Renowned for their affluent demographic audiences, these events make for the perfect shop window for your business and ours alike. With free copies handed out directly to show visitors from our exhibition trade stand at some of the most prestigious Boat shows, including the Southampton International Boat Show!

In today’s increasingly connected world, with the internet, social media and email we find ourselves bombarded by an intrusive wave of businesses pushing products and services on us as we go about our own busy lives. British Boating Magazine is different. We believe that people are most receptive when they are in control, when they are at leisure and when they choose to be. Print advertising really is fast becoming the only form of non-intrusive marketing today! We give our readers the option of taking our magazine home with them and most likely onboard their boat!
So put simply, our readers will only pick up a magazine and read it should they want to, giving you the perfect receptive audience whilst at complete leisure and away from all outside distractions for your marketing. No other form of marketing can offer this.

Printed on a high-gloss, heavy paper, British Boating Magazine is perfectly bound in every sense. From our warm, inviting introduction talking you through each edition, to our editorial features to educate and lose yourself in, we pride ourselves on creating the perfect platform for your marketing, seasonally tailored to fit your business trends - we have it all.
