PowerBoat Guide debuts fishing-boat book

American Marine Publishing, publisher of the PowerBoat Guide, announced the company’s newest title, Trailerable Fishing Boats.

Featuring more than 600 late-model center consoles, walkarounds, dual consoles and bay boats, the 300-page book is designed as a resource for yacht brokers and dealers, marine surveyors and boating enthusiasts in general.

“Sales of saltwater fishing boats — most of which are trailerable — are solid in spite of the slowed economy,” company president Ed McKnew said in a statement. “This book covers most of the popular models up to 30 feet produced in recent years. It’s a quick-reference guide, actually, and includes the type of information brokers and surveyors access nearly every day.”

Those interested in learning more about Trailerable Fishing Boats are asked to visit the company website, where the table of contents, together with a few sample pages, are available for review.
