Admire twin-hulled art

If you’ve ever seen a catamaran, you know that these boats look like a work of art. The catamaran builder Sunreef Yachts collaborates with an artist annually to wrap one of its yachts in a special work. 

Together, they create a true floating art piece. Select guests get to cruise onboard, too, with the artist. However, you don’t have to be a customer to appreciate the colorful catamaran on the horizon.


Catch the watercraft NFT wave 

Now in day’s everything is an NFT (Non-Fungible Token), even boats like personal watercraft (PWCs), cigarette boats, and superyachts which you might’ve seen if you attended Art Basel Miami in 2021. 

More yacht designers and builders are getting involved in them, so expect announcements leading up to the art fair.

Celebrate DJ Khaled’s birthday on a boat

Pro Boatsetter Tip: There are many experiential companies that sell tickets to A-list celebrity events you might be able literally to step off your boat into the fun. 


Spot superyacht 

The slips at marinas like Yacht Haven Grande Miami at Island Gardens will hold some of the largest yachts in the world for this event. 

This marina is minutes from the convention center and has terrific views of downtown Miami. The superyachts docked here belong to art-collecting cruisers or host epic parties onboard.

Admire artsy yachts  

Sanlorenzo, an Italian yacht builder, is a global partner for the art fair here and abroad. Many of Sanlorenzo customers take their own yachts to Art Basel Miami. Because of this, Sanlorenzo created a platform dedicated to art, Sanlorenzo Arts, to engage with current and potential customers in new ways. This year, it’s presenting a project with the artist Tony Lewis.
