Almost every boating magazine with a little self respect has a Web site up and running. Unfortunately, for quite a few, their idea of a Web site is an advertisement with a cover picture and subscription information. How boring! It is safe to say that a lot of boating magazines are not dealing well at all with the competition and opportunities inherent in the Web. Here are some excellent exceptions:
US sailing magasine.
For Sale Magazine
...and links to a host of other "For-sale" Web sites and magazines by Freedom House Publishers.
Extensive site relating to catamaran sailing and sailing in general.
World and Sailing World Magazines
Definitely essential, with both scope and depth. The Web site design is another story.
Quarterly magazine for those who like to do it themselves. Lots of practical advice on their Web site also.
Quite a few interesting articles etc. to be found here.
English version of a French magazine.
Covering most topics related to multihulls.
English version of an Italian magazine. Excellent site.
Trawler and ocean motorboat magazine. Could do with some more editorial stuff on their Web site...
The Gulf of Maine cruising magazine.
Online version of an Annapolis MD cruising/racing magazine. Extensive used sailboat reviews, among many other things.
and Boating World
Whoa! Not all magazines are dumbfounded by the Web. The electronic home of Yachting World, Motor Boat & Yacthing, Practical Boatowner, and Yachting Monthly is aweinspiring. Look and behold!
UK Magazine covering all sides of yacht racing.
