Miami Boating Lifestyle Draws Real Estate Buyers

Miami Boating Lifestyle Draws Real Estate Buyers

The Miami boating lifestyle has long appealed to waterfront home buyers and visitors alike. In addition to yachting, fishing trips, and casual sunset cruises, the city draws tens of thousands of visitors each year for the Miami International Boat Show. Now, there will be a new reason for boating enthusiasts to enjoy the Miami waterways with the addition of The UIM E1 World Championship, the world's first electric boat-racing championship, coming to the city next year. 

Marc Anthony Leads Team Miami

The E1 Miami team, which recently won the E1 Puerto Banús GP, is led by legendary recording artist Marc Anthony so it comes as no surprise that the UIM E1 World Championship, otherwise known as E1, has announced that a race will be held in Miami in 2025. Although no specific date or location has been determined, the event is drawing international interest in part due to its unique commitment to conservation and super-star team owners.  

“It is going to be a couple of days of culture, entertainment, style, sexiness, just the right amount of danger,” said Anthony promoting the 2025 Miami event.

E1 is committed to the ocean’s health and marine conservation, which is a prime concern among boaters in Miami. The race boats are electric and there are charging points at race venues with the goal of shifting towards greener marine practices.

Anthony isn’t the only celebrity backing the new boat-racing league. Other notable team leaders include Will Smith, Tom Brady, and Rafael Nadal. 

Single Family Waterfront Home Market Popularity Continues to Grow

Fueled by exciting events and majestic views, luxury waterfront single-family homes continue to soar in popularity in Miami. A report by Miami Realtors found that “Among $3M+ single-family homes sold through the MIAMI MLS in 2023, 41% were waterfront properties, while 91% of condominium/townhomes were waterfront properties.”
