Mark Corke is the new associate editor at BoatUS Magazine.

Mark Corke, a boating writer known for his technical acumen, has been appointed associate editor of BoatUS Magazine.

Corke was most recently a freelance writer and photographer for boating magazines that include Soundings, Sail, Cruising World, Southern Boating, Spinsheet and Lakeland Boating.

He is also an active SAMS-accredited marine surveyor in New England.

“Mark’s coming aboard helps us increase our focus on practical, hands-on DIY content that our active boat-owning readers tell us they want,” BoatUS Magazine editorial director Bernadette Bernon said in a statement. “His terrific technical writing, blogging and video skills combine with an authoritative voice that connects with our readers. Mark is the real deal.”

Prior to joining BoatUS, Corke was senior editor of Sail magazine, where he also conceptualized and put into production Boatworks, a new publication targeting the practical hands-on boat owner.

Sail, Soundings and Trade Only are owned by Active Interest Media.

Corke also has built five powerboats and sailboats and has cruised extensively in them. He is also the former projects editor at Sailing Today Magazine and has worked on home-building magazines and television shows for the BBC.

A Guinness World Record holder for the fastest “there and back” crossing of the English Channel in a kayak, Corke also holds a Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Ocean certificate.

He’s an experienced ocean-racing skipper and navigator and has been selected as a frequent NMMA Innovation Award judge.

He and his wife, Rita, own a 32-foot Grand Banks trawler, which Mark is rebuilding and chronicling in a DIY series online.
