It provides an entertaining mix of vital information for cruising yachtsmen with all levels of experience, which maximises their enjoyment, increases their skills and gives them the confidence to broaden their horizons. Yachting World is the most international yachting magazine, known throughout the world and bought and read in over 100 countries. It is synonymous with quality, authority and excellence. From blue water cruiser to super-yacht, Yachting World has the best in nautical writing and photography, up-to-the-minute technical reports, equipment valuation, new boat tests and informed comment. Practical Boat Owner is Britain's biggest-selling boating magazine and a brand readers really trust. A source of useful and helpful information for boat owners, both power and sail, it helps them get the most from their chosen leisure activity. Its affluent, but practically-minded consumers find PBO is a forum for interacting with like-minded individuals. Now in its 100th year, Motor Boat & Yachting is Europe's premier motor cruising magazine. MBY's boat tests are acknowledged as the most authoritative in the business and its technical coverage is without equal. In addition, no other publication offers so many motorboats for sale. Core editorial coverage focuses on boats up to 80ft, while four times a year MBY also carries Custom Yachting, a special focus on 80ft+ boats. The UK's hardest-hitting and favourite motorboating magazine, MBM is firmly focussed on practical motorcruising. With editorial coverage ranging from the booming RIB and sports boat markets right up to 40-foot cruisers and beyond, MBM's comprehensive range of new and secondhand tests ensure that readers are always equipped with the very best buying information.
