PassageMaker Magazine, the only publication dedicated to covering the boats, people, gear, and destinations of the trawler and ocean motorboat cruising lifestyle, continues to embrace the evolving media world by connecting with the readers and the industry community through our print, online and in-person events, and now with the iPhone/iPad app.

Think of PassageMaker Magazine as the only guide to all things marine. Our readers, owners of traditional full-displacement trawlers, faster semi-displacement trawlers and lobster-style boats and multihulls, pilothouse motoryachts, trailerable cruisers, and even bluewater motorsailers, rely on the articles in every issue because PassageMaker Magazine covers the systems, electronics, techniques, destinations, maintenance issues, and more. Whether it’s building custom trawlers or maintaining vital engines, keeping a galley shipshape, or handling emergencies at sea, it’s important to our readers.

With the help of our well-regarded contributors and industry experts, our goal is to assist the cruising crowd from the moment they have decided to purchase a vessel, to the time they begin planning their voyages, to the moment they get under way, and PassageMaker Magazine is always with them as they cruise extensively. Our readers actively use their boats and are always in need of up-to-date information about new electronics, repowering, communications, gensets, better fuel systems, serious running gear, and entertainment accessories.

Enjoy PassageMaker Magazine in a format as mobile as you are while out cruising!

Worst Digital Reading App

Trawler T

Great magazine! Terrible app! Loses subscription data. Super slow to load. So many great digital reader apps available - why did PassageMaker chose this one?

Great magazine, some tech problems


Great magazine. All you whiners out there cut them some slack while they make the app transition. What's the big deal? You'll get your magazines. Find something else to cry about.

Not working yet


Hard to tell what the developers and the magazine are thinking. You can't download the issue that is displayed online. If you have the old app and a full year's subscription, they can't figure out how to get you the new issue with the new app. They blame apple. Amateur hour.
The mag is great and I look forward to each issue (I own a trawler). But they are not adapting to new technology well.
