The Internet has become the major source of marine business information, just as proven a revolution for all business sectors.
For three years I enjoyed my role as the editor of a national marine business print magazine, as well as contributing to various other international industry and lifestyle publications. But when it came to news, I was frustrated with the delay between the event and breaking the news to the marine trade.

When the opportunity came to take up the role of founding editor with MarineBusinessNews.com , working with the largest marine news group in the southern hemisphere TetraMedia (publishers of Sail-World and Powerboat-world), it was an irresistible opportunity.
After all, this is the way you and I and millions of people, aged 16 to 66 consume their news!
10 weeks into the job, the online marine trade news audience in Australia and the Asia Pacific has surpassed traditional print media for reach and immediacy. MarineBusinessNew.com is the most widely read marine trade publication in the Asia Pacific. Time is opportunity and money. The marine trade can’t afford to get information 30-60 days later than it appears online.
Each week, we send out 17,600 newsletters to the marine industry and similar additional numbers catch up with the trade news from the site. Large numbers of our readers have been reading Sail-World.com and Powerboat-world for years so they anticipated 24/7 news, like the others supply for the sailing and boating community.
