On Sale Now! Speed On The Water 2015 Special Collector’s Edition Print Magazine
To order your issue now, click the image above.
Brought to you by the producers of speedonthewater.com, the 2015 Speed On The Water Special Collector’s Edition Year in Review Print Magazine is on sale now. Priced at $20 per issue, the oversized, 132-page perfect-bound issue will be published in mid-December and distributed shortly thereafter.
Celebrating the very best of one amazing year on the water, the photo-packed issue will feature images from the top shooters in the go-fast powerboat world including Pete Boden, Jay Nichols and Tim Sharkey. Rick Damien, the award-winning former art director of Powerboat magazine, is handling the overall design and layout for the photo-rich collectible issue.
“Of course, there will be some text in the print magazine but for the most part we’re going to let the pictures tell the story,” said Matt Trulio, the founder and co-publisher of speedonthewater.com. “We’re paying the best photographers for their best work, and it’s on us to present that work in the best possible light. That’s why we’re working with Rick, who also designed our bi-monthly digital magazine and continues to produce layouts for it, and a printer who can deliver a top-quality finished product.”
A limited number of copies of the photo-rich magazine will be produced. Speedonthewater.com will continue to publish its bi-monthly digital magazine—the latest issue goes live next week—as well as produce daily news and its weekly newsletter, all of which are supported by an app available on iTunes and Google Play.
“Since we started the digital magazine almost three years ago, we’ve been asked constantly when we’re going to do a print magazine,” said Jason Johnson, the co-publisher of speedonthewater.com. “We’re thrilled to finally do one—Matt and I spent a lot of time working for Powerboat magazine and we’ve missed print, too. Now we’re ready to deliver something in print that we believe readers will love and keep going back to throughout 2016.”

We will be addressing the waiting list after all sponsor boats are registered and we know our final numbers sometime after May 1st. It is not to late to become a sponsor, if you missed out on registration and have a business that would benefit from the exposure.
