The National Marine Manufacturers Association will hold an invitation-only reception on Feb. 14 in Miami to preview its inaugural event, Superyacht Lifestyle Miami, which will debut in 2015.

The reception will be held from 7:30-10:30 p.m. aboard the M/Y SeaFair and will include hors d’oeuvres, “bubbly on the Luxe Lounge” and entertainment.

NMMA president Thom Dammrich will deliver a presentation discussing next year’s event at 9 p.m. aboard SeaFair, which will be at Bayfront Park’s south dock next to the Intercontinental Hotel at Chopin Plaza.

Superyacht Lifestyle Miami is expected to run concurrently next year with the NMMA’s Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show, as well as the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach, which is co-owned by the Florida Yacht Brokers Association and Show Management.

Show Management is owned by Active Interest Media, the parent company of Soundings Trade Only.
