Thank you! It is your readership of Powerboat-World.com that has seen us expand quite dramatically in 2018, most significantly during, and then just as importantly, after the European Summer.

In addition to new products and boats, maintenance, safety, cruising, and marine life, we also ran some boat tests, which have proven to be very popular, so again thank you. Here are the year's tests, and we look forward to presenting more material for you to peruse in 2019. Being global affords us the opportunity to really see what is happening in every important market, and how aspects might apply in other locales. We’re really enjoying bringing you all of that, and if you have something to add to it all, then please make contact with us via email.
