That could mean Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or West Palm. FLL is probably "most dockage close to the airport" but unless you want to crawl at zero-wake speed for an hour till you hit the inlet, it may cost you as much as Miami, where at least you can look for a spot near/in Biscayne Bay. Dunno much about West Palm, the dockage really doesn't get reasonable until you hit Vero Beach or points north, and you may have problems trying to get a direct flight into there.
I'd turn it around, decide how much commuting you are willing to do, see what flights you can get to fit that requirement, then see if there's any reasonable dockage within range of those airports.
Year-round in Florida is also going to mean finding someone to care for the boat during hurricane season, unless you have it hauled or moved for that. If you just tie it down in May, you can expect it to be submerged by October.
