The Jan/Feb 2013 issue of Canadian Yacthing hit newsstands loudly, both due to its 166 page thickness and heft, as well as its “notice me” art direction, by Petra Dueck. This issue will be hard to miss on newsstands, and may require a “mate” to help carry it home.
The cover price was just raised from $5.95 to $6.95...a 17% hike. The magazine has also increased its frequency from six to eight issues per year.
Sales of boats in 2012 were up briskly, and so were newsstand sales of Canadian Yachting. On the first five issues of the 2012, newsstand is up 334% from the prior year.
The magazine, first launched in January 1976, now has both a Western edition (seen here) as well as their regular Eastern edition.
