Welcome to Australian Boating. . .
  Our national, monthly PDF magazine dedicated to all kinds of recreational boats - fibreglass power and sailing boats, imported boats, plate aluminium fishing boats, pressed tinnies, composite fibreglass boats, DIY boats - if it floats, and gets you out there, we're interested!
Australian Boating
is an independent, national magazine with a great deal of experience, a passion for all kinds of boating, fishing and cruising - and we are dedicated to helping you have a great time on the water with your family and friends.

Starting off the New Year, we've changed tack slightly, and recognising the surprising number of mid-level sports cruisers going into full production from manufacturers around the world, we decided to make what is virtually a supplement on the latest and greatest – and what a list of boats we achieved.
We kick off with Fontaine Pajot MY 44, a seriously impressive high-performance power cat from this renowned French boatbuilder. This is followed by the awesome Pursuit 355 Sport Fishermen, surely one of the finest examples of the best in American boatbuilding (and fishing) we’re going to find. Next we have the Jenneau-built, Merry Fisher 895 Marlin, the walk around you have when only one side is used for the walk around, enabling a bigger, more sensible helm saloon. Clever design, terrific fishing set up, one that will have ‘bottom’ fishos queued up to see it working. Then we have the boat that stopped the recent Fort Lauderdale boat show – the striking new Four Winns Vista 355 Coupe. This is destined to be very well received for the Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne markets. Fabulous interiors, mind-boggling day boat set-up that is going to mke the Vista 355 hot property for harbour cruising.
Lastly, we cap off the sports cruiser reveal with the Beneteau GT-50 Grand Turismo, a very special craft jam-packed with unique features and design innovation, and available as both the sedan version and what they call the ‘Sportfly’ for the flybridge model. We hate saying it, but it is (literally) the "state of the art" in 2019 sports cruiser design and fit out, right down to the hydraulic swimming platform and tender garage – true story.
But wait, there's more! AB also has a full digital preview of the Wellcraft 243F/Mercury 250 outboard sport fisherman, and a full preview on the brand-new Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht – so-called because it's a 39 Flybridge you have when it's been refocused as a sports motor yacht. It's a really interesting change in Riviera philosophy – and destined to be a surefire hit all over the world, as it steps away from the traditional fishing background these cruisers usually evoke.
Our sailing enthusiasts will love this magazine too. Sailing editor Di Pearson has a fabulous 16 page report covering a dozen or more championships and titles around Australia, and kicks off her section with the World Sailing Show TV episode with an exclusive report on the very latest developments in the multi-million dollar America's Cup showdown. We also feature the Oceanis 30.1, the latest family/cruiser/racer hot off the press –it was only released at the vast Dusseldorf Boat Show on January 20!
AB January is a beaut, 136 page issue with no less than 72 videos to enjoy, much fabulous international photography and news, and all your favourite regular features and columns. Check out the new subscription package too. You can now get 13 issues for the price of 12 for $69 – has to be a great way to start 2019.
