Sailing Magazines for Mariners

1) Latitude 38 Magazine

The West's Premier Sailing & Marine Magazine. Since the publication of our first issue in 1977, Latitude 38 has championed a way of life with a style unique among sailing magazines. Often imitated but never matched, we've gone from that funky regional publication to a laid-back California standard to an "alternative" authority for sailors across the nation and around the world.

Style, readability, wide-ranging demographics, long shelf life: those are just a few of the reasons Latitude 38 offers advertisers the best value in the market today. Another important one is reasonable rates. Like everybody else who discovers the magazine, you'll be in for a pleasant surprise.

2) Latitudes and Attitudes

Each Quarter, Latitudes & Attitudes is the #1 selling marine lifestyle magazine on the newsstands. Welcome to the world of cruising!

3) 48°North

Each month, the entire issue of 48° North appears online in addition to its traditional print format. The online version is identical to the print version, meaning ALL classified ads will be placed online exactly as they appear in print version. The online edition includes hyperlinks for all email and web addresses -- readers will only have to click on your ad to be directed to your website or email address! The 40,000 viewers who visit on a monthly basis are only a click away form reaching you directly!

4) Caribbean Compass
