci and British Design Studio Redman Whiteley Dixon, Benetti will add new energy to the shipyard’s identity, creating a new benchmark for the future.

The shipyard, in fact, will combine the semi-custom yacht construction techniques with the interior décor of a custom superyacht, replicating the semi-custom model it uses at its Viareggio shipyard also in the Livorno facilities. In Viareggio, the construction of superyachts is based on predefined naval platforms that combine the benefits of haute couture interior decoration featuring extensive customisation, with the production times usually possible only with series manufactured yachts.
With Benetti Now, this working method has also been introduced at the Livorno shipyard, applied to yachts over 50 meters in length, even though, technically and financially speaking, it is a much more complex process. Benetti Now represent for the shipyard both a revolution and a new business model that brings significant benefits in terms of time and money, as well as being designed to satisfy the needs of brokers and owners the world over. The goal is to simplify as far as possible the ideas and desires of a potential customer when faced with a major purchase like a yacht over 50 meters in length. And to deliver their “turnkey dream” in the shortest possible time.
The superyachts in the new BNow range will all be over 50 meters in length and built from steel and aluminium at the Livorno shipyard. Four models will be available: B164 (50 meters), B192 (58.6 meters), B214 (65 meters) and B240 (73 meters).
