The Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show will be held Feb. 14-17 and organizers expect it to attract more than 3,000 boats and 2,000 companies worldwide to three locations.

Organizers said the show, which has venues at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center and Miamarina at Bayside, draws more than 100,000 visitors and is the city’s largest event, with an economic impact of $597 million in Florida.

“The Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show brings together the best of the best in recreational boating. An annual tradition, the boat show offers something for buyers and dreamers alike, whether you’re in the market for a new boat, in need of the newest marine innovations, wanting to further your nautical know-how or simply enjoy some on-water fun,” show manager Cathy Rick-Joule said in a statement.

The new yacht and powerboat show takes place at Sea Isle Marina; Strictly Sail Miami is at Miamarina at Bayside; and the Miami Beach Convention Center’s offerings include boats, engines, electronics, accessories and nautical gifts.
