Editorial staff

Boating Business fiercely protects its independent editorial stance. It always strives to project an informed, unbiased opinion. And opinion is a key point which sets Boating Business apart from other titles in the industry.

The editorial comment sets the tone, but the entire publication – including the internet-based eNews – doesn’t hold back from commenting on issues which may affect the readers.

Our award-winning designers ensure the Boating Business print and online titles remain lively, attractive and easy to read.

Katina ReadKatina Read: After a ten-year career as a reporter on local and regional newspapers, Katina decided to move sideways and set up her own marine focused PR and marketing company.

She returned to journalism as a freelance writer for various marine magazines, including Boating Business and sister magazine Maritime Journal, and became the regular feature writer for Boating Business in 2014.

When asked to take on the role of editor, Katina was thrilled to take on the challenge of taking the magazine forward.

As a keen sailor and yacht owner, Katina has always had a strong interest in the marine industry, the companies involved and the opportunities and challenges faced by those who work in it and is enjoying the chance to get to know them better.
