When it comes to living lavishly, Miami knows what’s up. Everyone here wants to party like a VIP, and that’s especially obvious during Yacht Week, happening February 13-17. But you don’t need to be a millionaire to party like one during this year’s bougiest boating festivities. Day passes for the Miami International Boat Show and the Miami Yacht Show start at just $30 and include prime access to yachts that cost more than some mansions in Sunset Islands. If you really want to live your best life during this exciting time, here are four fabulous experiences to cross off your Yacht Week checklist.
Lounge like a billionaire on the Sunreef Endless Horizon
You’ll certainly have a healthy pick of megayachts to oggle at the Boat Show, but we’re going gaga over Sunreef’s Endless Horizon. It’s the first time this 80’ catamaran (and its sister ship, the 50’ Paz) have ever been seen in the United States, and you absolutely need to stop by Sunreef’s booth for a tour. Come hungry, too — Chef Nicolas Mazier of MILA will be onboard Endless Horizon serving delectable dishes from the recently opened and wildly successful Miami hotspot, all paired with wine by Whispering Angel and cocktails spotlighting Barcelo Imperial Rum. Swing by Thursday, February 13, or Friday, February 14, and you’ll also get to enjoy glasses of Mionetto Prestige Prosecco onboard, which tastes just as delicious by itself as it does in a spritz.
Kick back at The Deck at Island Gardens in between touring mega yachts
Both the Boat Show and Yacht Show will each host a ton of great food and drink vendors, but we suggest saving room for lunch at The Deck at Island Gardens. In celebration of Yacht Week, the waterside restaurant and lounge will stay open for lunch February 13-15. The Deck at Island Gardens has also teamed up with Chateau d’Esclans and Whispering Angel to host a gorgeous pop-up flower market during Saturday’s lunch. If you stick around for Sunset Sparkling Hour from 6-8 p.m., you’ll get to enjoy specially priced drinks.
Keep the glam vibes going strong on the Serenity 64
The world’s newest leader in solar-powered yachts, Serenity Yachts is celebrating its U.S. debut at this year’s Boat Show. Stop by their booth and linger aboard the stunning Serenity 64, a zero-emission stunner with three luxurious cabins and interiors inspired by Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing.
Tuck into a special Boat Show feast at Juvia
If you think Juvia’s rooftop brunch is legendary, don’t miss the special prix fixe menu this Miami Beach mainstay is launching around Yacht Week. From 11:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. during Boat Show days, guests will have the option to enjoy a prix fixe three-course lunch priced at $55. Standouts from the menu include crispy wagyu beef gyozas, Mediterranean branzino, vanilla panna cotta and more. Enjoy it this week only while it lasts.
