Boat Magazine is an independent travel and culture publication that focuses on a different, inspiring city for each issue. From Sarajevo to Reykjavik to Lima, Boat Magazine shines a different kind of light on cities with big stories to tell.
For each issue, we physically move to the focus city for a few weeks setting up our studio and working with locals to create the content. The locals get to decide what they want the world to know about their city, and we work day and night to uncover stories that don’t usually get told. This inside/outside approach to a city keeps the perspectives varied and balanced and the overall content raw and often surprising. Digging deep in each city, Boat Magazine presents gritty, honest, inspiring editorial through interviews, features, stunning photography, personal profiles, artwork and fiction.
Our aim is to act as a great big RESET button – changing and updating readers’ perceptions of what the city is actually like. Because we spend a good amount of time in each city, you won’t get the typical fly-by top 10 lists, tourist hotspots or new openings – you’ll actually get to meet the locals, learn some secrets, and be inspired by these cities that are full of life and passion.

“One of the most exciting new titles we’ve seen in a while.
A brilliant concept and equally brilliant execution.”
“Not so much a magazine as a nomadic event…
respectful, enjoyable and ambitious.”
“Part of a growing crop of compact, niche magazines.”
New York Times
“A labour of love by people passionate about
design, it looks beautiful.”
“Very taken with this magazine that pushes itself
original ethos, succeeding quite spectacularly at its
attempt to present the Bosnian city Sarajevo as the
protagonist of their story. Some truly lovely bits of writing.”

“A great idea for a magazine, allowing creativity
blossom for the cause of good.”
