Australian Boating (AB) Current Issue (6 p.a).

<b>Australian Boating Is Now Bi-Monthly </b>
Thanks to all the dramas Australia has gone through in the last couple of years, culminating in the domestic and international impact of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the toll on the Australian boating industry has been considerable.
It is becoming extremely hard to produce editorial material of the interest and standard we need and our readers expect.
Doubtless things will get better in ‘due course’ but we are not confident that anything much is going to change in our world in the forseeable future - especially as new boat manufacturing lead times can run into many months.
Slowing AB down to a bi-monthly format (that means 6 issues a year, instead of 12) for the rest of 2021, or until we can see how things are working out, will reduce the editorial and production pressures on the magazine considerably.
However, despite COVID-19 and its associated problems, we have assembled a cracker issue for #290, as we ended up ‘stacking’ a number of projects into the one edition. Check this out:
The Vendee Globe - the 22,000 nm solo yacht race around the world that has been such a huge success, has finished. We have full details of who came where - along with more fabulous IMOCA 60s photography.
The America’s Cup has now wrapped up in Auckland, too - and Planet Sail’s Matthew Sheahan has produced an excellent “100 Second America’s Cup Summary” report which reveals just how completely the Kiwis beat the Italians in the end.
F&B readers have a lot to enjoy in AB March-April, especially as Jeff Webster has re-joined the AB Team with a regular series of boat tests coming through. In this issue, he’s testing the very impressive Bar Crusher 615 BR  - definitely one of the best set-up FAMILY platies we’ve seen in an Aussie build for some time.
Galeon 325 GTO is a name we should all note – this is one of ‘those’ boats that in years to come, we’ll all be saying “Remember that Polish built Galeon GT ? That was the boat that started this new trend . . .” It makes a spectacular debut in AB, and is easily the most exciting new high performance production cruiser concept the world has seen in many years.
Maritimo’s Offshore M600 Flybridge is a powerful new blue water sports cruiser that stakes its claim for “Best In Class” amid the clamour of pretenders from overseas.
Torqeedo is going gangbusters with their electric inboard “Deep Blue” engines, and working up a huge international clientele with a range of very clever, smooth, quiet, easily started and managed electric outboards – especially for small craft. We have a beaut report, and an excellent video on the new 1103 and the little 2hp equivalent, Torqeedo 603.
It’s all happening in this very complete March-April issue #290, and we’re already working to ‘stack’ the next issue – the AB May-June issue #291.
