The PowerBoat Guide

Tracking Today’s Fast-Paced Brokerage Market

The largest collection of current and out-of-production boating information available anywhere. At any price.

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 forth decade of publication, it remains the reference tool of choice for hundreds of marine industry professionals.

“The PowerBoat Guide is a must-have resource for yacht brokers, surveyors, and hard-core boating enthusiasts.”

–Steve Moynihan, President, HMY Yacht Sales
