Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors
Since 1987, Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors magazine has celebrated and explored the unique culture and active lifestyle of living on the Maine coast. Their team of Silver Editorial Excellence Award–winning writers, photographers, and illustrators showcases Maine’s unique ecology, cuisine, and art through tightly crafted prose and vivid images in each issue. Readers travel to popular and lesser-known cruising grounds, peek at the work of yacht designers and artisan boat builders, and step aboard vessels ranging from dinghies to yachts to doomed cardboard rafts. The magazine’s life-on-the-water coverage also extends to the architecture of homes and gardens lining the coast and relives the historic events that built the region’s rich cultural heritage.
