Motor Boat & Yachting is Europe’s best motorboating magazine. It’s also the oldest, with a history dating back to 1904. Our long experience in motorboating means our boat tests are acknowledged as the most authoritative in the business, while our technical coverage is without equal. Each month we detail the best new boats on the market, and cover cruising areas that are both practical and inspirational. Core editorial focuses on boats up to 80ft, but we also venture beyond the 80ft barrier in our monthly Custom Yachting section. Have a look at our great subscription offers.
