The October issue of Motor Boat & Yachting is coming out this Thursday, 6 September and you will notice a few changes to the magazine...

Do not panic, do not adjust your set! This is the same Motor Boat & Yachting you know and (hopefully) love, it just looks a little different.

After seven years without a change, we felt the time was right for a refresh. We’re confident the new design looks cleaner, clearer, less cluttered and more contemporary, allowing the words and pictures to really shine.

It’s not just the look that has changed, the feel has too. We’re now printed on better quality paper that is thicker and whiter so that the colours really jump off the page.

We’ve also introduced a raft of new content, including two original column ideas written by a different MBY reader each month and a front section that cuts through the usual blizzard of news to bring you the only stories you need to read.

If you’re anything like me, any big change takes some getting used to – however, I urge you to stick with it. The look may not be familiar but I can assure you the stories are just as informative, entertaining and inspirational as ever.

And before you ask, I promise we will continue to feature a broad range of new and used boats, from affordable 20ft SUVs to 120ft superyachts – even if this issue is biased towards the top end due to our bi-annual Custom Yachting supplement.

I look forward to hearing what you make of the changes – email me your thoughts on mby@ti-media.com.
