As the closest superyacht marina to the 2023 Miami Grand Prix, Pier Sixty-Six Marina is preparing to welcome visitors from around the world for Formula One’s return to South Florida on May 5-7, 2023. This will be one of the most exciting weekends of the year in Fort Lauderdale, as Formula 1 brings unrivaled glamour, glitz and glory to the Sunshine State – plus speeds up to 200mph.
F1 is more popular than ever in America. The debut Miami Grand Prix in 2022 was a sell-out, with plenty of celebrities soaking up the adrenaline-fuelled atmosphere and luxurious amenities.
This year, marina guests at Pier Sixty-Six for the Miami Grand Prix will enjoy an incomparable VIP experience, with personalized concierge services and stellar hospitality. We can arrange helicopter-to-track or police-escort transportation, source F1 tickets, or arrange access to parties or local restaurants. The atmosphere at the marina will be lively all four days, with exquisite hospitality including onboard cocktails and more, plus big-screen race viewing for all the practice and qualifying events, and for the F1 race itself. Marina guests will also gain access to exciting local events, parties and VIP zones, and the F1 gifts for owners are always spectacular.
Experiences At The F1 Track
At the Miami International Autodrome, a trackside ‘marina’ with real luxury yachts and shimmering painted ‘water’ stole the show at last year’s F1 Miami, adding a hint of Monaco-style glamour. The water may be an illusion, but the yachts are very real, with renowned manufacturers including Hinckley, Azimut, and Midnight Express providing exceptional, top-of-the-line yachts for guests to enjoy every day at the circuit.
The trompe l’oeil water inspired plenty of good-natured memes, with fans and even sportscasters posting selfies ‘swimming’ or ‘walking on water’. Thanks to surging interest and demand, this year’s trackside marina is even larger and more luxurious, with superb hospitality.
The 2023 MIA Marina overlooks turns 6, 7 and 8 of the F1 track. This year, the Miami Grand Prix has added MIA Marina Grandstands with a host of luxury experiences.
F1 fans can book a trackside yacht at MIA for 15-20 VIP guests. Onboard, they will enjoy close-up racing action from the privacy of the yacht, with above-deck seating, onboard TV broadcasts of all the race action, and a private dock-side lounge. Onboard beverage service includes beer, champagne and white wine (no red wine allowed, for obvious reasons).
Note: while Lewis Hamilton arrived at the 2022 F1 Monaco Grand Prix in his personal Sunseeker 90 yacht, the Miami Grand Prix track is land-locked. The F1 track wraps around the Miami Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Springs, which is very close to Fort Lauderdale. Pier Sixty-Six is the closest real marina for superyachts, just 12 miles from the F1 track.
Formula One (F1) is the most prestigious motor-racing competition on the planet, and South Florida can’t wait to be part of the excitement again. Fort Lauderdale is the perfect Grand Prix destination for F1 drivers and fans alike – who can enjoy the thrills of racing during the day and the yachting lifestyle at Pier Sixty-Six by night.
Gripping F1 Excitement
The 2023 F1 race at The Miami International Autodrome promises to be even more thrilling than last year. The challenging and winding track will have a new, “grippier” track surface for more side-by-side racing and high-stakes overtaking. The hospitality will be exponentially more dazzling in 2023, with a new three-tier Paddock Club overlooking the start/finish line, featuring impeccable service and amenities, and even a stylish rooftop bar.
If you’ve never been to Silverstone or Monaco for the F1, you can experience all the heady excitement right here in South Florida. There are plenty of amazing experiences on offer, from F1 driver appearances, to an exclusive walk around the pit lane, a guided track tour or VIP passes into the F1 Paddock, the inner sanctum where drivers, teams, sponsors and media gather.
This year, Formula One is moving the F1 Paddock inside the Hard Rock Stadium, so fans in the stands can hope for a glimpse of last year’s winner, Max Verstappen, or other top drivers, from Lewis Hamilton and Daniel Ricciardo to Charles LeClerc of Ferrari.
The entire weekend will be riveting, with a festival-style ambience extending from South Beach up to West Palm Beach, and with the yachting capital of the world, Fort Lauderdale right at the heart of the action. South Florida will be in a celebratory mood, with trendy restaurants and bars, concerts, parties, and pop-ups offering a taste of the excitement to those not lucky enough to have a highly desirable ticket. The Miami Grand Prix has practice and qualifying events on May 5th and 6th, with the F1 race itself on Sunday May 7th. Find all the details of the 2023 Miami Grand Prix here.
Pier Sixty-Six Marina looks forward to welcoming an eclectic and interesting group of race fans for the F1 excitement, here and at the track. Many slips are already booked, so reserve yours today to join the celebrations.
