Lighthouse Publications Launches New Boating Magazine

New England Boating Magazine is a new bi-annual, high-end, 4-color, glossy magazine featuring New England boating destinations, lifestyle and culture. 

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

“Our goal is to bring each boating destination to life through 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 host of BoatingLocal.com. “The region’s boaters deserve a magazine that celebrates and understands the unique culture of boating in New England, and we aim to deliver.”

New England Boating is published by Lighthouse Publications and Lighthouse Media Solutions.
