BoatUS Launches Used Boat Watch Internet Magazine
ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 1, 2009 – When money is tight, more boat buyers look for value in the used boat market. To tap into that increasing interest in the pre-owned market Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) launched a new bi-monthly Internet magazine today, Used Boat Watch.
Leading the launch is PowerBoat Guide Editor Ed McKnew, who in partnership with the 600,000-member boat owners organization edits the e-publication focusing on late model powerboats. Much like a traditional buyer’s guide with pictures, cabin layouts, and retail high-low values, Used Boat Watch provides BoatUS members with side-by-side reviews of popular powerboat models going back to the 1980s.
With articles like “Top-selling Sea Rays Always in Demand,” and “20 Time-Tested Motoryachts from the 1980s,” each issue of Used Boat Watch will appeal to current boat owners, perspective boat buyers, marine industry professionals, and boating enthusiasts everywhere.
“I know that with Ed’s expertise, Used Boat Watch will be a credible source of information for our members, said BoatUS president Nancy Michelman. He’s an authority on the subject of used powerboats and his reputation in this industry is well known.”
McKnew continues to publish the annual PowerBoat Guide — often called the “Yacht Broker’s Bible” — now in its 20th year.
BoatUS – Boat Owners Association of The United States – is the nation’s leading advocate for recreational boaters providing its 600,000 members with government representation, programs and money saving services. For membership information visit www.BoatUS.com or call 800-395-2628.
