Australian Amateur Boatbuilder Magazine is an exciting publication now in its 23rd year and is designed to capture a market not being catered for by other publications. Australian Amateur Boatbuilder is the only magazine of this nature published and distributed throughout Australia.
Boating magazine circulation statistics in the USA reveal that the "hand on" format magazines is the major growth area in boating publications. Practical Boat Owner, published in the UK, has always been one of the biggest selling yachting magazines in Europe.
As publishers of the popular and successful Multihull World Magazine we were aware of a growing demand for a construction/repair style magazine, and research indicated that boating enthusiasts in Australia were keen to have a local publication. This ready made market has ensured excellent sales through news agencies and a continued growing subscription list. Over a dozen regular writers and/or contributors are continually providing articles for Australian Amateur Boatbuilder, most of whom are ardent sailors/owners, builders/designers and technical advisers, thus giving the reader a diversity of opinions.
Each magazine contains a minimum of 88 pages and is published with a 150 gsm art board cover and has a large subscriber base plus print run of 12,000 copies which are distributed nationally by Gordon & Gotch throughout Australia and New Zealand thus giving your advertising dollar maximum coverage.
The practical knowledge in each edition of Australian Amateur Boatbuilder Magazine gives it high retention value and ensures a longer than average life span for advertisers' investments.
