Lighthouse Media Solutions announced a recreational boating-based, destination-rich television series that is set to debut July 1 and be shown on Monday evenings at 7 p.m. on the New England Sports Network.
“New England Boating TV,” sponsored by GMC Trucks and Boston Whaler in concert with their New England network of dealers, will explore the region’s ports, bays, harbors and lakes and provide viewers with boating information and interesting things to do.
The show, produced and directed by Eugene Allen, focuses on one boating destination each week. “The show is a blend of entertaining travelogue and informative boating guide,” Allen said in a statement. “It appeals to all types of boaters, from fishermen to sailors, paddlers to cruisers.”
Each episode of “New England Boating TV” delivers advice from local experts on a variety of topics, including good places to fish, kayak, water-ski, fuel up, grab a mooring or slip or simply drop anchor and hit the beach. Viewers also will get historical background on each locale, as well as the scoop on restaurants, shops and attractions.
Episodes for 2013 will feature 13 destinations, including Mattapoisett, Mass.; Camden, Maine; Essex, Conn.; Wickford, R.I.; Lake Champlain, Vt.; and Lake Winnipesaukee, N.H.
The show seeks to complement the group’s New England Boating magazine and website.
