First published in 1967, Practical Boat Owner is acknowledged as the best title in the world for boat maintenance and repair advice, together with seamanship skills relevant to both novices and seasoned sailors alike.
It provides trustworthy advice and information for boaters by highly experienced marine journalists.
Our editorial team members are also typical readers – buying a boat for £500 on eBay and slowly restoring it through a series of published features over four years.

Each year, the Ocean Cruising Club (OCC) recognises the outstanding achievements of blue water sailors and brings them to the attention of the sailing community.
