Show Management found alternative, longer routes for boats entering and leaving the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach because of a sea grass mitigation project being done by the Army Corps of Engineers.

The expansion of the Port of Miami has generated a sea grass mitigation project in Biscayne Bay that has the effect of narrowing a pathway for boats attending the upcoming Yacht & Brokerage Show on Collins Avenue to about 70 feet.

As a result, show organizers are reaching out to exhibitors with specific instructions on how to navigate to the show on Collins Avenue, which abuts Indian Creek. Guide boats and tugboats will assist boats that choose to take the narrowed route.

“We are continuing to work with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Miami to mitigate this issue,” Show Management said in a statement. Show Management and Soundings Trade Only are owned by Active Interest Media.

The show will take place Feb. 13-17 in Miami along a mile-long strip of Collins Avenue between 41st and 52nd streets. It is co-owned by Show Management and the Florida Yacht Brokers Association.

“We are happy to announce that the 2014 show is sold out with a waiting list, so buyers should have the best ever selection of boats to purchase or charter,” organizers said.
