Source Interlink Media announced that Matt Trulio, the founder/publisher of speedonthewater.com and former editor at large for Powerboat magazine, was named editor-in-chief of Sportboat magazine.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to have Matt on board,” Sportboat associate publisher Victoria Newton said in a statement. “His credibility in the high-performance marine industry as a journalist is unmatched, and no one has stronger relationships with both the marine industry and its customers. He brings a wealth of creativity, vision and energy to the magazine.”

Trulio has more than 25 years of experience as a journalist and has held roles ranging from managing editor to executive editor and content producer for print and online publishing properties.

Trulio takes over for Eric Colby, who remains active with Source Interlink Media as a contributor to both Sportboat and Power & Motoryacht magazines. He is also the editor for Professional BoatBuilder magazine published by WoodenBoat Publications.

Bob Brown also will continue to contribute to Sportboat, the company announced.
