Cruising World cover March 2013

Cruising World magazine took top honors at the 2012 Boating Writers International Awards ceremony at the mid-winter Miami boat show, sweeping the entire travel and destinations category and taking the lion’s share in others.

The magazine’s staff members and contributing writers took a total of 17 awards with five first-place awards, four second-place awards, and four third-place awards, in addition to four honorable mentions. It’s become an annual rite of recognition for the high quality of the CW editorial brand, which has consistently edged out competing marine publications over the last several years.

Along with award-winning sister publication Sailing World, CW and winners Yachting and Boating are part of the Bonnier Marine Group, a division of Bonnier Corporation.
