Cool New Boats from This Year’s Miami Boat Show

22 top boats from one of the country’s largest boat shows.

This year’s Miami International Boat Show showcased some amazing new vessels and some larger boats with cutting-edge technology in the design and in the features.

We definitely saw a continuation of several trends such as dual consoles and catamarans. All builders, whether creating small 18-footers or giant, quad- and quint-powered luxury fish boats, also have kept an eye on family comforts while remembering the hardcore anglers. We rarely see a center console these days without forward seating, even loungers, and a fold-out transom bench.

We noticed too that many boats in the 30-foot-and-up range displayed a trend toward minimalism at the helm. Glass-bridge displays, once only characteristic on big sport-fishers, are now common as electronics network with all onboard systems, eliminating the need for multiple switches and controls.

All of this makes for great boat shopping whether in-person or online. Enjoy!
