Miami Boat Show Poker Run And Exhibit 2022—By The Numbers And More

With the Florida Powerboat Club Miami Boat Show Poker Run and Exhibit fleet in Key Largo this weekend, we decided to take a by-the-numbers look at the 2022 happening. Those numbers, of course, don’t tell the complete story—they never do—but they do paint a picture of a robust event for the equally robust high-performance powerboat segment of the marine industry.

Fans of Midnight Express Boats will find plenty to enjoy including the company’s 43-foot center console No. 100 and a stunning new 43 Solstice. Plantation Boat Mart is bringing Blackwater’s first Mercury Marine Verado 600 outboard engine-powered 43-foot center console, as well as three Deep Impact center consoles.
