Sea Magazine said it will unveil its redesigned website today.

Utilizing a new platform that makes navigation simpler and opens up the screen for easier reading, expects to deliver a better user experience and a better complement to the printed magazine.

The expanded site also will offer more how-to content, with the inclusion of the magazine’s refit/refurbish section, and video will play a larger role, with boat walkthroughs and on-camera interviews with industry experts.

Visitors will be able to send questions to the magazine’s panel of boating experts and to a maritime lawyer. People who enjoy social networking will find it easy to connect with other Sea fans and share content via platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

“Readers are going to be pleased with the overall experience they find at,” managing editor Mike Werling said in a statement. “We are looking forward to increased interaction with site visitors and are glad we can provide a forum for boaters to find the information they need, both through the content we provide and from their fellow mariners.”
