Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S. is looking to sell several of its publications, including Boating magazine, according to reports.

Advertising Age reports that other titles up for sale include Cycle World, Flying, Popular Photography, and Sound & Vision. It was unclear whether the titles were available individually or only as a group.

A spokeswoman for the company told Soundings Trade Only it had no comment on the report.

Hachette also publishes Elle, Car and Driver, Road & Track and Woman's Day magazines, Ad Age reports.

HFM U.S. is part of Lagardère’s media division Lagardère Active, a producer of media in more than 40 countries. Its sister companies in the United States are Hachette Books, Curtis Circulation Company and Cellfish Media.
