After long and careful consideration, magazines are our new offering. We've carefully chosen what we believe to be the best selection to match our lifestyle, ethos and customers.

Boat Issue Twelve: Faroe Islands has now sold out. Please get in touch to pre-order Issue Thirteen.

As a sneak peak, the publishers have let us know that "The next Boat Magazine will be a bumper BEST OF BOAT double-issue full of the best stories we’ve published so far, updated and improved and re-published in glorious paper-and-ink, with some new ones thrown in there, too." .

About Boat Magazine:

Six years ago we started Boat Magazine as an experiment.

The goal was to focus on complicated cities with big stories to tell. Boat would act less like a traditional travel magazine, and more like a big fat REFRESH button for a place that had been buried by doom-and-gloom headlines, or forgotten altogether. We’d ask locals what stories they wanted to tell about their city, and we’d explore it as outsiders, too. I loved the idea of arriving in a place that had been shouted about as one way, to go in search of all the other ways it might be, too. Boat Magazine would simply shed a light on the people and stories we find, as we find them, and we’d see how it goes.

We started in Sarajevo in the middle of winter, then went to Detroit in search of the city beyond ruin porn, and we decamped to Athens during the riots, we fell in love with the hush and history of Kyoto, we surfed off the coast of Lima, and learned about death in Bangkok…

One issue turned into another, and another.

Now six years and twelve cities later, Boat Magazine is sold around the world. We’ve been honored to have writers like Dave Eggers, Jeffrey Eugenides, Nick Hornby, Jon Ronson, Haruki Murakami, and Pico Iyer contribute. We’ve featured stories with Diana Athill, Mario Testino, Moby, Warpaint, Moses Sumney a survivor of the Hiroshima atomic bombing, the world’s strongest man, a bonsai master, teachers, aid workers, NBA players, politicians, religious leaders, refuse collectors, cock fighters, architects, genetic researchers, farmers, artists, Olympic sprinters, spiritual healers, distillers, ambulance drivers, anthropologists, city planners, economists… the list goes on and on and on.
