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.
September issue is a terrific example of our determination to deliver Australia’s most
comprehensive coverage of Australian boating – now evidenced by the way AB is fast becoming three magazines in one. Each could be a stand-alone magazine in its own right, but given the strained economic circumstances affecting the industry at the moment, separate magazines are no longer viable - but one big, all embracing online production certainly offers a well-focused pathway to the future.
Of particular interest in September, is the broader coverage of sailing – especially in the Whitsundays this month – with the Airlie Beach Race Week followed by the Hamilton Island Race Week. Plus we have the very latest on the Golden Globe Race problems, a comprehensive Review of the magnificent Oceanis Yacht 62 and the September edition of the superbly produced The World Sailing Show.
At the same time, renowned TV fishing personality and author Steve Starling leads a very strong team in the trailerboat and fishing section with his Part One of his in-depth Two Part Report on Fishing Reels – and he’s ably supported by our hard working, “renovation” specialist, Brooke Frecklington who has momentarily swapped her fishing tackle for an angle grinder! (true!). It’s an inspirational renovation project that will allow this talented lady to fish and explore estuaries and impoundments in a really first class estuary rig she and husband Denis have literally built from the keel up.
PW continues his study of the latest trends and thoughts surrounding plate aluminium boat design and construction in Part 3 of this 4-part series, and we publish an 18 page coverage of the family boats of interest at the Sydney and Brisbane Boat Shows. Neil Dunstan’s has in-depth 600 hour report on a pair of Mercury’s Big Block 150s – hey, this is a seriously good issue! AB September #262 is a big, diverse, vibrant 148 page production (with 74 videos to watch) so we’re very confident you will thoroughly enjoy this terrific production.
