Boat Features
We like to say that we look at the coast of Maine from the deck of a boat. For more than 22 years, we've been covering Maine boats and boating, from sweet little peapods to custom power, lobster, and sailing yachts and everything in between. This section will satisfy your boat lust with photos and videos of gorgeous custom builds and funky one-designs, and also point you to fine cruising areas, report on regattas and events, and keep you in touch with the waters of the Gulf of Maine all year long.
