Whether you are interested in a mega-yacht or a modest fishing boat, Miami is the place to be.

This year, one of the world’s most prestigious yacht shows has found a new home. The 31st annual Miami Yacht Show takes place in downtown Miami at One Herald Plaza, Feb. 14-18. Super yachts can be found at Island Gardens on Watson Island.

The fair offers collectors and connoisseurs an array of works, featuring emerging talent from the contemporary market, mid-career artists, blue chip contemporary, post-war and modern masters presented by 65 international galleries from more than a dozen countries.

The 78th annual Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show also begins Thursday at the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin and will include a new conservation village.
