Bonnier announced the promotion of Mary South to editor-in-chief of Yachting.

South, who had been deputy editor, joined Yachting in 2007 and has been integral to the brand as it expanded beyond its magazine presence and onto new media platforms.

She joined the magazine as senior editor and was promoted to deputy editor last year. She is an accomplished writer whose byline has appeared in many national publications and monthly for the last four years in the pages of Yachting, where she has written about rounding Cape Horn, exploring the Amazon, sailing the Inner Hebrides and countless other boating topics.

HarperCollins published South’s nautical memoir, “The Cure for Anything Is Salt Water,” in hardcover in 2007 and in paperback in 2008. She previously spent many years in the book-publishing industry, working for Rodale, Riverhead Books, Little Brown, Ballantine and Houghton Mifflin. A graduate of Chapman School of Seamanship’s Professional Mariner Training, each summer South lives aboard her 40-foot steel trawler in Newport, R.I.

“As deputy editor, Mary drove quality improvement, market share growth and digital innovation,” David Ritchie, director of editorial operations for Bonnier’s marine titles, said in a statement. “She has the respect of her team and her audience and I look forward to watching this brand thrive under her leadership.”
