Ausmarine, formerly Professional Fisherman, is the only national magazine servicing the Australian and New Zealand commercial and government marine industry. Published monthly since 1978, AusmarineÂ has become by far the most widely read commercial marine trade magazine in Australasia. It is aimed at supplying Australasia's professional mariners with the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the products, personalities and politics that affect their industry.
During its more than 32 years of publication Ausmarine and its predecessors have witnessed incredible changes within the commercial and government marine industry and have been closely involved in not only reporting these changes but has also become the voice of professional mariners allowing their opinions to be heard in the corridors of power.
No other publication encompassing this region is so highly focused towards the owners and operators of commercial and government vessels.
With regular editorial contributions from some of the industryâ€™s highest profile personalities, Ausmarine is always challenging in regard to the issues that affect the livelihood and welfare of Australasia's commercial marine industry.
Whether the subject is politics, plotters or pumps, each issue of Ausmarine offers its readers information and ideas as to how to improve the efficiency and profitability of their business operations through the adoption of new technology and equipment, improved operational techniques and systems, and by simply providing them with the information required to make the right business decisions.
Australian and Pacific mariners maintain their vessels at the highest levels possible and regularly update their equipment. They have little hesitation in spending money to do this and will purchase the best products regardless of price, for not only does their livelihood depend on it but, in a potentially hazardous industry, their lives may as well.
Ausmarine's regular ship and boat reviews are always a highlight and a critical talking point among readers. In every issue newly built vessels are reviewed by our technical journalists providing insight and analysis on their performance and equipment. Supported by glossy photos of the vesselsâ€™ more important features, these reviews provide readers with an excellent guide to whatâ€™s on offer when it comes to the purchase of their next vessel. Over the years these reviews provide an excellent cross section of the Australasian commercial fleet.
The combination of these editorial sections together with our popular section on Gear which highlights the latest Australian and international equipment releases and the extremely successful Classified Advertising and Brokerage sections, where individual readers and companies can buy and sell such items as gear, boats, licences, engines ships and services, underlines the fact that Ausmarine continues to be informative, accurate and effective for its readers and advertisers alike.
The magazine reports and comments on decisions made by governments and by industry leaders and, importantly, on the effects of those decisions. By receiving and reading a copy of Ausmarine each month, subscribers ensure they have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the issues that are vital to their industry.
