The PowerBoat Guide

Tracking Today’s Fast-Paced Boating Market

Dependable boating information since 1988

Among the most quoted publications in the business, the PowerBoat Guide has been called the Yacht Broker’s Bible since the first edition was introduced in 1989. No other book is found in the libraries of so many boating enthusiasts, and nothing compares with the PowerBoat Guide in its coverage of today’s big-boat market. Now in its fourth decade of publication, it remains the reference tool of choice for boat owners and marine industry professionals.

A collection of 35 years of PowerBoat Guide content, the Legacy Edition provides important model information for 3,400 current and out-of-production vessels going back to the early 1980s. For marine surveyors especially, this is a one-of-a-kind reference guide to the most popular center consoles, trawlers, sportfishing boats, cruisers, and motor yachts produced over the past four decades.

Created exclusively for surveyors, boat dealers, and yacht brokers, this is a must-have reference tool for late-model powerboats of every description.
