PowerBoat Guide is back with print edition

American Marine Publishing is resuming its print publication of the PowerBoat Guide, a reference book used by yacht brokers, surveyors and marine lenders nationwide.

"Renewing book production will mean a lot to customers who use the PowerBoat Guide in their business," said Ed McKnew, president of American Marine Publishing, in a statement.

"Like most small businesses, we were forced to cut back during the last couple of years to make it through the worst of the recession," he added. "For us, that meant reducing printing costs, our single largest expense. Although we offered the 2010 and 2011 editions on CD-ROM or as a download from our website (www.powerboatguide.com), our customers made it clear that they preferred the physical book for its portability and convenience."

Published annually, the PowerBoat Guide is a comprehensive reference directory for late-model powerboats 27 to 65 feet in length. It includes factory photos, specifications, interior plans, production notes and retail high/low values.

The book provides hard-to-find information for more than 1,500 new and used powerboat models.

American Marine Publishing has produced the PowerBoat Guide annually since 1989.
