Power & Motoryacht named veteran marine journalist Charlie Levine as executive editor. Levine replaces Jeff Moser who was promoted to editor-in-chief of Soundings Trade Only.

Most recently Levine was editor and publisher of and a contributing writer for several titles in Active Interest Media’s Marine Group. (Soundings Trade Only, PMY and Outboard are part of the AIM Marine Group.)

“The secret sauce for Power & Motoryacht’s success is not much of a secret — we’ve created a tight-knit core of talented editors all pulling in the same direction,” said editor-in-chief Dan Harding. “Having worked closely with Charlie on stories for PMY and Outboard, I’ve seen the energy he puts into every story. I know he’s going to be the right fit for this team.”

The author of Sucked Dry: The Struggle is Reel and the incoming president of Boating Writers International, Levine brings wide-ranging editorial experience to this role.

“Charlie’s first-class reputation amongst his peers and his relationships in the industry make him a valuable asset to Power & Motoryacht,” said Marine Group president Gary DeSanctis. “And his experience in the digital media landscape is something that will only benefit our group.”

“I'm extremely excited to assume the role of executive editor,” Levine said. “PMY is a venerable title that I've enjoyed for years, while Outboard is just beginning to grow legs in what is one of my favorite segments of the industry. I am looking forward to jumping in and chasing down stories that engage our readers and celebrate our shared love of boats and spending time on the water.”
