    I am not attending the Miami show this year, but I'd enjoy hearing about it from people who went -- how were the crowds, how was the ease or hassle of getting around, any really interesting new boats or yachts on display?

    Superyacht Show tickets at $100 each, $125 each for preview day, good way to keep down the crowds.

    We never had a reason to board a superyacht, but impressive to look at from the dock. Occasionally watch Below Deck to check one out.. LOL

    Serious buyers are all comped and for those just entertaining themselves, they don't mind them not being there. Whether it's a smart strategy or not is debatable, but it's definitely their strategy.
