PassageMaker now has a video component to complement its written new boat coverage. Our new online video channel is dedicated to presenting reviews of the latest powerboats suitable for cruising under power.

“These videos are intended to give you the feel of getting a private, personal tour of each yacht at a boat show, without leaving the comfort of your home,” says AIM Marine Group's vice president of digital media, Captain Chris Kelly.

“As the success of YouTube has shown, people like video. It’s an action medium that can effectively convey certain information to boat buyers—or just boat lovers—oftentimes better than the printed word and still photography,” PassageMaker editor-in-chief Peter Swanson says. “We are fortunate to have an expert videographer in Chris Kelly, and someone who really knows his subject matter.

Created in a partnership with, PassageMaker caught up with several manufacturers after the recent Annapolis and Ft. Lauderdale boat shows to take a first hand look at some of the newest offerings, including theCutwater 30, Marlow Manship 32, Ranger Tugs 31, and the Outer Reef 860.

You can expect to see videos after each of the major boat show. You can view them all by clicking here, or by following the new boat review videos button next to the PassageMaker banner at the top of every page.
