The Active Interest Media Marine Group announced that Daniel Harding has taken the helm as editor of Power & Motoryacht, effective immediately.

“Dan has done a tremendous job of helping to grow the Power & Motoryacht audience by packaging compelling print content with engaging social media and video components,” AIM Marine Group publisher and general manager Gary DeSanctis said in a statement. “We believe he will not only engage the brand’s core audience but will attract the next generation of serious boater to become Power & Motoryacht readers.”

Harding was previously senior editor of PMY and will continue in his role as managing editor of Anglers Journal.

“Thanks to incredible stewards like the late Capt. Richard Thiel and George Sass Jr., Power & Motoryacht has established itself as the foremost authority on all things powerboating,” Harding said. “I’m honored to continue this proud tradition while working to advance the magazine’s digital and social media offerings to ensure our readers are the most knowledgeable and informed boaters on the water.”

Harding said he looks forward to working with the magazine’s seasoned crew, which includes Jason Y. Wood, Capt. Bill Pike, John Turner and Erin Kenney.

He is based in the Marine Group’s Essex, Conn., headquarters, where he will work under the guidance of magazine veteran Bill Sisson, editor-in-chief of Soundings Trade Only and Anglers Journal.

Harding enjoys spending time at the boatyard working on classic-boat projects, as well as cruising Long Island Sound. Prior to joining PMY he was managing editor of Yachting magazine and contributed to Men’s Fitness, Newsday and Boating Times Long Island.
