Where would you like to advertise?



We reach more Chesapeake Bay powerboaters than any other publication. We print an average of 30,000 copies per month, 12 months a year, and 100% of the readers are interested in powerboating and the Chesapeake Bay. There is no "wasted circulation" with PropTalk. PropTalk is easy to find at more than 950 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Active and would-be boaters find PropTalk at marine centers, restaurants, visitor centers, yacht clubs, and cruising rallies. We have carefully built and closely track our distribution network. We know how to get your message into the hands of the most active powerboaters. Off the shoreline, PropTalk reaches boaters at home in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Richmond, Northern Virginia, Baltimore, and Southern PA. PropTalk is locally owned, locally produced, and is an active part of the waterfront community. Thanks for your interest in the Chesapeake's only powerboat magazine.

PropTalk Reviews:

"As the Mid-Atlantic dealer for Riviera Yachts and Jefferson Marlago center consoles, we have been extremely happy with the results of our PropTalk advertising. They have created a very unique product that targets our customer base, both the cruising and fishing markets. I always say that for a free circular with its widespread distribution and access, it provides more information of interest to both me and my clients than many subscription publications. We have seen a direct sales result from both our display and brokerage ads even in the current market which easily justifies their cost. Further, it is great dealing with everyone there including my rep, as they are all active members of the boating community, which I think leads to a lot of their success. I look forward to many years of working with them in the future." Ned Dozier, The Yacht Group
