New England Boating Magazine to Launch in February of 2013

Lighthouse Publications and Lighthouse Media Solutions announce the launch of New England Boating Magazine, a new annual, high-end, 4-color, glossy magazine focused on the New England boating lifestyle and culture. Publication of the premier issue is scheduled for early-February 2013.

New England Boating focuses primarily on the region’s many beautiful, interesting and exciting places to visit by water. Each article features an overview of a particular port, as well as important information boaters need to know about the area, including marina listings, anchorages, launch ramp locations, harbormaster contacts and where to find fuel and service. Also included are suggestions on local dining, accommodations, shopping, fishing and other fun, interesting things to do and see in port. Readers seeking additional information on a particular destination can do so via QR codes linking them to BoatingLocal.com, a content-rich online source of boating news, videos, cruising and fishing information focused on New England.

“Our goal is to bring each boating destination to life through intriguing, well-crafted articles and stunning photography that make the reader want to jump in his or her boat and visit these places,” says New England Boating Editor Tom Richardson, a former editor at Offshore and Salt Water Sportsman magazines and publisher of BoatingLocal.com. “The region’s boaters want a magazine that celebrates and understands the unique culture of boating in New England, and we aim to deliver.”

“We are thrilled about this new launch, which will become a significant part of our stable of high-end, quality magazines focused on important niches within the New England community,” said Lighthouse President and CEO Rusty Piersons. “From Southern New England Weddings, Living, and Southern New England Home to Home Remodeling and Golf & Leisure Cape Cod, our magazines celebrate lifestyle and leisure activities, and a way of living here in New England. Aside from our expertise in producing quality consumer publications, we can also deliver to advertisers multi-media capabilities within each niche, including TV and video production, website development, email and social media marketing, web marketing and market expertise to companies and organizations that wish to exceed in these specific arenas.”

New England Boating will be distributed to a select audience of 35,000 readers via newsstand, boat shows, advertiser locations and direct mail to include advertisers’ clients and potential clients.
