Veteran boating journalist, Jeff Webster, has released a new publication called Trailerboat Buyer’s Guide. This 148 page, full colour, square back magazine follows Jeff’s recent series on buying used trailerboats - including his most popular title, Secondhand Boat Secrets.

Moving away from the used boat market for this latest magazine, Jeff’s new Trailerboat Buyer’s Guide is a comprehensive guide and directory to purchasing a new power trailerboat – be it a small alloy tinnie, a weekend cruiser, or an offshore sportfisher.

Available now from leading newsagents throughout Australia (and online here), Trailerboat Buyer’s Guide contains chapters covering most aspects of buying a new boat – from choosing a boat, engine and trailer, through to fitting out your new boat with the latest safety gear and marine electronics.

To help with choosing the right type of boat Trailerboat Buyer’s Guide has a series of articles that examine the key features and attributes of the most popular types of powerboats – including aluminium tinnies and open boats, bay runabouts, sports boats and bowriders, family cuddy cabins and cruisers, coastal fishing rigs, and offshore sport fishing boats.

Concluding the magazine is a 52 page directory style guide to the best new trailerboats on the market from Australia’s leading manufacturers and distributors. The review pages contain three photos, a summary of each manufacturer’s boat range, along with the manufacturer’s contact details - so you can quickly follow up on any boat that grabs your interest, or flick between pages to compare brands and models.

Whether you’re serious about shopping for a new boat, or just curious about what is currently available in new power trailerboats, Jeff Webster’s new Trailerboat Buyer’s Guide is a worthwhile purchase. Newcomer or experienced boatowner, you’ll find plenty of interesting reading in this new publication.

Priced at $11.95, Trailerboat Buyer’s Guide is available now at newsagents and on the internet. Copies can also be ordered direct from the publisher by sending a cheque or money order for $12.95 (includes $1.00 postage) to Jeff Webster, PO Box 344, Labrador QLD 4215. Website
