As we are feeling generous here at Practical Boat Owner magazine, we are giving you the opportunity to join us as a subscriber with a special, one-day only deal that saves 50% on the full subscription price.

The deal for £15.60 by six-monthly direct debit can be stopped after six months, or allowed to roll on – working out as £31.20 for the whole year.

With 13 issues of PBO produced each year, that makes it £2.40 an issue instead of the £4.50 off-the-shelf price.

PBO editor David Pugh said: ‘It’s a great deal, and actually it’s £2.40 cheaper than our best boat show offer, which is £18 for the six-monthly direct debit.’

You may be a faithful reader of PBO and buy each issue at the supermarket or newsagent and you may ask yourself: ‘Why should I subscribe?’

In addition to the obvious reasons that you don’t want to miss a single instalment of the building of our new project boat, a Secret 20, or any of the practical know how that each issue of PBO brings – here’s the other benefits:

  • We send your magazine to your address every four weeks – no effort required on your part!
  • As a subscriber you pay less that you would at the newsagent. You will only pay £2.40 for each issue, instead of the £4.50 off the shelf price, with the lower price guaranteed for 12 months.
  • You get access to the ipad/iphone editions thrown in at no extra cost and you can download your first digital magazine right away.
